Tour description
€183 per person

Experience the best of Iceland from a dual perspective when lava caving in Leidarendi underground cave, followed by horse riding on the surefooted Icelandic horse.

The tour starts with a lava caving expedition at Leidarendi cave, located near a volcanic crater south-east of Reykjavik. This 900 meter long lava tube is sometimes considered to be a subterranean wonder world, as it presents unique rock formations, such as stalactites and shelves.

Following the caving tour, the group will be driven to the Laxnes Farm for an afternoon Laxnes special tour. This is located in Mosfellsdalur Valley, a beautiful location on the outskirts of Reykjavik and therefore offers an ideal setting to get to know the friendly and popular Icelandic horse.

Did you know?

Did you know that the Icelandic horse is very friendly and relatively small in size, so should suit riders of all abilities. Some people like to call it a pony, but most Icelanders dislike this and proudly refer to it as the Icelandic horse.

Good to know

Pick up from hotels / guesthouses starts up to 30 minutes before scheduled departure time.

Although Leidarendi cave offers a relatively easy access, some crawling may be required.

Please be aware that the weather in Iceland can be unpredictable, so it is recommended to wear warm and waterproof clothing, and sturdy walking boots.
