Our guide, Raggi, was excellent. You need waterproof top and bottom. Be prepared to military crawl a short distance. Very beautiful inside. The walk through the lava field was a great bonus. Looks like nothing you have ever seen.

I am guessing there is not much difference between the tours other than driving time. Lake Myvatn is where the offroad portion to get to the Cave starts. Aukreyi is quite some distance from Laka Myvatn.
