In this guided Vatnshellir Lava Caving Tour you get to see the beautiful colors and lava formations in the cave. You will also experience the total darkness and silence found in the cave. Vatnshellir lava tube cave is 35 meters below the surface and was created as a result of an volcanic eruption, nearly 8000 years ago.
This tour allows you to experience one of the most accessible cave in Iceland and is suitable for most people. Even so, you need to be reasonably fit to walk down the spiral staircase into the dark cave. The lava floor in the cave can also be uneven and slippery at times, especially in winter.
