Go snorkelling in a drysuit with an experienced guide through the pristine glacial waters of Silfra in Iceland; round-trip transfer from Reykjavík included!

Snorkelling is an easy and fun way to explore the underwater treasures of Silfra fissure. It is situated between two continents, meaning that you’ll have the incredible experience of floating above centuries old caves formed by earthquakes as you glide peacefully between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. This drysuit snorkelling tour of Silfra is suitable for complete beginners to more experienced snorkelers and is the best way to immerse yourself in the stunning nature of Iceland.

On the morning of your tour, you’ll be picked up in Reykjavík to begin the journey across Iceland’s spectacular landscape towards the world-famous Þingvellir National Park. This rift valley is a UNESCO World Heritage Listed site of both cultural and historical significance, being the location of where Iceland’s first parliament convened in the year 930 AD. It is here that you will find evidence of why we call this the ‘Land of Fire and Ice’. The area bears the marks of thousands of years of continental drift, which has resulted in geological formations as far as the eye can see.

Upon arrival at Þingvellir, you’ll make your way directly to Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland. When you reach your dive site, you’ll be introduced to your PADI Divemaster instructor, who will take you through a comprehensive safety briefing. This tour includes the use of snorkelling equipment, complete with drysuit, for a warm and comfortable experience. Once you have donned your gear, you’ll slide into the crystal clear water of Silfra for an exhilarating adventure that you’ll never forget.

Relax and enjoy the experience as you drift along slowly with the current, through glacial meltwater from the Langjökull glacier. At 2-4°C (36–39 °F), the water here is some of the clearest on Earth, having made its way through porous lava rock where it is filtered before flowing into Silfra itself. You’ll have the chance to peer beneath the surface of the water as you glide along at a leisurely pace. Be mesmerised by the world below, as you pass by unique plant life and colourful algae, clinging to the jagged and rocky canyon walls.

After surfacing from the depths of Silfra, spend the afternoon wandering through Þingvellir National Park. There are many walking trails which will take you through the maze of rifts and fissures for a picturesque and tranquil end to the day.

A visit to Iceland is a once-in-a-lifetime experience, so make it count! Spend a blissful day on this drysuit snorkelling tour exploring Silfra fissure and receive underwater photos to cherish upon completion. Check availability by choosing a date.
