Viðgelmir Lava Cave Explorer
Trip ID: IS72
Tour duration: 1.5 hours
Hailed as the mightiest of Iceland's caves, its diversity and grandeur is unrivalled. This makes for an experience not to be forgotten. Just shy of 1600 meters / 5250ft, the cave features amazing colours and lava formations that lurk in the depths of the earth.
This is a family friendly tour that all generations can enjoy, thanks to the all new signature walkway and feature lighting.
Caves are often dark, tight and uninviting places; however this is not the case on The Cave Explorer tour!
What used to be slow traveled rugged terrain is now easy and enjoyable, thanks to the signature walkway, caving just became family friendly. Leading from one great hall to the next the path is lit slightly flowing through this magical underworld.
The stunning beauty of Víðgelmir lava cave lies in the amazing colours and rock formations that used to hide in the dark. Not any more! With fixed lights at selected locations this impressive cave can now be enjoyed with all that it has to offer.
The Cave Explorer offers the very best of caving, the ease, the light and the dark!
