​Ice Cave Tour by Vatnajokull Glacier | Departure from Jokulsarlon

Join this tour to experience the extraordinary beauty of an ice cave in winter. With a local guide, you'll explore hidden spaces on a glacier hike near Vatnajökull, the largest glacier in Europe. This is the highest rated ice cave tour in Iceland, so book now to secure your spot. Just choose the time which fits your schedule and make your way to Jökulsárlón Café, beside the famous glacier lagoon in Southeast Iceland. You can make a day of it, and enjoy the glacier lagoon area, taking pictures of the floating icebergs. Reserve early as this tour is very popular and is likely to sell out. At the start of the tour, you will drive with your group to the cave which has been specially chosen for its dazzling structure. The drive itself is exciting, as you will be traveling in a modified monster truck. When you get there, you'll have a short walk through the landscape to the cave where you can learn about the mighty Vatnajokull glacier from your knowledgeable guide. Thick socks and warm layers will come in handy today. Ice caves are rare phenomena that form naturally. The ice caves are a long time in the making. Each fall, after the meltwater of spring has begun to freeze, local guides from the area hunt for new ice caves. This is why the location of the caves change every year and every ice cave is unique and newly formed.  The structure and condition of the caves can vary greatly each year. Our guide decides which cave to visit every day depending on safety and weather conditions.  There is extremely limited availability for this popular tour.

Snaefellsnes National Park | Small Group Day Tour

Jump aboard this captivating tour to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Sometimes called ‘Iceland in Miniature’ due to its vast diversity of landscapes, this is the perfect trip for those who seek to capture the true spirit and beauty of this incredible island. This is a small-group minibus tour for a maximum of 19 people, allowing for a comfortable and personal experience. You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík in the morning, then head north-west. While the immediate surrounding scenery will be of rolling farmlands, it will diversify as soon as you reach the peninsula. You will cruise between the beautiful, rocky coast and a long range of mountains to your first destination: the Snæfellsjökull subglacial volcano. Often called ‘the crown jewel of the peninsula’, Snæfellsjökull is a magnificent, cone-shaped volcano adorned with ice throughout the year. Its beauty has inspired writers and artists for centuries, most notably Jules Verne; his novel ‘A Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ is set here. After admiring this incredible natural landmark, you will head to the charming farm of Ytri-Tunga to see its resident seal colony. These creatures, which spend hours hauling out on the shore, are a pleasure to observe, as they lazily sun themselves with little concern for those observing them. Animal-lovers would do well to keep an eye on the ocean around here too, as Snæfellsnes is one of the best places in the country to spot orcas from the shore. You will next see the charming villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, which are said to be steeped in magic and folklore. They are located in a lovely coastal area, which is dotted with beautiful rock formations and dramatic cliffs. The most notable of these geological formations are the two basalt columns called Lóndrangar, so tall and striking that many have compared them to a castle. Near these, you will have a chance to wander along a gorgeous black beach, Djúpalónssandur, the cliffs of which are home to many nesting seabirds. At Djúpalónssandur, you’ll find a curiosity on the beach: four large, smooth stones. They are ‘lifting stones’, once used to measure the strength of fishermen who worked and lived along the coasts here. Your guide will tell you what each was called, and you can see how well you would have risen to the challenge of moving them. Your final stop will be at the most photographed mountain in all of Iceland. Kirkjufell rises alone from a sea of green hills and wildflowers, surrounded by trickling rivers and little waterfalls; it is without a doubt one of the most scenic areas in the country. You’ll want to have your camera on hand when exploring this beautiful feature. The Snæfellnes peninsula is one of the country’s most beautiful spots. Don’t miss your opportunity to see 'Iceland in Miniature'. Check availability by choosing a date.

Drysuit Snorkeling Tour in Silfra - FREE Photos

Dive into this drysuit snorkelling tour of Silfra fissure in Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Conducted at the edge of Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland, this tour is sure to enthral and mesmerise you! You'll have an unforgettable view down into the depths below, thanks to the silvery water which gives Silfra its name. The water is so clear, you'll be able to see as far as 100 m (almost 330 ft) down, to the shadowy caves that are formed by centuries of earthquakes widening the fissure and releasing the pressures of the earth's crust. It's the only place on earth where you can swim between a meeting place of worlds: the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Witness the strength and power of the land as you drift on the current. Plants resembling troll hair grow on the rocks, floating in the water, and you'll see many shades of green and yellow algae. Silfra was recently ranked #15 on the World's Best Dive Sites, chosen by CNN News. With this tour, you can experience the mysteries below without being a fully qualified diver, and make a fun afternoon of it while you enjoy the national park. There are also several walking trails around Silfra if you'll like to enjoy the scenery by the water. Because you're wearing a drysuit, you'll view Silfra from the surface while the slow current carries you through a stunning underwater landscape. You stay dry underneath the drysuit, and you'll be warmer in the water, which is usually around 2–4 °C (36–39 °F). It's so cold because it is meltwater from Langjökull glacier, filtered through porous lava rock for as much as 100 years before finally flowing into the fissure at the height of purity. Go ahead, take a sip! Don't miss your chance for a refreshing dip in the purest water on earth! Check availability by choosing a date.

