    What to Expect
    Leave from your at your hotel in Reykjavik for a 9am or 1pm pickup time. Drive roughly 30 minutes to Raufarhólshellir Lava Tunnel, one of the largest and most popular in Iceland and only accessible on a guided tour.

    Walk through the tunnel with your guide and learn about the volcanic processes that formed the tunnel thousands of years ago. This tunnel is of particular interest because of the beauty of its stalactites, whose many colors are illuminated by sunlight from the entrance.

    Make sure to wear great shoes as you will be walking over wet, uneven, terrain. But don’t let that discourage you from taking this tour! It’s an amazing sight to see!

    Reykjavik Excursions delayed more then 1 hour our trip. Disorganized. You have to bring any booking in printed form. Please search for another agent.
