Combining caving and the Golden Circle tour in Iceland gives you a unique experience of the Icelandic nature. You will see the wonders of the Icelandic nature while driving through the country site and explore the underworld wonders of the Icelandic lava fields by visiting the cave, Leiðarendi.
Leiðarendi (e. The End of the Road) is a 900 meter long lava tube offering unique rock formations, such as stalactites and shelves. Some light crawling may be required yet Leiðarendi cave has a rather easy access to the underworld of Iceland. Now, let’s focus on the Golden Circle Tour part of this journey.
The Golden Circle tour is the most popular tourist route in Iceland. We will start at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Þingvellir, where Althing, was established around 930 and at Þingvellir the two continents, Europe and America, meet. We will also visit the geothermal active valley Haukadalur where among others the hot spring geysers Geysir and Strokkur are and check out the waterfall Gullfoss.
