Quick info

Tour name: Snorkeling Silfra & Golden Circle Combo

Age limit: 14 Years

Duration: 10 hours

Physical rating: Moderate

Pick up: Available from Reykjavík

Silfra is a crack in the earth between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. This remarkable fissure is filled with the glacial water and with over 100 meters visibility underwater, it is among the clearest bodies of water on our planet.

On the snorkeling tour we will dress you in a dry suit and guide you through the four parts of the Silfra fissure. Floating through Silfra's crystal clear water is an otherworldly experience; the near-freezing water, astonishing colors, and sensations of flying provide a very unique environment for liquid meditation that you will never forget.

On the Golden Circle route, we will stop in Thingvellir Park (where Silfra is also located), the impressive geothermal area called "Geysir," and the "golden waterfall" Gullfoss. The Silfra & Golden Circle tour is a wonderful way to get to know Iceland's power and beauty both above and below the surface.
