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.
