Golden Circle Private tour
One of the best ways to experience Iceland is to explore the Golden Circle. There's a good reason why this tour is so popular. The 300 kilometer loop surrounds a landscape that resembles what our planet might have looked like long ago, before there were even trees. It's a place of profound, timeless beauty.
We like our caves to be in their raw natural state and without any installed platforms or lights. That's what we call a proper caving adventure. Leidarendi lava tube has all that and more. The approx. 1000 meter long lava tunnel formed around 2000 years ago during an eruption in the Sulfurmountains volcanic system.
