Follow the path of the lava flow, about 200 meters into the cave and 35 meters below the surface to see amazing colors and lava formations. The 8000 years old cave is located in Snaefellsjokull National Park, about 10 minute drive from Hellnar.
All reviews lava tube spiral staircase total darkness great guide every hour cool experience guided tour minute tour hard hats experience complete excellent tour fun tour two weeks water dripping worth seeing lava formations scared of heights
The entire tour was very rushed and we had the feeling that we should run vs walking and enjoying the cave. It was ok to see (if you had time to look around), but a waist of time. It was a bit hard to hike.
All the reviews tell it like it is. Very dark and wet. Nice guides but you know they tell the same story many times a day. A bit hokey too! But that said, I’m happy I visited as I hadn’t been to any caves in...More
I was somehow confused and thought this was the “into the volcano” tour, and didn’t realize that this was a lava tube tour, but we were there so did it anyway. We have been to many other lava tubes in Iceland. Our tour leader was...More
There are many things in Iceland worth seeing but meals are extremely expensive. Geysers, waterfalls, glaciers, volcanoes, and geothermal facilities are interesting, but a bowl of soup for thirty dollars( can$), or a limited "seafood buffet" for over ninety dollars ( can$) make you feel...More
You can find this cave driving around the Snaefellsbaer peninsula. They have visits every hour at the hour. The organisation is pretty good. You get a helmet and a light torch, and you visit 3 sections of the cave.
It takes about 45 minutes, and...More
We had quite rainy weather when we travelled around shnaefellsnes and therefore decided to do this cave tour to escape the rain. We just went up to the small house next to the parking lot and bought the tickets for the next tour. We had...More
Quite frankly, I wasn’t sure what to expect. I always pictured going into a cave by walking into it not down into it. It was amazing, particularly when all the lights were turned off. The guide was informative. Well worth the time.
We did the 50min lava tube tour with Summit Tours. Our tour guide, Gummy, was fabulous. His humor & knowledge were a perfect mix to create a memorable tour. We had people from 20y to 80y in our group. The older ones went cautiously slow...More

We didn’t schedule our tour in advance. We arrived later afternoon and drove to the tour location and they put us on the next tour. We waited about an hour for that tour. We were there beginning of August last year.

We actually did a walk-in, no hassle just pay and get your receipt and wait for the next tour to start. We went during winter time so I was wondering if the crowd would be different when you are there. I did find a number through Google though (sorry seems like i cant share contact details here), maybe you can try calling?
I would say no concern for asthma, but the stairs are steep and winding - it was a bit hard to get inside (we went when the entrance was covered with snow in January). We had to crawl a bit, but I think in the summer - you... More
