"iceland's Cavernous Depths"

Appearing as a beautifully bizarre subterranean landscape in the Leitahraun lava field, the Buri Cave is one of the oldest and the most captivating lava tubes in Iceland. Over several millenia, the Buri Cave has evoked a deep sense of wonder among all those who have dared to traverse its otherworldly depths. The cave spans more than a kilometer (0.62 miles), with its largest chamber measuring neary 17 meters (55 feet) in width. Jagged icicles, stalactites and stalagmites suspend from the ceiling like icy daggers, while swiftly cooling walls of the chamber are adorned with gaping craters. Once molded by fiery rivers of lava, these caves are home to frosty temperatures today, exemplifying a unique twist in nature's plot of fire and ice.
