About the Lava Tunnel
Explore the magnificent lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir, one of the longest lava tubes found in Iceland. The tunnel is located just 30 minutes from Reykjavík and is accessible the whole year round.

A journey into Raufarhólshellir is a unique experience and a great opportunity to witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption as one walks in the path of lava that flowed 5200 years ago.

The total length of the tunnel is an impressive 1360 m (4500 ft), the main tunnel being 900 m long. The tunnel is up to 30 m wide with headroom up to 10 m high, making it one of the most expansive lava tunnels in Iceland. Near the entrance of the tunnel the ceiling has caved in creating three beautiful columns of light inside the tunnel.  Every winter spectacular ice sculptures are formed inside the entrance of the cave making the experience of visiting the lava tunnel even more breath taking.

A trip through Raufarhólshellir is a unique opportunity to get a close look of the impressive forces of nature that emerge from the center of the earth and a guided tour of the wondrous world that can be found just under the surface.

The Tour

Tour allows you to explore the tunnel in an easy and enjoyable manner with a guide who will educate you of its geological formations, its ties to Hollywood and other interesting things. The tunnel is in many places covered in large rocks and difficult to pass. A footbridge and several paths have been built over the roughest terrain making the standard tour accessible by all. Impressive lighting in this part of the tunnel highlights the changing colors and clearly shows the powerful seismic activity that formed the tunnel.  The tour takes approximately one hour and all necessary equipment (such as helmets and headlamps) are provided.   Make sure you were sturdy shoes and some warm clothes.

Fishing is a great activity for people of all ages

We set off from Reykjavik´s Old Harbour and head out to Faxaflói Bay, where our experienced fishermen will usually spot fish in a flash! If you haven´t been sea fishing before, don´t worry, it is very easy, and our crew will happily show you the ropes, advising you on bait and passing on their knowledge of the seas. On our sea angling trips you are in with a good chance of catching cod, halibut, haddock, rockfish and pollock. Our sea angling tours are perfectly suited both to experienced fishermen and to those who simply wish to relax and enjoy the beautiful surrounding with a fishing rod in hand. Barbecuing the fish caught is indeed available and a popular option for the proud fishermen!
