Underworld - Caving


Caves may offer shelter from the elements and have often represented a vital part of Icelandic rural life, traditions and folklore.

But let's be honest... caving can simply be a lot of fun!

Less than half an hour away from Reykjavik, discover a hidden world under the black and mossy lava fields in Blafjoll, the Blue Mountains. You will walk into Leidarendi, a cave shaped as a typical Icelandic lava tube. There you'll get to know the wonders that volcanic activity has created in the years. We will crawl and walk on our journey beneath the surface, so be sure to bring good shoes and gloves.

This is an exotic trip for those that are not afraid of the dark and want to experience firsthand how Iceland was created.

What to bring:

  • Warm outdoor clothing
  • Waterproof jacket and pants
  • Hat and gloves
  • Hiking shoes


Minimum age:

10 years


  • Transfer to activity area,
  • Cave expert guidance
  • Headlight and helmet
  • Pick-up and drop-off at accommodation in Reykjavik
