Overview of the tour in Reykjavik

Our standard tour allows you to explore the tunnel in an easy and enjoyable manner. As the tunnel is a natural phenomenon, the terrain is quite rough and hard to maneuver. Therefore we have built a footbridge, making the tunnel easier to navigate. We have also installed lights in the cave to further enchance the experience and highlight the everchanging colors, landscape and geological formations inside the cave. This of course is all done in such a way as to disturb this natural wonder as little as possible. A guide will take you through the cave and tell you all about the geological formations, as well as sharing wonderous tales of Hollywood adventures, it ties to ancient South American tribe and other fascinating tidbits. This tour departs every hour, on the hour, from 10 am to 5 pm. The tour takes about an hour and is suitable for anyone comfortable walking on an uneven surface.
