The Black Lava Tour - Horse Riding & Lava Caving Day Tour
Our tour starts with an adventurous horse riding tour. We will explore the lava surrounding Mt. Helgafell volcano and ride through lava fields and across beautiful hillsides to the old Kaldársel sheep corral or to Lake Hvaleyrarvatn. As we ride through this magical scenery you will see different formations in the rough lava and you might even be able to spot a troll or two. All riding is on excellent riding paths with the beautiful Bláfjöll Mountains towering above on the horizon.
After the horse riding tour we immerse ourselves into the velvet darkness of the Leiðarendi lava cave. Exploring this magnificent lava cave and discovering the marvels that the volcano created more then 2000 years ago is a trip that everyone will enjoy. Leiðarendi cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and it is situated in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world. We will climb, crawl and walk on our travel beneath the surface. When we emerge from the underworld we head for the Íshestar horse farm for lunch. This great adventure will show you the Icelandic lava fields from two very different angles, giving you a deep understanding of how Iceland was created and how the primeval forces of nature continue to shape it everyday!
