You'll need to make your way to the starting point of each tour, so this is the perfect deal for those that want to enjoy a self-drive trip on Iceland's South Coast and throw in a few memorable activities along the way. Each tour is booked on a separate day, and they all fit in nicely with the driving route from Reykjavík heading east along the southern shore.
Start by snorkeling in the crystal clear waters of Silfra fissure as you drive the famous Golden Circle sightseeing route. Then, make your way down to Vík, on Iceland's South Coast, from where you will explore the enchanting ice caves by the volcano Katla. Hike across a glacier at the stunning Skaftafell Nature Reserve inside Vatnajökull National Park on your third day.

So don't wait! Enjoy the beautiful Icelandic nature with this exciting tour combo. Check availability by choosing a date.
You will meet your guide at the parking lot by Silfra fissure, where you will be suited up in a drysuit and given all necessary equipment such as a snorkeling mask and fins. The water in the fissure is glacial, so you'll also get a warm suit underneath your drysuit as well as neoprene gloves.
But due to the glacial element, you'll be rewarded with spectacular scenery and visibility of up to 328 feet (100 meters). You'll spend 30-40 minutes snorkeling through the azure blue waters, being carried by a light current through the rift.
After a short walk back to the parking lot, you'll be greeted with hot chocolate and cookies. After that, you're free to spend the rest of the day sightseeing.
The beautiful but bumpy route takes you through black sand dunes and past some impressive mountains before you reach the ice cap of Mýrdalsjökull glacier, which covers Katla volcano. Your guide will tell you stories of the volcano and the evil witch after which the volcano is named.
Once there, you'll be given crampons and a helmet, so you'll have stable footings on the ice. You'll then walk through the jet-black plains to the beautiful ice caves, which are constantly changing in size and shape. You'll undoubtedly see some white, black and blue ice as you explore a labyrinth of ice tunnels and caves of varying sizes. You'll learn about the glacier and the caves from your guide, so be sure to use this time to ask any questions as well.
These ice caves are the only natural glacier ice caves that can be visited both in summer and winter. After the tour, you'll be dropped off back in Vík, where you can continue your exploration of the South Coast.
The scenery is fantastic, with enormous white, blue, and black ice surrounded by mountains and sand fields. Visitors are sure to feel the connection with Mother Nature and be in awe of the unfathomable size of the glacier they're presented with. You'll see firsthand the constant changes of the environment, and witness impressive ice formations, blue ice in cracks and crevasses and learn about this frosty landscape from your experienced guide.
Note that Icelandic roads and pavements can be slippery in the wintertime. We recommend you bring shoes with slip-resistant soles or ice-grip shoe covers if you visit in the winter. The covers can be purchased in most supermarkets and gas stations around the country.
Please note that this combo requires you to meet on location, meaning you will have to make your own way to the meeting point for each tour.
