On this tour, we visit the Lofthellir Lava Cave, entering the amazingly weird world of ice and darkness which will be explored underground. Our destination is a cave that boasts the greatest natural ice sculptures currently known in an Icelandic lava cave.
The whole trip is an adventure as you drive through the volcanic outback of Lake Myvatn on the way to the cave, passing Hverfjall volcano and driving alongside the crater row of Lúdentsborgir. The drive from Myvatn to Mt. Hvannfell is around 45 minutes.
After a 30 minute walk across a lava field adorned by endless ropey lava, we reach the Lofthellir Lava Cave. Inside the cave, you will find natural ice sculptures of all shapes and sizes, formed by dripping water for thousands of years. This unique underworld will leave you in awe. At least one hour is spent inside the cave, observing this remarkable and some say unbelievable natural phenomenon.