Whale Watching Tour from Reykjavik

Jump aboard this whale-watching excursion to see the incredible wealth of marine wildlife just off Reykjavík’s shores. This tour is a must for nature-lovers, and fits perfectly into a busy holiday; you leave straight from the capital city’s Old Harbour and return approximately three hours later. You will arrive at the harbour in good time for your departure, either by making your way there yourself or through a pick-up you can request during booking. If taking this trip during summer, you will have a choice between two boats, which you can select based on your sense of adventure and the nature of your group. The first vessel, and the only one operated year-round, is one of the largest whale-watching boats in Iceland. It has a fantastic educational and interactive focus on board, where you can learn more about the whales, as well as a café. The second vessel is one of our newest additions to the fleet, a fast-cruising catamaran. It promises to get you to the prime whale-watching location in just twenty minutes so that you can immerse yourself in the activity immediately. These express tours are only available during the summer months. Trips on this tour are approximately an hour shorter. On the first boat, you will spend roughly three hours out on the ocean looking for whales (approx. two hours on the second). As you travel out, your guide will point out the natural features surrounding the capital; in clear weather, you should be able to see both the Reykjanes Peninsula and the Snæfellsnes peninsula, as well as the ‘whale fjord’, otherwise called Hvalfjörður.  Four species can be regularly seen on these tours: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, Minke Whales and Humpback Whales. It is not at all unheard of, however, to see orcas (or killer whales), pilot whales, Fin Whales, and even Basking Sharks. On top of these incredible animals, during summer you can expect to see a wealth of seabirds, most notably including the puffin. Your experienced guides can answer any questions you have as you hunt for and marvel over these majestic creatures.  Each tour yields entirely different results. The animals’ behaviour change throughout the day; you might catch them breaching, socialising, feeding or just basking near the surface. If by chance, you are not lucky enough to see a marine mammal, you will have another opportunity to take this tour for free until you do. You will return to Reykjavík after three hours on the sea, hopefully after many exciting sightings and an up-close look at some of Iceland’s marvellous creatures. Because of the convenience and length of this tour, there will still be plenty of opportunities to make the most of the rest of your day, either on another tour or within the capital. Do not miss your chance to see the magnificent whales, dolphins and porpoises of Iceland. Set sail into Faxaflói bay for your opportunity. Check availability by choosing a date.

Thrihnukagigur Volcano Tour | Go Inside a Magma Chamber

Descend into the vast and vibrant magma chamber of a dormant volcano. Iceland is the only place in the world where a tour like this exists, so do not miss your opportunity. This trip will begin when you are picked up from Reykjavík and taken to the Blue Mountains Country Park, Bláfjöll, which sits just on the outskirts of the capital area. From here, it is just a 3.2 kilometre (two mile) hike to Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you will descend into the volcano itself. Once you reach the crater, you will find an opening and an elevator crane. After being equipped with a helmet and harness, you will enter the lift's basket and begin your descent. Nowhere else in the world can you enter a magma chamber this way, which is part of what makes this tour so unique and worthwhile. This lift journey toward the centre of the earth covers 198 metres and takes about six minutes. During your slow descent, the beauty of the magma chamber will become instantly apparent. Intense heat and pressure from Þríhnúkagígur’s most recent eruption, over four thousand years ago, gave the rocks an incredible colouration and texture. Expect to see smooth walls and bizarre formations in yellows, blues, reds, violets and oranges, so vibrant that it’s difficult to believe that they could be natural. It is not just the beauty of the space that will awe you; it is also the sheer scale of it. To give some perspective on the size of the chamber, enormous monuments such as the Statue of Liberty and Reykjavík’s iconic Hallgrímskirkja church could easily fit inside it. The ground within the chamber is large enough to fit three basketball fields.  Once your descent down the chamber is complete, your guide will let you out of the elevator, and you can explore for half an hour on the ground of the volcano. You will want your camera on hand, as everything, from the blades of light falling from overhead to the most minute details of the lava rock, is worthy of a photograph.  Remember as you explore that it is only by a strange, unexpected geological process that this tour is even possible; when a volcano becomes dormant, the magma chamber usually cools and solidifies, yet for some reason in Þríhnúkagígur, it drained away, leaving behind this unimaginably beautiful space. After your exploration, you will return to the elevator for a gentle ascent, back into the bright, open world. Once you reach the surface, you will have a meal of Icelandic meat soup waiting for you, along with hot beverages and snacks, which you can enjoy before hiking back to the van. This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime; descend into a dormant volcano to explore its stunning magma chamber. Do not let this opportunity pass you by. Check availability by choosing a date.

