What you'll experience.
Become a certified Víðgelmir cave master and experience the full size of this mighty cave first hand.
During the tour, you will venture into one of the worlds largest caves. At around 148,000 cubic meters, Víðgelmir lava cave is thought to be the largest of it’s kind in Iceland and one of the largest in the world. Inside the cave you may find beautiful ice formations and further inside the cave there are lava stalactites and stalagmites. In 1993, archeological remains were discovered inside the cave. Bones and jewelry from the viking age were a part of what was found and since then the cave has been preserved and entrance is not allowed unless with guidance. Víðgelmir lava cave is by many specialists considered among the most amazing caves in the world.
Entering the cave has never been easier for you, using the aid of the all-new walkway. At its end you will leave the civilized cave world behind and venture on. Through bolder fields and rugged terrain your very experienced guide will lead you on, seeking out the rarely seen depths of the cave. It’s a pristine environment frozen in time so tread lightly.
