1 Day

All year


All Levels


  • See the magical Icelandic scenery on horseback
  • Explore the surreal Leiðarendi Cave
  • Learn about Iceland's fascinating geological history


Join one of our experienced guides on an exploration of the spectacular Leiðarendi Cave. Plus, enjoy a horseback riding adventure to remember.

The horseriding portion of this trip takes place on the terrain of the Laxnes Horse Farm. We’ll ride, at a gentle pace, across undulating hills, pass fantastic waterfalls and see the beautiful Icelandic scenery.

Then, we’ll explore the cave on foot without the horses. Leiðarendi Cave is actually a lava tube that was formed following an eruption thousands of years ago. Stretching out across 900 meters, with twists and turns and wild-looking rock formations, it’s fascinating to explore.

The walk itself in the cave is relatively easy. So is the access to this magical underground world. However, you may have to crawl in some small sections due to the narrow passageways. The ground underneath can also be uneven.

When we’re in the cave you’ll be able to marvel at all the different colors. These colors come from the many different minerals deposited in the earth from the eruption.

This trip is a great way to enjoy and learn about the scenery, geology and history of Iceland.

We’ll be happy to answer any questions you have, so get in touch today and get one step closer to experiencing the best of Iceland.

While you’re here why not check out our awesome hot springs experience in Reykjadalur.

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!
