Try out something utterly otherwordly with us and join this tour for a once in a lifetime adventure snorkelling in Silfra. Floating through the clear waters with mesmerizing visibility is incredible in itself. On top of it, you will get the unique chance to snorkel between the European and North American tectonic plate. Snorkelling between the tectonic plates is an experience you can only find in Iceland, so make sure to make this tour a bucket list item when planning your trip to this incredible island.

The Silfra fissure is located in a giant lava field with deep blue clear waters that have up to 150m visibility in this subaquatic paradise with supernatural shades of blue. The Silfra fissure is located in the Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and place of the first Icelandic parliament, Alþingi, in 930 CE. Our highly skilled guides will welcome you into your Snorkeling adventure, the Silfra fissure has often been rated one of the top ten dive sites worldwide. This makes it a must-do activity for many travellers visiting Iceland. The crystal clear waters of the fissure have been filtering through the lava for up to 200 years. Snorkelling in this area will allow you to experience the uniqueness of Iceland while floating and feeling utterly calm. Some have even called the experience "liquid meditation".

We will supply you with all the necessary equipment and provide you with a detailed introduction into snorkelling, but please note that you will need to be able to swim to participate in the tour. Please also take note of our snorkelling handbook and read it thoroughly before the trip, to be able to prepare yourself.

This is an unforgettable experience that is well worth adding into your Iceland itinerary.
