Join this tour to explore the glacial depths of Iceland’s best diving spot, the stunning Silfra Fissure in this snorkelling tour. This is the perfect opportunity for any explorers in Iceland looking to visit one of the most unique places in the world. You'll get your picture taken while swimming across the continents and receive them on your email immediately after your tour at no extra cost!
You will begin this tour at the designated meeting point, Silfra Parking lot by the marked van at Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Once here, you will take a short journey through the volcanic, moss-laden fields of the National Park, finally unloading at the Silfra car park. Here, you will listen as your friendly and experienced PADI Divemaster guide provides a quick safety briefing.
They will also hand out all of the necessary kits for snorkelling in Silfra, including neoprene hoods and gloves, a thermal drysuit and, of course, your own mask, snorkel and fins. This equipment will keep you buoyant throughout your time in the fissure, as well as offering a great deal of thermal protection against Silfra’s 2°C / 35°F glacial water.
Once you enter the water, you'll be immediately awestruck by the incredible shades of blue so prevalent in the fissure, as well as its jagged, algae strewn canyon walls.
Swimming further, you'll discover Silfra Hall (the fissure’s widest section) and the magnificent Silfra Cathedral (the fissure’s deepest section), as well as a gorgeous shallow oasis at the fissure’s end known as the “Real Blue Lagoon”.
