The Lava Tunnel - Raufarhólshellir

Explore the magnificent lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir, one of the longest lava tubes found in Iceland. The tunnel is located just 30 minutes from Reykjavík and is accessible the whole year round.

A journey into The Lava Tunnel is a unique experience and a great opportunity to witness the inner workings of a volcanic eruption as one walks in the path of lava that flowed 5200 years ago. Paths and platform have been installed in the cave, making it easily accessble for most people. Award winning Lighting has been installed in the tunnel as well, clearly showing the unique geological features that the tunnel has to offer.