Jokulsarlon Amphibian Boat Tour

Jump aboard this incredible boat trip in one of the world’s most inspiring places: the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon.

From here, you will proceed to board the amphibious vessel on land and wait for it to drive into the water. No doubt, before getting aboard, you will have been marvelling at the spectacle of Jökulsárlón. When immersed in the lagoon, however, with the icebergs surrounding you from all angles, you will experience a different kind of beauty; this otherworldly environment is simply breathtaking. You will spend forty minutes exploring the lagoon. There will be an English-speaking guide on board who will tell you all about the area's formation, history and future. You will even have an opportunity to taste the ice; considering it is thought to be about a thousand years old, this is quite the unique experience. As you cruise through the lagoon, keep an eye out for seals. Many of these adorable creatures call Jökulsárlón home, and they can often be seen playing in the water or basking on the bergs. The glacier lagoon is considered by many to be the most beautiful sight in Iceland, and an amphibious boat is one of the best ways to view it in all its glory. Once the tour is complete, however, do not forget to take a walk to the Diamond Beach to see where the bergs wash up after reaching the sea. A full day could be spent exploring this area, but the boat tour is sure to be the highlight. Do not miss your opportunity to see Jökulsárlón from amongst the ancient ice.

Zodiac Boat Tour of Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Hop on board a speedy Zodiac inflatable boat for a tour among the massive icebergs of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This is part of an essential Icelandic experience, admiring the sun shining through the clouds on the blue-and-white ice floating peacefully from the lagoon. Boat tours began at the lagoon in 1985, after the opening sequence of the Bond film A View to a Kill was shot on location. Today, they are one of the most popular activities in Iceland, and three other major motion pictures have been shot on the lagoon to catch the unbelievable scenery. The glacier lagoon has been expanding since the 1970s due to the retreat of Vatnajökull glacier, pulling back from the coastline. It is now the deepest lake in Iceland, filling with ancient ice that cracks off of Breiðamerkurjökull glacial tongue, floating down rivers of meltwater to the glacier, where they float slowly out to sea, pulled by the tides. In good weather, gulls and seals often play on the ice. Photographers love to capture these animals, along with the huge chunks of ice as they float by or wash up on nearby Diamond Beach and lie sparkling on the black sand like diamonds on velvet. After making your way to Jökulsárlón to meet your group 30 minutes before tour departure, you’ll be provided with flotation suits and a life jacket. The small, low construction of the Zodiac boats allows you to explore a large area of the lagoon and get up close and personal with the ice (as close as safety allows). Take this opportunity to whizz across the magnificent glacier lagoon in a high-powered Zodiac! Check availability by choosing a date.

In medieval times, the caves surrounding the glacier were a favourite hiding spot for the outlaws of Iceland, as they escaped exile or plotted revenge on their enemies. Ask your guide all about the history of these stunning natural surroundings. Once you finish with your chilling ride, you will head back to base camp and catch a ride back to Gullfoss Waterfall.

This tour is for anyone who would like to see the landscapes which make Iceland one of the hottest tourist destinations in the world.

You can also take a walk on nearby Diamond Beach with its black sand, another hint towards Iceland's volcanic past. Chunks of ice wash on shore here and sparkle in the sun like diamonds on a bed of velvet, which is what inspired the name. You’ll make your way back to the West and stop in Vík, a small town on the coast and an important stop on the Ring Road. You’ll experience the cute cafés and souvenir shops during this dinner break. On the way back, you’ll be passing one of Iceland’s most famous waterfall: Seljalandsfoss. An additional secret stop will be planned in this itinerary! So hurry now and grab a seat on this fantastic bus tour to see the true natural jewels of Iceland’s south coast. Check the booking availability by choosing a date.

