- The Lava Tunnel Raufarholshellir
After boarding the Reykjavik Excursions bus from the main bus terminal , we were at the Lava Tunnels in approx 30 minutes. We were provided with helmet and crampons before we entered the underground tunnels. The tour was about an hour and our guide was very knowledgeable with a good sense of humor . The tunnels are beautiful with the iron oxide formations. And towards the end of the tour you also experience total darkness in the tunnel as part of tour experience. Remember to wear good shoes as the surface is uneven
Both the Northern lights and Lava Tunnel were fantastic experiences... The Lava Tunnel excursion takes you down under ground apx 1km in the tunnel.. then they turn out the lights...
We went on the golden circle tour with the greenhouse and the lava tunnel tour. In hindsight I’d have preferred the lava tunnel & golden circle combined tour but the ones we did were good. The tour guides were great and very knowledgeable. Buses were easy to get to and dropped you off back at nearest bus stop to hotel.
Golden circle tour is not to be missed! We took our 7 & 4 year olds and we never felt rushed. Just enough time at each place. Lunch at Geysir was lovely and they had more than enough time to choose some souvenirs. We had the iPads ready to stop boredom while travelling from place to place and the usb on the seat helped keep them fully charged! I loved hearing Daisy (sorry can’t remember the full Icelandic name!) explain the history, mythology and science of each place. She was so knowledgeable. Would recommend this company.
