Description

Immerse yourself in the captivating wonders of Iceland's natural beauty with this Golden Circle & snorkeling tour, including complimentary underwater photos. Embark on this remarkable journey to witness the mesmerizing Silfra Fissure within Thingvellir National Park—a must-do experience for adventurers seeking a unique underwater exploration.

Your day kicks off when you are picked up from the designated pick-up point in Reykjavik. Upon reaching the UNESCO World Heritage site of Thingvellir National Park, your skilled certified PADI Dive Master will provide essential safety instructions before you gear up for your snorkeling adventure. 

You'll be fully prepared to embrace the glacier water, equipped with neoprene hoods, gloves, thermal undersuits, drysuits, masks, snorkels, and fins. These specialized gears ensure both buoyancy and warmth, allowing you to float in the enchanting waters of the Silfra Fissure effortlessly.

As you glide through this underwater marvel, you'll find vivid shades of blue and the delicate aquatic flora that adorn the canyon walls.

While snorkeling, you'll have a unique chance to traverse continents, swimming between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates—a defining feature of Thingvellir. Your journey will lead you through Silfra Hall, the widest segment of the fissure, and into the awe-inspiring depths of Silfra Cathedral. The final stretch reveals a shallow oasis reminiscent of the famed Blue Lagoon, a true aquatic paradise.

Emerging from the water, warm up with a delightful cup of hot chocolate in the company of your amiable guide. As the tour concludes, relish the memory as you receive a collection of free GoPro underwater photos delivered to your email—a cherished keepsake of your Silfra adventure.

Venturing further, the tour encompasses captivating destinations that capture Iceland's essence. Start at the historic Thingvellir National Park,  where nature and history converge. This boasts a rich heritage as the original site of Iceland's first parliament, Althingi, established in 930 AD. 

The vastness of Thingvellir's rift valley is humbling, and as you wander through its rocky terrain, you'll be transported to an ancient world where Vikings once gathered to make laws.

Next on your journey is the majestic Gullfoss Waterfall, a true testament to the raw beauty of Iceland's landscape. As you approach, the thundering sound of the cascading waters will fill your ears, and the sheer power of the falls will leave you in awe.

Feel the mist on your face as you gaze upon the rushing waters of the Hvita River plummeting into the deep, narrow gorge below. Gullfoss is a reminder of the untamed forces that have shaped this island for millennia.

Your adventure continues to the Geysir Geothermal Area, home to the famous Strokkur geyser. As you wander through this geothermal wonderland, you'll witness the Earth's geothermal energy in action. 

Strokkur erupts regularly, sending plumes of hot water and steam shooting into the sky. You can feel the ground tremble just before each eruption, a thrilling reminder of the Earth's restless power beneath your feet.

Following these fantastic encounters with Iceland's natural wonders, you'll return to Reykjavik.

Don't miss the chance to be part of this incredible tour. Immerse yourself in Iceland's geological wonders, witness its stunning waterfalls, and marvel at the geothermal phenomena that make this island nation truly unique. Check availability now by selecting your preferred date.
