Full description
After hotel pickup in Reykjavik, your private tour starts as you hop aboard your super Jeep and take off from the city with your guide. You will enjoy a scenic drive through southwest Iceland, admiring views of the volcanic environment of the Reykjanes Peninsula. This is a piece of the island home to hot springs, sulfur springs, and valleys, that flow into dark rocks and gaping craters. Underground volcanic activity and cooled lava soil prohibit vegetation from growing here, so you'll see bald landscapes that appear to be lunar-like. You will visit a lava field to take a short hike to the entrance of the lava caves. You'll explore two caves during this tour, following your guide through the caves and learning about their formation which occurs when lava drains during a volcanic eruption. A helmet with a light will be provided so you can observe your surroundings inside the caves, such as rock formations, ice formations, stalagmites, and stalactites. Following your cave exploration, your tour will later end with your return to Reykjavik for drop off at your accommodation.
