Golden Circle & Silfra Snorkelling Small Group Tour

This amazing adventure starts with a pick up from Reykjavik for a scenic drive to the geothermal area of Geysir, the home of the one and only Geysir. There the ground gurgles, bubbles and super heated water escapes from the ground with enormous force. Next we stroll down to Gullfoss, the undisputed queen of Icelandic waterfalls. Gullfoss is an amazing sight, the water rushes down three steps of lava layers with breathtaking power and grandeur. Thingvellir is the third place we visit. Thingvellir is a UNESCO world heritage site, and the original birthplace of the world 's oldest existing parliament. In addition, it is the place where the great tectonic plates of America and Europe meet. You will see the continental rift up close as you snorkel through the stunningly clear blue waters of Silfra.

The snorkelling is a relaxing but exotic trip in an environment most will only encounter in their dreams. Silfra fissure is one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets, an otherworldly scene that is world famous for its heavenly shades of blue. The crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float along with the lazy current. Although the water temperature is only around 2 degrees Celsius our super warm dry suits make this adventure possible.
