Hailed as the mightiest of Iceland's caves, its diversity and grandeur is unrivaled. This makes for an experience not to be forgotten.

Just shy of 1600 meters / 5250ft, the cave features amazing colors and lava formations that lurk in the depths of the earth.

We offer a family friendly tour that all generations can enjoy thanks to our all new signature walkway and feature lighting. For those who desire more physical activity we offer a half day tour to the caves end.