Snorkelling Silfra Tour | Meet on Location

Come along on a unique adventure where you'll snorkel in the crystal clear waters of Silfra fissure. Those wanting to spice up their Icelandic holiday with a once-in-a-lifetime tour should not let this opportunity pass them by. Silfra is a fissure created by the separation of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. This remarkable crack between two tectonic plates continuously fills with glacial water that has been trickling through underground lava for approximately 30 years. This natural filtering system allows for over 100 meters visibility and makes it among the clearest bodies of water on the planet. You will meet your instructors at the parking lot of Silfra fissure in Þingvellir National Park. If you'd rather be picked up you can check out the Snorkelling Silfra Fissure with Reykjavik Pickup tour. The highly trained instructors will first dress you in an undergarment and dry suit. After suiting up, your guide will lead you through the four parts of the Silfra fissure. As the glacial water finally reaches Silfra it creates a very slight and comfortable current and all you need to do is allow yourself to float downstream. Because of the water’s clarity, this floating may feel in fact more like flying. You will spend about 30-40 minutes snorkelling through Silfra. After a short walk back to the parking lot, hot chocolate and cookies will be waiting for you. Please be sure to bring a pair of long underwear and two pairs of thick wool socks to make sure that you stay comfortably warm in the 2°C water. Your hands and face will come into direct contact with the water, but the rest of you should stay dry. If the weather is less than favourable, no worries, this company has a “changing room” on wheels for you to take shelter in while changing. This is truly an is an otherworldly experience; the near-freezing water, astonishing colours, and sensations of flying provide a unique environment for liquid meditation that you will never forget. This tour is run by the 5 Star PADI Dive Center that was the first company to offer snorkelling tours of Silfra. They are the pioneers in snorkelling and diving tours in Iceland and after 20 years of experience, they have become the experts in the field. They go above and beyond to offer the highest quality experiences and they love what they do! Don't miss this awesome adventure! Check availability by choosing a date. Please choose Snorkeling Silfra with Pick up if you would like to use our transportation service.

Into The Underworld | Vatnshellir Caving Tour

Explore this 8,000-year-old lava cave by booking this exciting tour to Vatnshellir Cave, found in the forever-sublime Snæfellsjökull National Park. This tour is perfect for thrill seekers, nature lovers and those travellers looking to experience something truly unique whilst in Iceland! Given that this cave has only been open to the public since 2011, you can be guaranteed that this is one of Iceland's most exciting new activities. Vatnshellir can be located just 10-minutes drive from the village of Hellnar, making it easily accessible to those travelling through the Snæfellsnes Peninsula.  You'll receive all the necessary gear (ie; a helmet and headlamp) to help you see deep below the earth. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes, as the volcanic rock beneath your feet can be quite difficult to traverse! When everyone is ready, there is a spiral staircase to descend into this naturally formed underworld.  You will follow the path of the lava flow, about 200 meters into the cave, 35 metres below the surface, to see some truly amazing colours and lava formations. The cave is an easy walk, but the ground is sharp and uneven, so children age 5 and up are welcome, as are visitors in good health and physical fitness - the tour provider prefers everyone on the tour to be able to walk unassisted! At the bottom of the cave, you'll turn off your lights for a moment to experience the all-consuming darkness! In the modern era, we are used to having easy access to light, so it can be startling to imagine life before electricity! After feeling a little spooked, you will proceed to explore a number of chambers hidden within the cave.  Throughout the tour, your guide will be eager to tell you all about the bursting eruption which cracked the earth open to form this cave, as well as the folklore woven into the fabric of the peninsula. So what are you waiting for? Don't miss this opportunity to see the strange, subterranean beauty of Vatnshellir cave! Check the booking availability by choosing a date.

This is an amazing opportunity for any explorers in Iceland looking to visit one of the most unique places, not just in the country, but in the world.

Once here, you will take a short journey through the volcanic, moss-laden fields of the National Park, finally unloading at the Silfra car park. Here, you will listen as your friendly and experienced PADI Divemaster guide provides a quick safety briefing.  They will also hand out all of the necessary kits for snorkelling in Silfra, including neoprene hoods and gloves, a thermal undersuit, a drysuit and, of course, your own mask, snorkel and fins. This equipment will keep you buoyant throughout your time in the fissure, as well as offering a great deal of thermal protection against Silfra’s 2°C / 35°F glacial water.  Once you enter the water, you will be immediately awestruck by the incredible shades of blue so prevalent in the fissure, as well as its jagged, algae strewn canyon walls. As you float above this canyon, you will have the opportunity to touch each side; this means that you’re placing your hands on both the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates (one of the major reasons as to why Þingvellir is so internationally beloved).  Moving along the fissure, you will discover Silfra Hall (the fissure’s widest section) and the magnificent Silfra Cathedral (the fissure’s deepest section), as well as a gorgeous shallow oasis at the fissure’s end known as the “Real Blue Lagoon”. So don't delay any further! Hurry now and you too can discover the amazing sights of Silfra glacial fissures, one of the major wonders to be found in Iceland. Check availability by choosing a date.

