Víðgelmir
The lava cave is the largest one in Iceland and one of the largest in the world. Therefore, it is a must to go with a guide into the cave for safety reasons. Evidence of human habitation has been found in the cave dating back to the Viking era.

Into the glacier
The man-made ice tunnel was first opened in 2015. It is around 300 meters long and takes about an hour to walk through with a guide. It is beautifully lit to make sure you do not miss a thing. They even have a chapel in there so if you want to tie the knot, this might be the perfect place. The cave is in Langjökull glacier, which is the second largest glacier in Iceland. It is possible to go on tours both from Reykjavik and Husafell.
