Into the Cave
Visit Iceland’s largest lava cave, Víðgelmir.
Iceland’s natural wonders aren’t limited to glaciers, geysers and waterfalls. The underground has much to offer and lava caves are a unique and adventurous way to spend an afternoon in Iceland. The west Iceland village of Reykholt is home to the Víðgelmir lava cave, which offers visitors amazing colors and rock formations. The Cave is a family owned and operated business based out of the historic farm of Fljótstunga in West Iceland. The region has much to offer as it is close to the Golden Circle and the drive to the site rivals the beauty of the South Coast.
Some may think that exploring a cave can be a dark, tight and uncomfortable experience. But, the owners recently fixed lights at selected locations and installed a walkway, allowing visitors to experience the natural surrounding in a comfortable manner while maintaining the fragile nature of the environment. The family has taken great care to open up the region and improve access and safety. Stop by for a tour of The Cave on your next trip to West Iceland.
