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 our 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.
