Posted on May 5, 2009 by

The Icelandic territory and its numerous lavic and ice caves may offer a unique experience throughout the year to people that have the explorer spirit. The travel agencies Iceland Total, Iceland Excursions and Ultima Thule organize trips –accessible by everybody- to lavic caves that developed more than 10.000 years ago, they also supply the required equipment.
For more demanding exploring spirits, it is possible and strongly suggested, to contact the Icelandic Speleological Society that may suggest the best caves to visit and also offer the essential support to organize the trip.
The fabulous ice caves, that developed beneath the glaciers because of the downflow of the geothermal water, may be visited only by experienced spelaeogists that have professional equipment.
