Hot Spring Snorkel and Lava Caving Combo
Snorkeling in bubbling hot springs is usually impossible as the water is far too hot, but the hot springs at the bottom of Lake Kleifarvatn provide us with the opportunity to do just that!
Lake Kleifarvatn is hidden within a stunning volcanic landscape just 30 minutes outside of Reykjavík. Standing at the lake shore and changing into your dry suit, you will probably catch a whiff of the sulfur emitted from nearby hot springs and the total silence will let you forget that you are anywhere near civilization.
We will then make our way to the fantastic lava tube called Leiðarendi where you will descend into the extensive systems of lava caves. These caves, or tubes, were created during volcanic eruptions as molten lava flowed while also cooling at the surface. These tubes now form an incredible underground world and are safe for exploration. You will be surrounded by fantastically odd rock formations and your flashlight will bring the phenomenal display of colors to light.
