Overview

Our project of nature preservation and eco-friendly tours into Vigðelmir lava cave has ended. This page remains for data preservation. Vidgelmir lava cave is the largest of all caves in Iceland. The family in Fljotstunga farm has protected and taken care of it for 5 generations. We offer 90 min. guided tours 4 times daily during from May throughout September. The rest of the year tours are available upon previous request. With these tours we inform guests about the preservation of the cave, its archeological spaces and the Ice Elves that inhabit it during winter.

A new wooden walkway has made much more of this amazing cave easily accessible. The owners were warm and welcoming and the tour was really excellent. Definitely worth a visit.

This was a very interesting place and cool experience but was really very dangerous. Only people with excellent balance and eyesight should even attempt this tour. The cave is wonderful but most people should not even attempt to visit.
