Experiencing the beautiful Thingvellir National park from under water is something you will never forget! Swim in the crystal clear Silfra fissure, between the tectonic plates of North America and Europe and enjoy indescribable views up to 100 meters ahead of you.
Snorkeling in Silfra Fissure was one of the highlights of our trip for sure. The water is so clear, you can see everything around you like you're above water. Our guide Steve was awesome and helped make our experience great. They make sure to do their best so you don't get wet, but I still got some water in my suit on one arm. Wasn't that bad! Do this tour!!
I’m so grateful for having participated in this amazing tour with my friends. Even if it was extremely cold we guard wonderful memories about this experience! We would love to thank our guides NEB and MATEJ for having been very patients, friendly and helpful. We definitely advise this unforgettable experience to everyone!
Everything was perfect on this tour. I was a bit nervous about the pick up arrangements since I was staying outside of Reykjavik but it was easy and I shouldn't have worried. The driver was on time and very friendly. The tour was terrific and I highly recommend it. I got the photos and they were unbelievable
Frequently Asked Questions
We provide dry suits so that your body stays dry, and you will also wear undergarments to keep you warm. We use high-quality neoprene dry suits from Waterproof International and O´Three. But it is good to know that there is always a small risk that water can enter the dry suit. This is not dangerous but can feel a little cold, so we recommend you bring a spare set of clothes and a towel, just in case. Kindly note that your hands and face will get wet, which is completely normal and not actually that cold.
Please wear or bring some long underwear and some warm socks. Wool or fleece is the best material to wear. You will be wearing your long underwear and warm socks under the dry suit.
We provide an undergarment and neoprene dry suit from Waterproof and 0’Three. We also provide a neoprene hood and neoprene wet gloves to protect your head and hands from the cold. You will also be given fins, mask and snorkel.
