Snorkelling Silfra & Lava Caving Day Tour

Based on 1 traveller reviews

On this trip you will snorkel through one of the world’s most fantastic snorkel and dive sites, Silfra. Silfra has astoundingly clear water (over 100 meters), and is a crack between the Eurasian and North American continental plates. After snorkelling, we will explore lava caves that were created thousands of years ago and are full of utterly weird and wonderful rock formations as well as a splattering of amazing colours.

Marvel over Iceland's geological wonders from two unique perspectives. Check availability by choosing a date.

This day was amazing. I've seen a lot of beautiful water, but nothing that looks like Silfra. Even through all of the layers, you start to feel the cold near the end. The hot chocolate is much appreciated! The lava cave portion was extremely informative. Our guide knew a TON, and happily answered my sister's nearly 500 questions. Once in the cave you do need to be willing to squeeze through some smaller spaces.
