Evening Tour

We will enter through narrow cave entrances and find they reveal extraordinary scenery of lava formations and colors.

You will also see natural stalactites and many different rock formations making this a majestic and almost indescribable experience.

The tunnels become wide and high in places with an even floor. However, the trip can also be rather difficult in some places.

We recommend you wear good walking shoes or hiking boots which are suitable for walking on uneven lava surfaces.

After visiting Cave Leiðarendi, we drive through an extensive lava field south of Reykjavik towards our next stop: the Blue Mountains, or Bláfjöll in Icelandic. From a high stand point we will take a break from activity and enjoy the midnight sun and some splendid views. Then we return to the city and drop you off at your hotel, or just downtown.

Lava Tube Cave Leidarendi

Cave Leidarendi is about 900 meters long and situated in a lava field near a volcanic crater southeast of the town of Hafnarfjordur. It was first mapped in 1992.

The cave’s name translates as “End of the Journey” and was so named because of the carcass of a dead sheep which lies at the far end of the cave, where it reached its End of the Journey. It obviously fell into the cave through a shakehole and was not able to climb out.

Respect for nature and safety are our main concerns. There are no handrails, lights or any tools installed in or around the caves. We rely completely on the equipment we carry and it is important that people respect our guidelines.

On All Fours

The entrance to cave Leidarendi is a small pit that leads down into the cave; the cave itself runs in two directions and connects in two parts so it runs in a circle.

This tour is suitable for all who can walk on uneven surfaces and at times, on all fours.

The cave’s ceiling and walls are broken or collapsed in very few places and it is therefore easy to navigate. Although sometimes the cave’s ceiling gets a bit low so you might have to crawl for a short distance.

Torches

We’ll be using torches and not headlights. There are a few reasons for that, mainly because headlights are weaker than torches and it is difficult to point them in the correct direction.

hotel pick up & drop off in Reykjavik, guided caving tour, flash light, gloves and helmet.
