You don't have to be an olympian, but you do have to be in pretty good physical shape to do this tour. On my tour we did have a couple of people who found the efforts to be very strenuous and near the end of the cave I was genuinely getting a bit worried about one person. On a scale of 1-5 in terms of exertion, I would say this tour is about a 3/4. You have to crawl, roll, and squeeze in and out of tight places. I exercise 5-7 times a week and even I was sore after this! That said I absolutely LOVED it. The formations created by nature almost looked man-made, they were that beautiful. I also loved the moment when our hilarious guide asked us to turn off all our helmet lights to experience the complete darkness. It was truly a unique and fascinating experience.
Afterwards, the trip to the Blue Lagoon was also fantastic. It is a pretty popular destination so I am not sure there is much for me to say about it that hasn't been said. Relaxing, fun, etc. I thought it was helpful that the guides gave you two departure times, you could leave at 7pm or 9pm to return to Reykjavik.
It was a super tour to have experienced the caves of Iceland. Very knowledgeable tour guide. The stay at Blue Lagoon was the highlight of the day! We are most likely to come and visit Iceland again.
The tour was fantastic. Nice and friendly tour guide explaning everything in details. The company had provided us sufficient equipments (helmed, torch and florescent uniform) for the the cave adventure. Convenient inter- transfer point to the Blue Lagoon. Overall, everything is brilliant!
The lava caves are a sight to be seen. The formation of caves and tubes during an eruption is such a neat phenomenon. You will have to crawl and roll a few times during this tour, so be prepared to possibly get a few bumps and bruises. Safety gear is supplied so you are protected.
The Blue Lagoon is a wonderful experience. Going on a chilly day makes it an even more relaxing experience.
Well worth it!
Everyone knows the Blue Lagoon is amazing, but the Iceland from Below part of this excursion was AMAZING. The lava tubes are things of wonder and beauty and our guide was very fun/knowledgeable. I would highly recommend these combo.
Blue lagoon is amazing! Make sure u go on this tour. This door doesn't cover entrance few which was 30 dollars per person
Iceland from Below was scary but super exciting! you need to be in great physical shape for this tour. not for claustrophobics! Blue Lagoon was really a separate tour but oh how amazing!
Tour guide was excellent, made the lava tube trip fun and exciting. Blue lagoon may be a bit pricy (for what it is) but i still enjoyed the experience.
Iceland from Below was fun and informative, adding the Blue Lagoon was a perfect way to end the day!
Both parts of trip were brilliant, only frustration was having to return to Reykjavik and drop off the clients not going on to the Blue Lagoon at their individual hotels before retracing steps out to the lagoon. We would certainly do both attractions, but not as the combined trip.
The tour was on time and the driver was pleasant and well informed - there were a few glitches. The first thing was - the picture they are using to show what it is like in the cave is not accurate - not this big and certainly no water. The driver forgot the gloves we were to get so we all had to wear our own so they ended up dirty and soggy. We had enough time to get a quick bite between the two tours - that was good - the pick up after the lagoon was late. There is a little area you wait for the bus but it closed so we had to wait out in a windy snow storm for the bus to arrive. Thankfully he was only @ 10 mins late - I wouldnt have wanted to have waited much longer. Blue Lagoon was great!
The lava tube spelunking was great. Our guide was vey good. We had book above and below tour. The only change I'd make would be to have gone straight from the lava tubes to the Blue lagoon rather than having to return to the center of Reykyavik. Don't miss the blue lagoon and if you have teenagers don't miss the caving!
the below part was excellent. Exploring a cave was a lot of fun. The blue lagoon was something that I decided to exchange for the whale hunting tour. I'll save the blue lagoon for a future trip.
I think more info about what the cave involved would have been helpful. It was quite hard work and warning about how narrow it was would have been helpful. I don't think I would have gone if I had had a better sense of what ii would be like. The Blue Lagoon was great.
