- 9 Hours
- 9 Hours
- On request
Explore the amazing ways that geothermal and volcanic activity has shaped Iceland's landscape! Journey underwater and deep underground for the most unusual views of what happens when the ferocious forces underground meet the surface of our world. First snorkel through hot springs at the bottom of Lake Kleifarvatn with its stunning volcanic landscape just 30 minutes outside of Reykjavik. Don't let the term "hot springs" fool you though. The lake is still very cold and you will put on a dry suit in order to stay warm in this remote lake.
You then make your way to the fantastic lava tube called Leitharendi where you descend into the extensive systems of lava caves. These caves, or tubes, were created during volcanic eruptions as molten lava flowed while also cooling at the surface. These tubes now form an incredible underground world and are safe for exploration.
