Freedive Silfra Tour in a Wetsuit

Marvel over Iceland’s hidden underwater world on this freediving tour of Silfra ravine. This trip should not be missed by those who love snorkelling but want more freedom than a standard drysuit tour would allow.This tour begins in the carpark by Silfra in Þingvellir National Park; you can specify during booking if you would like to be picked up and dropped off. Þingvellir is one of Iceland’s most famous spots, being the only UNESCO World Heritage Site on the Icelandic mainland as it was the original site of what is now the world’s longest-running parliament.The geology of Þingvellir is of more interest to you, however. Located right between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, it has become riddled with ravines as they have pulled apart. Due to underground meltwater travelling through the porous lava rock from Langjökull glacier, all these ravines fill with water, which has been filtered for decades. It is thus some of the cleanest and clearest in the world. You can drink it, and see for over 120 metres.Your guide will tell you all about your route and the safety requirements, before getting you in your wetsuit and providing you with your equipment. Once your group is ready, you will head to the staircase and enter the water.The first thing you’ll notice is that it is chilly; the second thing is that it's unbelievably beautiful. You’ll warm up as you swim through Silfra, diving to its depths and exploring its dramatic features. For about forty minutes, you’ll immerse yourself in this underwater world, with far more freedom and flexibility than other snorkelers and divers in their drysuits.Once you get out of the water, you’ll return to the car-park for some hot chocolate to warm up with.Don’t miss this opportunity to immerse yourself in the underwater wonderland of Silfra.

On this dive, you will be able to place one hand on each of them while underwater.The fissure is filled with crystal clear glacial water that has been filtered through underground lava systems for decades before reaching Silfra. The water in Silfra thus provides up to 120 meters of visibility and is drinkable.The tour begins, however, with pick up in central Reykjavík.

Diving Silfra & Horseback Riding Tour

Pack two activities into one day with this scuba diving and horse-riding combination tour. Those who want to immerse themselves into Iceland’s spectacular nature without missing out on a second of adventure shouldn’t miss this opportunity.Your day begins when your guides pick you up from downtown Reykjavík, then drive to Þingvellir National Park, where the dive site is. This National Park has more than just awe-inspiring underwater worlds; it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its history, being the original site of the world’s longest-running parliament. It is also located right between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, in the middle of the Mid-Atlantic Rift.The movement between these plates causes tension on the landscape, and tears fissures open through the lava fields. As there is a huge amount of water flowing underground here, trickling through the pores of lava rock after melting from Langjökull glacier, it emerges in these ravines as spring water. Silfra is one such ravine.Because of the subterranean filtration the water goes through before it reaches Silfra, it is some of the clearest and cleanest in the world. It is drinkable, and the visibility can often exceed 120 metres. For this reason, it is regularly voted one of the top five dive sites in the world.When you arrive at Silfra, your guides will brief you on the location, get you into your drysuit, and lead you into the water. The dramatic plunging depths, the intensity of the blues, and the fact that you are literally diving between the continents will consume your mind for the entire tour.You’ll marvel over Silfra Hall and Cathedral, before cruising through the underwater gardens that make up the Silfra Lagoon to the exit. After getting out, you’ll have a short walk back to the carpark, where your guides await with hot chocolate and cookies.Next, it is time for the horse-ride. You will travel back along the road you came, to the beautiful and verdant Mosfellsdalur Valley which sits just outside of Reykjavík. Here, you will head over to the local horse-farm and meet your riding guides. Unlike the scuba dive, where you need qualifications and experience to join, you can be a complete horse-riding novice and still enjoy this tour. As soon as you meet the Icelandic horses, you’ll see why they are perfect for beginners; they are small, sturdy, curious, friendly, and difficult to spook. If you are more experienced, however, worry not; you’ll have the opportunity to do more than just a gentle trot.Mosfellsdalur is a beautiful place to ride through, with river systems, surrounding mountains, and quaint, sparse buildings. There is a lot of history here too; it was home to Iceland’s only Nobel Prize winner, Halldór Laxness, who won the prize for literature in 1955.After enjoying your ride, you can hop back into your bus, and you’ll be whisked back to Reykjavík.Don’t miss this combination of scuba diving and horseback riding.

If you are more experienced, however, worry not; you’ll have the opportunity to do more than just a gentle trot.Mosfellsdalur is a beautiful place to ride through, with river systems, surrounding mountains, and quaint, sparse buildings. There is a lot of history here too; it was home to Iceland’s only Nobel Prize winner, Halldór Laxness, who won the prize for literature in 1955.After enjoying your ride, you can hop back into your bus, and you’ll be whisked back to Reykjavík.Don’t miss this combination of scuba diving and horseback riding.

Diving Silfra & Horseback Riding Tour

Pack two activities into one day with this scuba diving and horse-riding combination tour. Those who want to immerse themselves into Iceland’s spectacular nature without missing out on a second of adventure shouldn’t miss this opportunity.Your day begins when your guides pick you up from downtown Reykjavík, then drive to Þingvellir National Park, where the dive site is. This National Park has more than just awe-inspiring underwater worlds; it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site for its history, being the original site of the world’s longest-running parliament. It is also located right between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, in the middle of the Mid-Atlantic Rift.The movement between these plates causes tension on the landscape, and tears fissures open through the lava fields. As there is a huge amount of water flowing underground here, trickling through the pores of lava rock after melting from Langjökull glacier, it emerges in these ravines as spring water. Silfra is one such ravine.Because of the subterranean filtration the water goes through before it reaches Silfra, it is some of the clearest and cleanest in the world. It is drinkable, and the visibility can often exceed 120 metres. For this reason, it is regularly voted one of the top five dive sites in the world.When you arrive at Silfra, your guides will brief you on the location, get you into your drysuit, and lead you into the water. The dramatic plunging depths, the intensity of the blues, and the fact that you are literally diving between the continents will consume your mind for the entire tour.You’ll marvel over Silfra Hall and Cathedral, before cruising through the underwater gardens that make up the Silfra Lagoon to the exit. After getting out, you’ll have a short walk back to the carpark, where your guides await with hot chocolate and cookies.Next, it is time for the horse-ride. You will travel back along the road you came, to the beautiful and verdant Mosfellsdalur Valley which sits just outside of Reykjavík. Here, you will head over to the local horse-farm and meet your riding guides. Unlike the scuba dive, where you need qualifications and experience to join, you can be a complete horse-riding novice and still enjoy this tour.
