Cave Exploration Lofthellir tour takes you to the mystical world of darkness and ice in the Lofthellir Cave, a natural lava cave that boasts the greatest natural ice sculptures currently known in Iceland. The tour starts with a scenic flight from Reykjavík to Akureyri in North Iceland. You travel straight to Lake Mývatn after landing in Akureyri and from there along a rugged track to the unique volcano Hverfell, through the crater row of Lúdentarborgir to the roots of Mt. Hvannfell. After a 20-minute walk across a lava field which is adorned by endless ropey lava, we reach the Lofthellir Lava Cave. At least one hour is spent inside the cave, observing this unbelievable natural phenomenon. We make a short stop in the village of Reykjahlíð by Lake Mývatn before returning to Akureyri and catch the afternoon flight to Reykjavík.
This tour is also available from Akureyri & Lake Mývatn
