Raufarhólshellir is one of the longest and best-known lava tubes in Iceland. This is a great opportunity to see the path of an ancient volcanic eruption. The Leitahraun eruption carved out the landscape around 5200 years ago. Every winter, wondrous icicles appear at the mouth of the cave.
The tunnel stretches about 4500 ft (1360 m), 30 m wide with headroom up to 10 m high.

PART 2 – ATV ACTION – MINUTES FROM YOUR REYKJAVIK HOTEL
We pick you up from your Reykjavik hotel* or nearby bus stop – please check if your hotel is listed to a bus stop, and take the short journey to our quad biking base camp. There we’ll make sure you get all the safety and driving instruction you need. No experience necessary – so all are welcome.
Your quad bike tour takes you on a route along the lovely Lake Hafravatn, and a variety of terrains to have fun on. Then it’s onwards and upwards as you bike to the top of Hafrafell mountain – the high point of your journey. From there you should be able to see the Hengill mountain range, Iceland’s third most active volcanic system, together with Hellisheiði, the geothermal power plant for the capital area. A spectacular view over Faxaflói bay and the whole capital region, Bláfjöll mountain range and Esja, Reykjavik’s house mountain, is waiting for you.