Best Value Whale Watching Trip from Reykjavik

Embark on an incredible and affordable whale watching excursion from Reykjavik. This ocean adventure grants you a fantastic opportunity to see a wealth of marine and bird life, without taking considerable time away from your holiday. The vessel you will be travelling in is perfect for spotting whales. It has three separate viewing platforms as well as an indoor saloon equipped with a café, so you can enjoy a hot drink or light refreshments throughout the journey. You can organize a pick-up from your accommodation or designated bus stop if staying in Reykjavik City center for a small cost, or else meet at the departure point most convenient to you: from Reykjavik Old Harbour. Once everyone has boarded, you will head straight out into Faxaflói bay, where the creatures of the deep are waiting. En route, in clear weather, you will get some fantastic views of the nature surrounding Reykjavik—the sight of the whole Reykjanes and Snæfellsnes peninsulas are stunning to behold. Summer is the peak season for whale-watching, as it is the prime feeding time for the whales and migratory seabirds such as puffins can be seen. That being said, the winter months still regularly yield excellent results; just expect to see less bird-life. The four main species you will be searching for are the Minke Whale, the Humpback Whale, the white-beaked dolphin and the harbour porpoise; each of these creatures is unique and fascinating. That is not to say these are the only creatures you may see, however; Fin Whales, Killer Whales (or orcas), Pilot Whales and even Basking Sharks are known visitors in Faxaflói Bay. You will spend two to three and a half hours on the water, searching for and marvelling over the marine life. Your experienced guide can answer any questions you may have; and will tell you about each creature as you see it. If the weather means this tour is cancelled, you are welcome to join tour some onther day or get a full refund if you did not join this tour before or if you are very unlucky and there are no sightings, you get to go again, free of charge, until you see a marine mammal. So do not hesitate to book; grab your chance to see the majestic animals of the deep at an affordable price! Check availability by choosing a date. Whale Watching:  January - May & 16 September - December: 13:00 June - 15 September: 14:00 March - 15 November: 9:00 Whale Watching tour last for: Winter - approx. 3-3,5 h Summer (1.06-15.09) - approx. 2 - 3h at 9:00 & 14:00 - will be provided with the faster boat so the time on the spotting area will be the same, just sailing to that point and back to harbour would be shorter.

2 in 1 Bundle Discount Winter Tours | Golden Circle, Ice Cave & Snaefellsnes

Visit many of Iceland’s highlights over four days and save money while doing so with this discounted tour bundle. Those who want to mix their winter-time in Iceland with both sightseeing and adventure, while cutting on costs, should not miss this opportunity. This combo consists of two tours, which will bring you to many famous sites and all three of Iceland’s National Parks. On the 3-day south coast tour, you will get to explore the Golden Circle, South Coast and the Jökulsárlón Glacier Lagoon; you also get to embark on a glacier hike and an ice caving adventure. On the day tour to the Snaefellsnes Peninsula, you will see majestic waterfalls, stretches of dark lava fields and a mighty glacier.  During the 3-day tour to the south coast, you will be staying in country hotels along the trip for 2 nights, which are included in the price. This will cut down on driving time and put you right in the middle of the sites. You will also be transported around in comfortable minibuses throughout both tours, led by experienced guides, making the experience as personal and enjoyable as possible. Iceland during winter is one of its most beautiful times. Many of the sites you will visit will be draped in snow and sparkling with frost; the glaciers will be clad in fresh, electric blue ice; and the ice caves are open. These caves only occur in Iceland’s coldest months, and only then under certain conditions, so the chance to explore one is something very few have. Of course, winter is also the season of the Northern Lights. There will be many hours of darkness each day, and whenever there is no cloud cover, you have a chance of seeing them. This is only amplified when you are staying out in the country, where there is little light pollution. Make the most of your time in Iceland throughout winter, without breaking the bank.

​Ice Cave Tour by Vatnajokull Glacier | Departure from Jokulsarlon

This is the highest rated ice cave tour in Iceland, so book now to secure your spot. Just choose the time which fits your schedule and make your way to Jökulsárlón Café, beside the famous glacier lagoon in Southeast Iceland. You can make a day of it, and enjoy the glacier lagoon area, taking pictures of the floating icebergs. Reserve early as this tour is very popular and is likely to sell out. At the start of the tour, you will drive with your group to the cave which has been specially chosen for its dazzling structure.

