5. Explore a Lava Tunnel
Get up close and personal with the history of how Iceland was formed when you descend into a subterranean playground. Even novice spelunkers can enjoy the winding lava tunnels and the twisted rock formations left behind by raging volcanoes, deep underground. The Leidarendi lava tube, easily accessible from the capital, is nearly half a mile long with certain stretches that will force you to get on your knees and crawl. These passageways were formed when surface lava hardened, yet liquid lava raged on in tubes below—a path you’ll find yourself following. ($75; extremeiceland.is)
