You drive just 45 minutes outside Reykjavik and discover the Raufarhólshellir, one of the most incredible natural phenomena in the world. This 1,400 metre long lava tube was carved from white-hot magma by torrents during the Leitahraun eruption 5,200 years ago.

The sunlight plays with the breathtaking, colourful rock formations around you. During the tour you will learn all about the history of these amazing tunnels and the role that volcanic activity played in the formation of Iceland.

Then return to the base to share stories and reflect on this unique experience.
