Silfra Snorkelling tour

Come with us on a snorkelling tour in Silfra rift (A UNESCO world heritage site) at Thingvellir national park. The experience will blow your mind. There is a 100+ visibility in the water and the colours will make this experience worth it.

Swim between two continent and go snorkelling in one of the world's top dives. The crystal clear water of the Silfra fissure in the heart of Thingvellir National Park.

When you are in Silfra you are in one of the clearest water in the world, you can drink it while you snorkel through the cracks, hence the name Silfra (silver)

Also, Iceland being the only part of the north atlantic ridge above sea level and being ripped apart 2-3 centimetres every year, being in Silfra you are between the two continental plates and should be able to touch both of them at the same time. And at the end of the Silfra rift we go into the Silfra Lagoon wich was called "the Blue Lagoon" in the old days, long before the one we know today came into existence. Trust us, you will know why when you see it.

Silfra is one of the top scuba/ snorkel/ freedive places in the world, but the landscape surrounding it is not that bad either. The oldest parliament in the world was founded here, For Game of Thrones fans, you have "The Wall" in your eyesights.

We offer only wetsuits on this tour. We use the best 7mm two piece open cell freediving suits possible so being cold is not a problem. But you can move and even dive down

Water is always 2-4 C° (36–39 °F) which gives us the visibility.

All necessary equipment is provided. Pickups are from hotels in Reykjavik or you can meet your guides at Thingvellir Information Center.
