Golden Circle & Snorkeling

Thingvellir National Park is home to Silfra fissure, one of the world's most spectacular and unique freshwater snorkeling spots. Clear enough to drink while on your adventure, it has almost neverending visibility. Below the surface the water is an adventure in itself but Silfra's proximity to other significant sightseeing locations makes this the perfect chance to see these sites. After Thingvellir we visit Geysir hot spring where you can witness gurgling bubbling water burst 25 meters high. From there we continue on to Gullfoss “the golden waterfall”, with practically no limit to how close you can stand next to it. The Golden Circle is a must see for everyone visiting Iceland!

Join us on the Golden Circle & Snorkeling full day tour for only 27.990 kr!

  • "Silfra Snorkel"

    The snorkel trip to Silfra, a beautiful trip to view the continental divide. The water is crystal clear and the view is stunning. A great adventure! The drive and views in Thingviller are beautiful!

  • "Great guides, unique experiences"

    We did the Black and Blue tour. Our guide Svara was informed and entertaining. Cave Gjabakkahellir involved a good deal of clambering and attention to where to step, and Svara guided us (me especially) every step of the way. The snorkeling was really a one-of-a-kind experience. Our guide Neill was a diving expert and gave detailed guidance with humor. He gave special assistance with the equipment when anyone (me, again) needed it.

  • "Snorkeling in Iceland? YES!"

    What can I say about this experience? It was awesome! I've been snorkeling many places around the world, but this was such a unique adventure. All of the equipment is provided for you. Be sure to wear something other than jeans to the tour. You'll be putting on a teddy bear suit (a sleeping bag with arms and legs) and then a dry suit over it. Jeans will be very uncomfortable. All three guides helped people get their gear on and expel all the excess air once in the water. Trust me, after getting the gear on you'll need some help. The water is very cold on your face at first, but what did you expect? You are in Iceland. The sights under the water are breathtaking. Seeing the deep divide being caused by the tectonic plates pulling apart is something I will never forget. There is an area that you snorkel through that is narrow enough to reach out and touch the North American and Eurasian plates at the same time. Not many people can say they did that. Thanks for a great afternoon!"
