What to expect

Witness the inside of a volcano and walk along the path where lava flowed thousands of years ago. On this tour you will visit the lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir which is located only 30 minutes from Reykjavík. The lava tunnel is one of the biggest in Iceland and is up to 30 metres wide and 10 metres high.

The lava tube ceiling has caved in near the entrance, which creates beautiful columns of light. You will experience an amazing range of colors in the tunnel which is caused by the different mineral types of the rock. The lava tunnel is a unique nature experience and is like entering into a new world. You walk around 350 metres into the lava tunnel and the temperature in the cave is around 4 degrees. The cave has also been the location for scenes from the Hollywood movie Noah with Anthony Hopkins.

TUI Into Langjökull Glacier
Activities

TUI Into Langjökull Glacier

Iceland is famous for its glaciers but until recently, what lies underneath the Langjokull glacier had been a mystery. In 2010, the first manmade Glacier Ice Cave was carved to take people inside the heart of this remote glacier ice cap. What's more, you'll also visit the Hraunfossar Waterfall.After arriving at Husafell base, you'll climb onto a rugged snow truck to start your ascent to the ice cave, exploring the rugged glacial landscape along the way. An experienced guide will lead the way inside, where you'll see the magnificent blue ice buried deep beneath the surface that stays at a constant temperature of 0°.All this is combined with stunning waterfalls and panoramic views of the mountains as you make your way north to the glacier. And on our return, you might – with luck – catch a glimpse of the Northern Lights dancing through the sky.
