Caving Adventure

Experience The Lava Tunnel

Our amazing tour allows you to explore the tunnel in an easy and enjoyable manner. The tunnel is in many places covered in large rocks and difficult to pass. A footbridge and several paths have been built over the roughest terrain making the standard tour accessible by all. Impressive lighting in this part of the tunnel highlights the changing colors and clearly shows the powerful volcanic activity that formed the tunnel.
