Plunge into the crystal clear waters of the Silfra Fissure, then dive into an immersive virtual flight over Iceland in this incredible four-hour tour. This trip shows you the beauty of Iceland in two different ways, giving you a unique and unforgettable experience.

You’ll begin the day in Thingvellir National Park, where you’ll meet your professional guide to learn about the basics of snorkeling. The waters of Silfra are icy cold, so you’ll need to be well-equipped and be ready with warm clothes under your suit.

You can choose a drysuit if you’d like to keep warm and stay on the surface, but if you want to free-dive and see the underwater features up close, you’ll need to use the wetsuit. If you need help deciding, your guide can help you choose.

Once ready, you’ll jump in and explore the wonders underneath. The Silfra fissure was created by tectonic plates pulling apart and filling with the water from the Langjokull glacier, which, after filtering through lava fields for decades, resulted in crystal clear waters.

Whether floating on the surface or diving right in, the view that greets you will be incredible. The clarity lets you see in detail all the canyons and rock formations underwater, while the sun's rays refracting in the waves give an ethereal lighting effect on the scenery.

Clear waters are also perfect for some spectacular photography underneath the waves. Your guide can assist you with taking stunning photos to capture the magical views underwater before finally exiting and relaxing with some hot chocolate after an eventful swim.

After enjoying a dip in Silfra, you’ll drive back to Reykjavik, where you’ll go on a state-of-the-art virtual flight at FlyOver Iceland. This unique attraction straps you into a ride that simulates flying across skies with a spherical screen giving you an unobstructed view.

There are pre-ride events to prepare you before you take off with your two virtual guides who will ignite your imagination with stories about Iceland. As you’re soaring through the landscape, the ride blasts you with wind, mist, and scents to give you a fully immersive experience.

Once the flight is over, you can visit the souvenir shops outside and look at photos from the ride. There’s also a cafe where you can relax before heading back out to Reykjavik to finish your day.

Whether it’s a physical excursion or using cutting-edge technology to see the sights, this unique tour lets you experience Iceland both ways and is something you don’t want to miss. Check availability now by choosing a date.
