The day starts with an exciting super jeep journey up into the Interior Highlands, with expansive views towards Vatnajökull icecap (the third largest extent of continuous glacial ice in the world) and travelling through the second largest lava flow in history of Iceland, the Laki lavas.

After few viewing stops along the way, we eventually arrive at the entrance to the biggest volcanic cave system in Europe, only recently discovered, created during the fissure line eruption of Laki volcano and craters in 1783-84.

There we will gear-up with helmet and a headlight and some warm clothing before we enter the caves and take an exhilarating subterranean adventure of exploration. The colors, forms and features to be seen within the caves are mesmerizing, not only because of their natural beauty but also because of the volcanic processes that created them; all will be described and explained by your knowledgeable guide.

After an enlivening and refreshing cave mission, and having eaten a tasty picnic lunch, we will then prepare ourselves for the fat bike ride. This will take us amongst the enormous lava flow of Laki, covered with thick and spongy moss, often a startlingly iridescent green in bright sunshine, especially after a rain shower.
