Staff trip to the lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir

The other day we went for a secret trip – nobody knew where we are going! We were told to bring a sturdy shoes, a sweater and be ready for an adventure! After not so long ride we arrived to a parking lot by the lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir.

From about one year the tunnel is accessible via guided tours only. I’ve been there twice 2 years ago exploring the tunnel all by myself and I was quite sure nothing is gonna surprise me this time! I could not be more wrong. I was there during the summer time, and during the winter the tunnel changes into a fairy tale with thousands of icicles! Add to this a great illumination and well-prepared guide who tell you everything you need to know about the place, and it no longer looks like a place where I’ve been before.

During the summer:

During the winter:

The Standard Lava Tunnel Tour lasts about an hour and the ticket is 6.400 kr. Visit their website to learn more: https://thelavatunnel.is/

If you plan exploring the lava tunnel during the summer (when you don’t need other equipment than a sturdy shoes and a flashlight), you may want to consider going to Arnarker cave, which is only 10 km from Raufarhólshellir and is free to visit.

The lava tunnel Raufarhólshellir is located just 14 km from Hafið Bláa, and Arnarker – 20 km. If you are interested to see the beautiful icicles – hurry up, summer is coming!

We would be happy to tell you about other interesting places nearby when you visit us!

Winter opening hours

On Thursday, our winter opening hours went into effect. The days are getting shorter, the darkness is coming sooner, and there are fewer hours in the day to enjoy our wonderful view. So we are closing earlier as well. We are open 12:30-18:00 Thursday-Monday, closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays. We are, however, always open for groups and special events. Don’t hesitate to contact us if you would like to eat or stop with a northern lights tour to offer coffee and baked goods to your guests.

Opening 23. February!

Dear guests, Hafið Bláa will be opening again on Thursday, 23. February. We will be open 5 days a week (closed Tuesdays and Wednesdays), offering up fantastic views of the sea and volcanoes with your meal or coffee. Our specialties are seafood, including fish and langoustine/lobster, and homemade cakes. New in February, we are also offering BBQ ribs! We look forward to welcoming you.

Closed for the season

Dear guests, Hafið Bláa will be closed from 26 November-22 February for winter. During this period, we will be open for groups only and by special arrangement. We will re-open with normal hours on 23 February. Happy holidays!

Summer is over, which means northern lights season is upon us!

It also means new opening hours. Starting 1. October, we will be open 12:30-17:00 Monday and Thursday and 12:30-21:00 Friday-Sunday. If you’d like to come outside these hours with a group, feel free to contact us.
