From the hut there is an underground tunnel thought to date from the 12th or 13th century and was probably built during a time of conflict.

I booked for 3. We all absolutely loved it. Our guide Stephan was amazing at storytelling and had a great sense of humour. We all had an amazing time and learned some really fascinating stuff. Was something I was hestitant to book as I’m a bit claustrophobic but it was so beautifully lit I’d happily go again

When we got there we weren’t sure if we’d like the tour as the guide was real quiet. Once the tour started he was engaging, informative, and fun to listen to. Definitely worth the time to stop in and see the caves

Glad we downloaded this app on our drive to south coast and Jokulrason glacier. It included several spots as well as information animals and the landscapes.

Automatic start by location search is very practical and relaxing. You don't miss anything and the posts aren't too long, often even a bit funny.

Very good, many points on our route were addressed.