Snaefellsnes National Park | Small Group Day Tour

Jump aboard this captivating tour to the Snæfellsnes peninsula. Sometimes called ‘Iceland in Miniature’ due to its vast diversity of landscapes, this is the perfect trip for those who seek to capture the true spirit and beauty of this incredible island. This is a small-group minibus tour for a maximum of 19 people, allowing for a comfortable and personal experience. You’ll be picked up from your accommodation in Reykjavík in the morning, then head north-west. While the immediate surrounding scenery will be of rolling farmlands, it will diversify as soon as you reach the peninsula. You will cruise between the beautiful, rocky coast and a long range of mountains to your first destination: the Snæfellsjökull subglacial volcano. Often called ‘the crown jewel of the peninsula’, Snæfellsjökull is a magnificent, cone-shaped volcano adorned with ice throughout the year. Its beauty has inspired writers and artists for centuries, most notably Jules Verne; his novel ‘A Journey to the Centre of the Earth’ is set here. After admiring this incredible natural landmark, you will head to the charming farm of Ytri-Tunga to see its resident seal colony. These creatures, which spend hours hauling out on the shore, are a pleasure to observe, as they lazily sun themselves with little concern for those observing them. Animal-lovers would do well to keep an eye on the ocean around here too, as Snæfellsnes is one of the best places in the country to spot orcas from the shore. You will next see the charming villages of Arnarstapi and Hellnar, which are said to be steeped in magic and folklore. They are located in a lovely coastal area, which is dotted with beautiful rock formations and dramatic cliffs. The most notable of these geological formations are the two basalt columns called Lóndrangar, so tall and striking that many have compared them to a castle. Near these, you will have a chance to wander along a gorgeous black beach, Djúpalónssandur, the cliffs of which are home to many nesting seabirds. At Djúpalónssandur, you’ll find a curiosity on the beach: four large, smooth stones. They are ‘lifting stones’, once used to measure the strength of fishermen who worked and lived along the coasts here. Your guide will tell you what each was called, and you can see how well you would have risen to the challenge of moving them. Your final stop will be at the most photographed mountain in all of Iceland. Kirkjufell rises alone from a sea of green hills and wildflowers, surrounded by trickling rivers and little waterfalls; it is without a doubt one of the most scenic areas in the country. You’ll want to have your camera on hand when exploring this beautiful feature. The Snæfellnes peninsula is one of the country’s most beautiful spots. Don’t miss your opportunity to see 'Iceland in Miniature'. Check availability by choosing a date.

Drysuit Snorkeling Tour in Silfra - FREE Photos

Dive into this drysuit snorkelling tour of Silfra fissure in Þingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Conducted at the edge of Þingvallavatn, the largest natural lake in Iceland, this tour is sure to enthral and mesmerise you! You'll have an unforgettable view down into the depths below, thanks to the silvery water which gives Silfra its name. The water is so clear, you'll be able to see as far as 100 m (almost 330 ft) down, to the shadowy caves that are formed by centuries of earthquakes widening the fissure and releasing the pressures of the earth's crust. It's the only place on earth where you can swim between a meeting place of worlds: the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Witness the strength and power of the land as you drift on the current. Plants resembling troll hair grow on the rocks, floating in the water, and you'll see many shades of green and yellow algae. Silfra was recently ranked #15 on the World's Best Dive Sites, chosen by CNN News. With this tour, you can experience the mysteries below without being a fully qualified diver, and make a fun afternoon of it while you enjoy the national park. There are also several walking trails around Silfra if you'll like to enjoy the scenery by the water. Because you're wearing a drysuit, you'll view Silfra from the surface while the slow current carries you through a stunning underwater landscape. You stay dry underneath the drysuit, and you'll be warmer in the water, which is usually around 2–4 °C (36–39 °F). It's so cold because it is meltwater from Langjökull glacier, filtered through porous lava rock for as much as 100 years before finally flowing into the fissure at the height of purity. Go ahead, take a sip! Don't miss your chance for a refreshing dip in the purest water on earth! Check availability by choosing a date.

