Lava caving & earth cooking

  • In this tour we will explore with you one of many caves that the south part of Iceland has to offer. We will share with you and explore the geological history of the caves as we travel into the darkness with our lights shining the way. You will witness spectacular lava formations as we work our way into the cave. In the end of the cave we will stop for lunch and offer you a chance to taste some of the old Icelandic traditional food as well as telling you few stories about the trolls that are believed to use the caves as their habitats.

    After the lava cave we will travel to Hveragerdi, where we will go for an easy hike and explore hotsprings that came to life in a big earthquake in the year 2008. We will share with you our local knowledge and show you how we cook food in the ground/hotspring from the source of the volcano. We will cook hotspring cooked soup and eggs in the hotspring and taste a geothermal cooked bread
