We offer 45 minute guided tours to Vatnshellir cave. It is one of the most easily accessible cave in Iceland. The cave itself is an 8000 year old lava tube created by volcanic eruption from a nearby crater in the Purkhólar crater family. As the lava rushed down the hill in a lava river it began to cool on the surface, creating a crust on top of the lava river. As the eruption stopped, all the lava from underneath this crust continued to drain out. That eventually left behind empty tube with roof on top that gradually cooled down.
Embark on a distinctly Icelandic experience with this guided tour of the 8,000-year-old Vatnshellir cave located in Snæfellsjökull National Park. In the company of a guide, you'll follow the path of the lava flow, around 650 feet (200 meters) into the cave and 115 feet (35 meters) below the surface, to see stunning colors and lava formations.
