Horse riding and caving tour in Iceland - Lava and much more lava on this tour!

This is a great combination tour with horse riding and caving.

The trip starts with a magnificent lava caving tour in Iceland. The Lava cave is located in the middle of great lava fields near Reykjavik. It is a journey into Raufarhólshellir lava tube. When exploring this magnificent lava cave in Iceland you will discover the marvels inside the cave that the volcano created more than 2000 years ago. This is a trip that everyone will enjoy. Raufarholshellir cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and it is situated in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world. We will climb, crawl and walk on our travel beneath the surface.

After the caving tour, you are driven to downtown Reykjavík before immersing yourselves into the horse-riding tour.

The horse riding tour is on excellent riding paths through lava fields around Mt. Helgafell volcano. You will experience the Icelandic horse, surrounded by amazing nature right outside Reykjavík’s city center. Our friendly horses and specially trained guides will take you on a ride on excellent riding paths where you can experience the unique Icelandic horse while enjoying beautiful scenery full of lava fields and green hillsides.
