Þrihnukagígur Lava Cave (Optional)

Þríhnúkagígur is a dormant volcano in the volcanic system of Brennisteinsfjöll near Reykjavík, Iceland. Covering a 3,270 square metres area and a depth of 213 meters, it has not erupted in the past 4000 years. It was discovered in 1974 by cave explorer Árni B Stefánsson, and opened for tourism in 2012

Raufarhólshellir Lava Cave (Optional)

Raufarhólshellir is the fourth-longest lava tube in Iceland, at 1,360 metres (4,460 ft) long, with a typical height of at least 10 metres (33 ft) and width up to 30 metres (98 ft).[1] The cave has multiple skylights, or holes in the ceiling, under which snow accumulates. Iceland Route 39 crosses over the cave at a point where it is about 15 meters in diameter. The cave hosts microbial mats containing a variety of microorganisms, including actinomycetota and acidobacteriota. 
The land containing the cave is owned by the Seventh-day Adventist Church and rented to a company that operates the guided tours.

Geothermal area at Seltun / Krysuvik

This interesting geothermal area has got two names; it is either called Seltúnshverir (the hot springs at Seltún) or Krýsuvíkurhverir (the hot springs at Krýsuvík). The hot springs and mud pools are right by the road, making this geothermal area very easily accessible
