Vatnshellir Caving (from Snaefellsnes Peninsula)


One of the most interesting features of Snaefellsjokull National Park is Vatnshellir Cave, a great example of a lava cave typical to Iceland.

Walk along the 200-meter cave and down 35 meters below the surface to experience unique colours and lava formations. This deep cave has been hidden from the outside world for thousands of years. Vatnshellir Cave was formed 8000 years ago!
