Overview

Snorkel in between two continents at one of the top diving sites in the planet! Silfra is located in Iceland’s National Park, Thingvellir. It is a fissure that was formed by the divergent tectonic drift of the Eurasian and North American plates.

What makes Silfra exceptionally unique is not only its geological significance, but it is also world-renowned for its crystal clear, fresh glacial water. This is constantly fed with a steady stream of 100m+ visibility drinkable water that creates the unique bio-diversity in this fissure.

We are the only operator in Silfra offering both drysuit and wetsuit together. This means multiple people in your group can book their preferred option.

We include photos as standard so you don't have the hassle of handling your own camera, but you are welcome to bring one! Our guides have all been doing this for years and know the best spots to take pictures of you and your group.

Inclusions

  • Underwater photos
  • PADI Divemaster/ Instructor or equivalent
  • Hot chocolate
  • Use of Snorkelling equipment

What to expect

Itinerary

Meet us at Thingvellir National Park, about 50 km from Reykjavik. Once you have met your PADI divemaster certified guide, he or she will be going through the procedure and safety measures of your tour. After, you will put on your gear and head to an exotic underwater canyon/fissure, Silfra, created as the continental plates drift apart at a rate of about 2 cm per year. Silfra is a freshwater fissure where you can see at least 100 meters ahead of you. The water here is so clear and pristine it feels like flying. The approximate time in the water is around 40 minutes. Before leaving you'll have a delicious hot chocolate prepared by your guide for the day.

We do have the option to pre-book a wetsuit on another listing. Booking a wetsuit is recommended for people who want to have the chance to dive down or who are scuba divers without the required certifications for the scuba dive. For the wetsuit it is recommended that you are a confident swimmer, if you are not then the drysuit is best for you. To cater to everyone's desires we are the only company that has wetsuits and drysuits allowing them to be in the same group.

Vero was a great tour guide. She made the experience very easy and enjoyable. She took lots of photos throughout the snorkel.

Clear water is an understatement!! This tour did not disappoint and the dry suit kept us dry and relatively warm in 35 degree water. Louis and Tom were amazing and enjoyable! Tom was our guide and he made sure we were comfortable and well taken care of. Would highly recommend to anyone……including...

Fantastic time - Louis and his colleague made us feel very at ease and safe. The tour is short (a lot of time is spent getting in the correct gear) but stunning, and the guides are both informative and have great humour. If visiting I recommend LAYERS!! Overall great fun, highly recommend!

What an amazing day! We were with Vero for our tour and was such a great trip! Can't thank enough for the fun and extraordinary experience it was at Silfra last week! The drysuits are in great condition with no issues whatsoever. Really good kit and equipment offered and the hot drink at the end...
