Cave Exploration Lofthellir winter challenge tour takes you to Lofthellir Cave, a unique lave cave filled with ice formations, stalagmites and sculptures. During the winter season the route to the cave can get rough, due to snow and ice, so we bring along the snowshoes along. The track is usually around 40 minutes hike across a rugged lava field. Thus we combine the pristine untouched snow covered lava fields around the cave with an underground exploration. Once at the cave we spend at least one hour inside the cave, exploring the ice formations, darkness and strange atmosphere inside 3000 year old lava tunnel.
On route to and from the cave we explore the lava fields and craters around Lake Mývatn, especially the crater row of Lúdentarborgir.
