Lava tube cave searching tours

Where you become an explorer of unknown territories

At Extreme Iceland, we plan lava tube cave search and exploring tours for groups of all sizes. Large portions of Icelandic lava fields have not been thoroughly explored by speleologists so there is a good chance you may happen to discover a brand new lava tube on your own.


Duration: Flexible

Available: On request

Included: Hotel pick up & drop off in Reykjavik, guided caving tour, flash light, gloves and helmet.

Bring with you: Warm clothes, sturdy shoes.

Tour Description

On these tours participants can put themselves in the footprints of the explorers of an earlier age.  Maybe you will be the lucky enough to be the first human being to set foot in an ancient lava tube.

Searching for caves in Iceland

We cannot promise you that we will discover a new lava tube on every tour. However, on longer trips where more thorough searches are made, it is likely that the group will find new and unknown lava tubes … even really large ones.

Extreme Iceland offers tours to almost every area in Iceland that has a lava field large enough to be worth exploring. Our tour guides are all speleologists with fundamental knowledge in the flow of molten magma and the constructions of lava tubes.

On such tours we are most likely to be navigating areas that are seldom visited and this means the group is more likely to experience something new and exciting.

A week long tour where we trek the open lava plains and the fathoms of lava tubes below is an amazing adventure in itself; not to mention the feeling of maybe being the first human on earth to explore a certain lava tube.
