Witness the strength and power of the land as you drift on the current.

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.

Silfra Snorkelling Tour

Join this fantastic snorkelling tour in the world famous Silfra Fissure, found in Iceland's only UNESCO World Heritage site, Þingvellir National Park. This is the perfect tour opportunity for adventure-hungry travellers looking to experience an activity that can be found nowhere else on earth; swimming between the continents.After being picked up from your accommodation in Iceland's capital, Reykjavík, you will be driven roughly forty minutes to one of the country's most beautiful and important regions, Þingvellir. Not only is this one of the only places in the world that you can see both the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates exposed from the earth, it is also where the world's first democratically elected parliament, the Alþingi, was formed in 930 AD. Aside from its rich geological and historical draws, Þingvellir is also home to the glacial spring, Silfra Fissure. Here, water originating from Langjökull glacier travels for half a century through underground tunnel networks before exiting at Silfra. The fissure itself is directly between the North American and Eurasian plates, taking the form of a deep blue canyon with visibility that can often reach 100 metres. The water at Silfra is 2-4° Celsius (35-39°Fahrenheit), never freezing thanks to the light current that runs through the fissure. In order to give yourself thermal protection in the water, you will be wearing 7mm wetsuits; whilst thinner than a drysuit, wetsuits provide more flexibility and movement in the water, allowing you to dive and swim to your heart's content rather than merely float on the surface. Silfra Fissure is split into three distinct segments; Silfra Hall (the fissure's widest point), Silfra Cathedral (the fissure's deepest point) and "The Real Blue Lagoon", a shallow area of cracks and sand at the fissure's end. Snorkelling in Silfra Fissure is available as a tour all year round. So don't don't hesitate any longer. Hurry now and you too can experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the underwater majesty of Silfra Fissure. Check availability by choosing a date.

It's an out of this world adventure inside a hidden natural wonder, where the 100 m (almost 330 ft) underwater visibility and bright colours make for an unbelievable afternoon.The pristine water in Silfra is one of the purest and clearest streams you’ll find on the planet, which is why it is named Silfra (silver)! When snorkelling in Silfra, you are travelling between two continents, ending the tour in a lagoon often called "the real Blue Lagoon" because of the bright blue colour of the water.Silfra is one of the most highly regarded diving locations on earth for all these reasons and more. Located on the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, it is one of the largest fissures on Lake Þingvallavatn, a result of the endless tension of the earth as pressure builds and earthquakes tear the landscape, widening into fissures and underwater caves.Snorkelling in Silfra rift where you are guided into this magnificent scenery is a treat for all nature lovers and adventure seeking individuals and groups.Because it is a wetsuit tour, you'll have more freedom of movement and will even be able to free dive by holding your breath. The wetsuits you will use are 6 mm in thickness and isolate the body well from the cold water.The water temperature is between 2–4 °C (36–39 °F). However, when wearing a wetsuit, water always gets underneath the suit, which slowly warms up. You'll need to bring a bathing suit to wear underneath the wetsuit.In short, you'll be able to dive deeper, but you'll be exposed to colder temperatures. If you think the water might be too cold for you, try Adventure Viking's drysuit tour, which provides the same beautiful scenery while keeping you much warmer.So don't miss your chance to see the beautiful underwater world of Silfra fissure!

Silfra Snorkelling Tour

Join this fantastic snorkelling tour in the world famous Silfra Fissure, found in Iceland's only UNESCO World Heritage site, Þingvellir National Park. This is the perfect tour opportunity for adventure-hungry travellers looking to experience an activity that can be found nowhere else on earth; swimming between the continents.After being picked up from your accommodation in Iceland's capital, Reykjavík, you will be driven roughly forty minutes to one of the country's most beautiful and important regions, Þingvellir. Not only is this one of the only places in the world that you can see both the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates exposed from the earth, it is also where the world's first democratically elected parliament, the Alþingi, was formed in 930 AD. Aside from its rich geological and historical draws, Þingvellir is also home to the glacial spring, Silfra Fissure. Here, water originating from Langjökull glacier travels for half a century through underground tunnel networks before exiting at Silfra. The fissure itself is directly between the North American and Eurasian plates, taking the form of a deep blue canyon with visibility that can often reach 100 metres. The water at Silfra is 2-4° Celsius (35-39°Fahrenheit), never freezing thanks to the light current that runs through the fissure. In order to give yourself thermal protection in the water, you will be wearing 7mm wetsuits; whilst thinner than a drysuit, wetsuits provide more flexibility and movement in the water, allowing you to dive and swim to your heart's content rather than merely float on the surface. Silfra Fissure is split into three distinct segments; Silfra Hall (the fissure's widest point), Silfra Cathedral (the fissure's deepest point) and "The Real Blue Lagoon", a shallow area of cracks and sand at the fissure's end. Snorkelling in Silfra Fissure is available as a tour all year round. So don't don't hesitate any longer. Hurry now and you too can experience this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to explore the underwater majesty of Silfra Fissure. Check availability by choosing a date.

Drysuit Snorkelling Tour in Silfra

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.
