Snorkeling Silfra Day Tour

All year Daily About 5 hours Your hotel / guesthouse in Reykjavik Easy Min 12 years old

Enjoy floating weightlessly in the crystal clear water of Silfra Fissure, in this snorkeling tour located at Thingvellir National Park and admire the colorful world hidden below Iceland’s surface.

The Silfra snorkeling tour provides a very unique environment for a fantastic adventure, that will not be easily forgotten. On the tour, participants will be guided through the four parts of Silfra fissure, The Big Crack, Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral and Silfra Lagoon, all whilst floating between the Eurasian and American continental plates.

Silfra is filled with glacial water that has been trickling through underground lava for approximately 30 years and the water is therefore very clear, resulting in an exceptional visibility of around 100 meters. Snorkeling in the slight current of the freezing cold water and above astonishing colors give a unique perspective of Iceland that should not be missed.
