What to expect


We will pick you up in Reykjavík and drive you to Thingvellir National Park. During the one-hour drive, your guide will provide you with background information about the unique geology and cultural history of Iceland and Silfra as well as the surrounding area of the UNESCO world heritage site.

Upon arrival at Silfra, your guide will give you your dry suit and snorkeling equipment. Your snorkel guide will explain how to use this equipment and how to ensure that you will be warm and comfortable during your tour. The guide will help you with putting all the gear on and you can change in our heated Changing Van. We recommend wearing long underwear and thick socks.

When ready, you will walk 5 minutes to Silfra and start your 30 to 40 minute snorkeling tour of Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral, and Silfra Lagoon.

After snorkeling in the cold water, we warm you up with hot cocoa and cookies.

We had a fantastic trip with Thomas as our guide. He was very knowledgeable on the area and even let us stop to take pictures on the drive up. The snorkelling is something ill never forget being able to see so far through the water. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone visiting Iceland.
