The Cave People of Iceland | Laugarvatn - South

Travel back in time as you enter one of few caves in Iceland where people lived by choice, unlike outlaws, at the heart of unspoilt nature. The last inhabitants of this man-made cave left less than 100 years ago. Put yourself in their shoes listening how they raised livestock, grew potatoes, picked wild berries and sold pastries and Ptarmigans to travelers to make a living. An alternative stop on the traditional Golden Circle route, far from the crowds, and rich of history. Available all year round.
