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. Once in the tunnel, the underworld opens up in the beam of your headlamp with colors ranging from bright yellow to purple and read. You can walk upright most of the time but there are low ceilings in parts of the cave where we bend down, squat or even plank our way through. With utmost care, we move along the tube seeing both the lava straws hanging from the ceiling above us and the lava drip stalagmite up close by the wall of the tunnel. It‘s another world and it is easy to forget the outside world for the approx 1 hour-long tour.
