Snorkeling in Iceland. Day Tours from Reykjavík - Silfra in Thingvellir / Snorkeling Silfra Day Tour

Day Tour Snorkelling at Silfra in Iceland 

You don't need to be a certified diver in order to experience water at its clearest! Snorkelling Silfra is for everyone who feels comfortable in water and it is a fantastic adventure for the whole family.
 
There are daily snorkelling trips to Silfra where you will float between two continental plates, surrounded by the astonishing clarity of the water and the mesmerising colours of this underwater world.
 
The snorkelling tour begins when we pick you up at your accommodation in Reykjavík and drive with you to Þingvellir National Park. During the one-hour drive, your guide will provide you with background information about the unique geology and cultural history of Silfra as well as the surrounding area of the UNESCO world heritage site – Þingvellir.
 
Upon arrival at Silfra, your guide will give you your dry suit and snorkelling equipment. Your guide will explain how to use this equipment and how to ensure that you will be warm and comfortable during your 30 to 40 minute snorkelling tour of Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral, and Silfra Lagoon.
 
During your snorkel, you will explore the four main parts of Silfra. You will float through Big Crack, Silfra's narrowest section and where the continental plates are so close you can almost touch them.
 The fissure then widens into Silfra Hall. Here the full spectrum of Silfra's colours and clarity become all the more apparent. At this point - if you look at just the right angle - you can see all the way to Þingvallavatn, over 150 m away. Near to the opening to Þingvallavatn, we will enter the Silfra Cathedral; as the depth reaches 23 m you feel like you are flying over the boulders and glacial silt. Your snorkel is finished in the endless visibility of Silfra Lagoon.
 
Make sure to drink some of the Silfra water while you are snorkelling! Who knows when you will be able to drink water so pure again.
