Our extreme tour is for the adventure seeker and takes you all the way to the end of the tunnel where magnificent lava falls and other natural monuments await. Truly an unforgettable experience.
Please bear in mind that the extreme tour require traverse over a difficult terrain, including big rocks and boulders so a good balance and good physical health is required. Also, you will spend 3 – 4 hours in the cave, relying on the head torch only to navigate through this wonder-world underground so we do not recommend this tour for those that may suffer from some sort of claustrophobia. We do not recommend this tour for pregnant women. Passengers must be wearing hiking shoes with ankle support. If you are staying in the Reykjavík area we can provide a free pick up and drop off if needed. Please note that this pick up needs to take place outside the bus ban zone in downtown Reykjavik. The tour inside the cave takes approximately 3 - 4 hours. However, the total tour takes aprox. 5 - 6 hours including pick up and drop off.
Helmets, headlights, gloves and other specialized equipment provided. Hiking boots (with ankle support) and warm clothes are required and we recommend a backpack for water and snack. Bear in mind that there is usually some water dripping from the ceiling so wearing a water resistant or water proof jacket/clothes is good.
