Litli-Björn cave

Litli-Björn or Vörðuhellir cave has two names because of it´s interesting history. Vörðuhellir cave was discovered in July 1987 by Björn Hróarsson. Three years later Björn Finnson discovered another cave in this area and named it Litli-Björn. The expedition in 1991 showed, that both caves are connected and it´s actually one cave. The cave is around 1100 meters long and it´s the longest cave in Thingvellir National Park. This ancient lava tube has not been changed by any geological events for more than 9000 years and gives a unique possibility to see how magma was flowing thousands years ago and what patterns it created during these years. The lava tube is hard to navigate and it is advisable to visit it with an experienced guide.