Whale Watching Tour from Reykjavik

Jump aboard this whale-watching excursion to see the incredible wealth of marine wildlife just off Reykjavík’s shores. This tour is a must for nature-lovers, and fits perfectly into a busy holiday; you leave straight from the capital city’s Old Harbour and return approximately three hours later. You will arrive at the harbour in good time for your departure, either by making your way there yourself or through a pick-up you can request during booking. If taking this trip during summer, you will have a choice between two boats, which you can select based on your sense of adventure and the nature of your group. The first vessel, and the only one operated year-round, is one of the largest whale-watching boats in Iceland. It has a fantastic educational and interactive focus on board, where you can learn more about the whales, as well as a café. The second vessel is one of our newest additions to the fleet, a fast-cruising catamaran. It promises to get you to the prime whale-watching location in just twenty minutes so that you can immerse yourself in the activity immediately. These express tours are only available during the summer months. Trips on this tour are approximately an hour shorter. On the first boat, you will spend roughly three hours out on the ocean looking for whales (approx. two hours on the second). As you travel out, your guide will point out the natural features surrounding the capital; in clear weather, you should be able to see both the Reykjanes Peninsula and the Snæfellsnes peninsula, as well as the ‘whale fjord’, otherwise called Hvalfjörður.  Four species can be regularly seen on these tours: harbour porpoises, white-beaked dolphins, Minke Whales and Humpback Whales. It is not at all unheard of, however, to see orcas (or killer whales), pilot whales, Fin Whales, and even Basking Sharks. On top of these incredible animals, during summer you can expect to see a wealth of seabirds, most notably including the puffin. Your experienced guides can answer any questions you have as you hunt for and marvel over these majestic creatures.  Each tour yields entirely different results. The animals’ behaviour change throughout the day; you might catch them breaching, socialising, feeding or just basking near the surface. If by chance, you are not lucky enough to see a marine mammal, you will have another opportunity to take this tour for free until you do. You will return to Reykjavík after three hours on the sea, hopefully after many exciting sightings and an up-close look at some of Iceland’s marvellous creatures. Because of the convenience and length of this tour, there will still be plenty of opportunities to make the most of the rest of your day, either on another tour or within the capital. Do not miss your chance to see the magnificent whales, dolphins and porpoises of Iceland. Set sail into Faxaflói bay for your opportunity. Check availability by choosing a date.

Thrihnukagigur Volcano Tour | Go Inside a Magma Chamber

Descend into the vast and vibrant magma chamber of a dormant volcano. Iceland is the only place in the world where a tour like this exists, so do not miss your opportunity. This trip will begin when you are picked up from Reykjavík and taken to the Blue Mountains Country Park, Bláfjöll, which sits just on the outskirts of the capital area. From here, it is just a 3.2 kilometre (two mile) hike to Þríhnúkagígur volcano, where you will descend into the volcano itself. Once you reach the crater, you will find an opening and an elevator crane. After being equipped with a helmet and harness, you will enter the lift's basket and begin your descent. Nowhere else in the world can you enter a magma chamber this way, which is part of what makes this tour so unique and worthwhile. This lift journey toward the centre of the earth covers 198 metres and takes about six minutes. During your slow descent, the beauty of the magma chamber will become instantly apparent. Intense heat and pressure from Þríhnúkagígur’s most recent eruption, over four thousand years ago, gave the rocks an incredible colouration and texture. Expect to see smooth walls and bizarre formations in yellows, blues, reds, violets and oranges, so vibrant that it’s difficult to believe that they could be natural. It is not just the beauty of the space that will awe you; it is also the sheer scale of it. To give some perspective on the size of the chamber, enormous monuments such as the Statue of Liberty and Reykjavík’s iconic Hallgrímskirkja church could easily fit inside it. The ground within the chamber is large enough to fit three basketball fields.  Once your descent down the chamber is complete, your guide will let you out of the elevator, and you can explore for half an hour on the ground of the volcano. You will want your camera on hand, as everything, from the blades of light falling from overhead to the most minute details of the lava rock, is worthy of a photograph.  Remember as you explore that it is only by a strange, unexpected geological process that this tour is even possible; when a volcano becomes dormant, the magma chamber usually cools and solidifies, yet for some reason in Þríhnúkagígur, it drained away, leaving behind this unimaginably beautiful space. After your exploration, you will return to the elevator for a gentle ascent, back into the bright, open world. Once you reach the surface, you will have a meal of Icelandic meat soup waiting for you, along with hot beverages and snacks, which you can enjoy before hiking back to the van. This experience is truly once-in-a-lifetime; descend into a dormant volcano to explore its stunning magma chamber. Do not let this opportunity pass you by. Check availability by choosing a date.

