Buri Cave

The Buri cave in the Reykjanes peninsula was discovered in May 2005 in the Leitahraun lava field. Over a kilometer in length and 10 meters (33 ft) wide, the innermost portion of the cave is the most impressive with a 17 meter (55 ft) long vertical pit created from a lava ‘waterfall.’ The entry chamber during winter is adorned with natural ice sculptures and icicles.
