Itinerary
Make your way to a designated pickup point in central Reykjavik, where you climb aboard a climate-controlled minibus for the roughly hour-long journey to Thingvellir National Park. Listen to a quick safety briefing and introduction to the park, then get fitted for spelunking and snorkeling gear.

Follow your guide to underground lava fields through Gjabakkahellir or Leioarendi cave. Climb through a lava tube and take a tour of the cave. Marvel at layers of rock and lava deposits in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world.

After a lunch break (at your own expense), continue to the Silfra fissure, which lies between the tectonic plates that separate North America and Eurasia. Put on snorkeling gear and a wetsuit to explore the underground pool. Your guide takes you to the pool’s most scenic areas.

Finish the daylong adventure with a drop-off at the departure point.

Awesome tour

The tour starts with the lava caving. It’s really cool to go underground and see the lava fields up close. The guide was very knowledgeable and funny. There was an elderly couple on the trip that could not finish the caving due to the physical...More

Out of this world experience!

Totally worth the money. Both parts of the tour were incredible. I did not know what to expect with the lava tube. I booked it because it seemed like a good use of the day, but I did no research at all into what that...More

No, we did not travel the golden circle. We traveled to the cave, came back to Reykjavik for lunch, then traveled to the snorkeling site.
