Our tour starts with an adventurous horse riding tour. We will explore the lava surrounding Mt. Helgafell volcano and ride through lava fields and across beautiful hillsides to the old Kaldársel sheep corral or to Lake Hvaleyrarvatn.
After the horse riding tour, you can enjoy delicious refreshments in our cafeteria before you are driven to downtown Reykjavík. From there you will be picked up and taken to the velvet darkness of the Leiðarendi lava cave. Exploring this magnificent lava cave and discovering the marvels that the volcano created more than 2000 years ago is a trip that everyone will enjoy. Leiðarendi cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and it is situated in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world. We will climb, crawl and walk on our travel beneath the surface.
