We will pick you up with a super-jeep and an expert guide at the wheel ready to make the night exceptional.
We start by exploring the hidden worlds of the volcanic nature. Walking down into the lava cave and discovering the marvels that volcanic activity has created in the past is a trip that will amaze you. During your underworld adventure, you will have the chance to witness the magical rock formations left behind by the last volcanic eruption. During the winter, the cave is likely to be filled with glistening icicles of all shapes and sizes, making it a truly beautiful spectacle.
After our underground adventure, we will drive to Fjorubordid restaurant in Stokkseyri village, where a gourmet lobster dinner awaits us. At the seashore, the giant langoustine makes appointments with mermaids and land clubbers. He waves his large claws, attracting the desire to be in the company of starfish and lumpfish.
After dinner, we will then start the chase of the elusive Northern Lights (Winter months). On cloudless winter evenings, we may be able to spot this beautiful natural phenomenon. Vivid and bright, the dancing northern lights in the Arctic skies are truly an unforgettable sight! Be warned though, as they are very shy!
During the summer months, we will enjoy a quiet moment at the local beach, drinking in the energy of the midnight sun. On the way home, the super jeep driver will get off the beaten path, adding a kick to the end of the tour!

What do I need to bring
When you are visiting a lava cave, you will be provided with all the necessary safety equipment such as helmets and lights. What you need to bring along are good hiking shoes. At the entrance of the cave during winter time, you will need a good base layer, we would suggest a warm wool layer. For a second layer, we recommend hiking pants and a good sweater. And for an outer layer, we suggest a warm pair of gloves and a hat, plus a waterproof jacket since sometimes it drips from the ceiling of the cave. Keep in mind that the temperature inside the cave is around 0 – 4 degrees Celcius (32 – 38 Fahrenheit), and it is a good shelter from the weather so there is no need to dress up for extreme conditions as if you would be going on a glacier hike.
During summertime, there is no need for three layers for your legs, one or two layers are good, but keep in mind that while it might be warmer when entering the cave it is still the same temperature at the deep end, all year round (3-4°C).
