Half-day walking tour of the Leidarendi Cave in Iceland, near Reykjavik


Explore the legendary Leidarendi Cave near the capital of Iceland during a half-day walking tour with fully-certified guides at Adventure Vikings.


1/2 Day

Jan, Feb, Mar, Apr, May, Jul, Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec




  • Tour the lava tubes of Iceland close to the capital of Reykjavik.
  • Discover fascinating rock formations and natural underground architecture.
  • Benefit from having a fully-qualified guide accompanying you in the cave.


Lava tubes carve beneath the surface of Iceland like the mythical veins of the nation.

One of the most fascinating and scenic is the Leidarendi Cave, just a 30-minute drive from the capital, Reykjavik.

Leidarendi offers a portal to the underworld where you’ll discover lava fields 900 meters long and feature spectacular rock formations, from the jagged stalagmites to the splash stalactites.

Razor-like rock teeth hang above your head while you wind through the tube.

Leidarendi translates as The End of the Road, and refers to the remains found of a lamb when the cave was first discovered 2 decades ago.

The actual cave is shaped like a circle that receives no light at all. You’ll be met in pitch black. So we’ll gear up with a helmet and headlight to navigate ourselves.

Discover the wonders of the underworld while walking, with some sections requiring you to crawl. Yet the access is easy and ideal.

Icelandic ancestors once feared the lava caves, which were dark, dangerous and populated with sharp tooth-like daggers and home to many menacing myths.

Get in touch now to reserve your place on a fascinating half-day walking tour of Leidarendi Cave in Iceland to discover stunning rock formations and chilling legends.

I was looking for a local guide for a hike I was planning and came across Explore-Share. They seemed to have good reviews and so decided to give them a try. The experience was very positive and completely happy with their service. I will be using them again for next trip.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.

Hello! I have been thoroughly impressed by the service and assistance that explore-share have provided the past couple years in helping to plan my trip to the High Tatras in Poland. I really appreciated the flexibility that they provided in allowing me to rearrange my trip twice owing to covid. They were responsive and communicative throughout. This trip was part of my Stag weekend celebrations and explore-share connected me with an outstanding guide in the form of Marcel - he was an excellent recommendation and we really enjoyed our guided hike in the High Tatras with him. Marcel was an outstanding professional, placed a high focus on preparing well and staying safe, and was also a great guy! Highly recommend. Many thanks and best wishes - Richard

Our first time with Explore-Share. An absolutely fantastic experience from start to finish. Extremely good value, very well organised with attention to detail. We travel widely and this has by far been the best of experiences. Well done to all concerned. We are already looking at booking another trip!
