Overview

 While most people don't associate Iceland with snorkeling, the cool Nordic country actually offers plenty of underwater marvels -- you'll just need a wetsuit. With this experience, a professional guide will take you to Silfra, a fissure between North America and Europe in Thingvellir National Park that marks where the two continental plates are slowly drifting apart. You and your group will get a chance to spend around 40 minutes in the water before heading back to shore.
  • See where the continental plates are drifting apart
  • Snorkel under the watchful eye of a PADI-certified guide
  • All equipment and wetsuits are provided
  • Group tour limited to six participants to ensure personal service

Traveler Tips


  • "Make sure whatever camera you bring is in a flotation device." See review
  • "With the wet suit you wear just your bathing suit under and you get completely wet; the dry suit- you wear mainly what you have on, maybe just a base layer, and for the most part stay dry." See review

Absolutely the best experience ever!! Crystal clear water, excellent tour/snorkeling guide. Well organized. Photos taken by them but you can bring your GoPro. Make sure whatever camera you bring is in a flotation device.

This was by far my favorite experience in Iceland! Ivan was a great guide, super charming and funny, very helpful. I did not realize we had the choice between a wet suit and a dry suit, based on the description of this tour. With the wet suit you wear just your bathing suit under and you get completely wet; the dry suit- you wear mainly what you have on, maybe just a base layer, and for the most part stay dry. We went extreme and did the wet suit, everyone else on our tour did the dry. So worth it to do the wet suit!! You can dive deeper in the water and have more mobility, opposed to the dry where you are really only able to float. We stayed warmer being able to move around under the water. If you like the adrenaline rush of pushing yourself to do something that gets you out of your comfort zone, this was a great experience. The views from under water of the Silfra fissure were beautiful and pristine. Highly recommend.

This tour was amazing! The guide was knowledgeable and we were so grateful that he was such a patient guy. He helped us suit up and it was our first time snorkelling. He did a quick teaching on how to snorkel and what to take note. Honestly, he made it feel safe with his presence even in the waters. Silfra was beautiful and beyond what words can describe. The water tasted great and visibility was extremely clear. If i could, i will find this guide to bring me through this tour again : Very worth it! This tour became my NUMBER ONE BEST of all in Iceland :