Jokulsarlon Amphibian Boat Tour

Jump aboard this incredible boat trip in one of the world’s most inspiring places: the Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. Cruise between the marvellous icebergs that make this site so beautiful and well-renowned.  To begin this tour, you will meet at the cafe at Jökulsárlón twenty minutes before your departure, where you can exchange your vouchers for boat tickets. From here, you will proceed to board the amphibious vessel on land and wait for it to drive into the water. No doubt, before getting aboard, you will have been marvelling at the spectacle of Jökulsárlón. When immersed in the lagoon, however, with the icebergs surrounding you from all angles, you will experience a different kind of beauty; this otherworldly environment is simply breathtaking. You will spend forty minutes exploring the lagoon. There will be an English-speaking guide on board who will tell you all about the area's formation, history and future. You will even have an opportunity to taste the ice; considering it is thought to be about a thousand years old, this is quite the unique experience. As you cruise through the lagoon, keep an eye out for seals. Many of these adorable creatures call Jökulsárlón home, and they can often be seen playing in the water or basking on the bergs. The glacier lagoon is considered by many to be the most beautiful sight in Iceland, and an amphibious boat is one of the best ways to view it in all its glory. Once the tour is complete, however, do not forget to take a walk to the Diamond Beach to see where the bergs wash up after reaching the sea. A full day could be spent exploring this area, but the boat tour is sure to be the highlight. Do not miss your opportunity to see Jökulsárlón from amongst the ancient ice. Book now to make sure you get your place on board. Check availability by choosing a date.

Zodiac Boat Tour of Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon

Hop on board a speedy Zodiac inflatable boat for a tour among the massive icebergs of Jökulsárlón glacier lagoon. This is part of an essential Icelandic experience, admiring the sun shining through the clouds on the blue-and-white ice floating peacefully from the lagoon. Boat tours began at the lagoon in 1985, after the opening sequence of the Bond film A View to a Kill was shot on location. Today, they are one of the most popular activities in Iceland, and three other major motion pictures have been shot on the lagoon to catch the unbelievable scenery. The glacier lagoon has been expanding since the 1970s due to the retreat of Vatnajökull glacier, pulling back from the coastline. It is now the deepest lake in Iceland, filling with ancient ice that cracks off of Breiðamerkurjökull glacial tongue, floating down rivers of meltwater to the glacier, where they float slowly out to sea, pulled by the tides. In good weather, gulls and seals often play on the ice. Photographers love to capture these animals, along with the huge chunks of ice as they float by or wash up on nearby Diamond Beach and lie sparkling on the black sand like diamonds on velvet. After making your way to Jökulsárlón to meet your group 30 minutes before tour departure, you’ll be provided with flotation suits and a life jacket. The small, low construction of the Zodiac boats allows you to explore a large area of the lagoon and get up close and personal with the ice (as close as safety allows). Take this opportunity to whizz across the magnificent glacier lagoon in a high-powered Zodiac! Check availability by choosing a date.

Snorkelling Silfra Tour | Meet on Location

Come along on a unique adventure where you'll snorkel in the crystal clear waters of Silfra fissure. Those wanting to spice up their Icelandic holiday with a once-in-a-lifetime tour should not let this opportunity pass them by. Silfra is a fissure created by the separation of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. This remarkable crack between two tectonic plates continuously fills with glacial water that has been trickling through underground lava for approximately 30 years. This natural filtering system allows for over 100 meters visibility and makes it among the clearest bodies of water on the planet. You will meet your instructors at the parking lot of Silfra fissure in Þingvellir National Park. If you'd rather be picked up you can check out the Snorkelling Silfra Fissure with Reykjavik Pickup tour. The highly trained instructors will first dress you in an undergarment and dry suit. After suiting up, your guide will lead you through the four parts of the Silfra fissure. As the glacial water finally reaches Silfra it creates a very slight and comfortable current and all you need to do is allow yourself to float downstream. Because of the water’s clarity, this floating may feel in fact more like flying. You will spend about 30-40 minutes snorkelling through Silfra. After a short walk back to the parking lot, hot chocolate and cookies will be waiting for you. Please be sure to bring a pair of long underwear and two pairs of thick wool socks to make sure that you stay comfortably warm in the 2°C water. Your hands and face will come into direct contact with the water, but the rest of you should stay dry. If the weather is less than favourable, no worries, this company has a “changing room” on wheels for you to take shelter in while changing. This is truly an is an otherworldly experience; the near-freezing water, astonishing colours, and sensations of flying provide a unique environment for liquid meditation that you will never forget. This tour is run by the 5 Star PADI Dive Center that was the first company to offer snorkelling tours of Silfra. They are the pioneers in snorkelling and diving tours in Iceland and after 20 years of experience, they have become the experts in the field. They go above and beyond to offer the highest quality experiences and they love what they do! Don't miss this awesome adventure! Check availability by choosing a date.
