How Do We Proceed in the Lava Tunnel Tour?

Being well organized and much energetic you will head towards Lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir that is located 30 minutes drive from the capital.

You will observe how beautifully the columns of light have been formed near the lava tube ceiling in the entrance.
