Join us and explore one of the longest lava tunnels in Iceland. Raufarholshellir is a unique experience that takes you through a cave system formed in a volcanic eruption over 5000 years ago when low-viscosity lava hardened and thickened above a still flowing lava stream. During our tour, an experienced guide will take you through the tunnel and tell you everything about this geological marvel. Exploring the tunnel is easy and enjoyable, a footbridge and several walking paths have been built over the roughest terrain making the tour accessible for all. An award-winning lighting system highlights the changing colours manifesting the powerful volcanic activity that formed the tunnel.
