The Cave Explorer hellaferð. (English below)

Hellaferð í Víðgelmi er einstök upplifun og við allra hæfi en aðgengi hefur verið stórbætt með tilkomu göngupalla.

Víðgelmir er oft sagður vera konungur íslenskra hella og ekki að ástæðulausu. Eins og nafnið gefur til kynna er Víðgelmir afar stór eða u.þ.b. 148.000m3. Þessi undraveröld hefur að geyma litríkar hvelfingar, 1100 ára gamlar hraunmyndanir og árstíðabundinn ís sem setur skemmtilegan svip á umhverfið.

The Cave Explorer Tour

Take a guided tour into the mighty Víðgelmir lava tube with the aid of our easy-access walkway, and state of the art feature lighting. This is a trip that the whole family can enjoy.
Caves are often dark, tight and uninviting places; however this is not the case on The Cave Explorer tour!

What used to be slow travelled, rugged terrain is now easy and enjoyable. Thanks to our signature walkway caving just became family friendly. Leading from one great hall to the next the path is slightly lit revealing the magical underworld.
The stunning beauty of Víðgelmir lava cave lies within the amazing colours and rock formations that used to hide in the dark – not anymore! With feature lighting at selected locations this impressive cave can now be enjoyed in all its glory.
Join our experienced guides and learn about the unique geology and impressive history at Víðgelmir. The Cave Explorer tour offers the very best of caving, the ease, the light and the dark!
