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 am very pleased with Explore-Share! This was my first international climb, and the communication and response time were great. Herbie is a very skilled guide and very efficient. The entire booking process & payment was smooth. I will definitely use Explore-Share again. Thank you.



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.



Easy to set up and find the perfect trip. Informative site that is easy to use. Guides are all great to work with and communicate all arrangements needed. As simple as can be!



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.
