Get more out of your snorkeling tour by adding a lava caving tour to your day and spend the whole day beneath the surface. We visit a historic lava-tube for caving and then head to Thingvellir National park to go snorkeling for a full day of adventure and sightseeing!
Trip difficulty: 3 out of 5 possible. Rated: Moderate.
Caving: After pick up we start out at a lava tube in the vicinity of Reykjavik. The volcanic landscape of Iceland is rich of lava tubes that have formed in eruptions over the years. The caves we visit on the Black and blue tour are accessible to all that are comfortable walking on uneven surface but be prepared to have to crawl a little. After the cave exploration, you have time to grab lunch before moving on into the blue for your second adventure...
Snorkeling: Part two of this trip includes snorkeling in Silfra fissure, an otherworldly scene that is world famous for its heavenly shades of blue. The crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of pure weightlessness as you venture down the lazy current. The snorkeling is a relaxing yet exotic trip in an unbelievably beautiful environment between the two Eurasian and North American tectonic plates.
Minimum requirements: You can view the requirements on the online medical form all snorkelers must fill out before going on the tour which is sent by email upon booking. If answered YES on any questions in section 2 you must fill in the approval form signed by your Physician. Must be 16 years or older.
Note #1: Due to guide/customer ratio and Thingvellir National Park regulations this tour sells out frequently, we recommend you book this tour well in advance.
Note #2: Do you wear glasses? On the snorkeling tour you will be wearing a snorkeling mask and to see underwater there can be nothing in the way of the seal to keep them from filling up with water. Due to this, you cannot wear glasses underneath the mask. You will have to go without them, wear eye lenses or bring your own mask with prescription.
Note #3: Please note that this is a combo tour and it is not an option to meet us on location.
You need to know how to swim when you come snorkeling. Silfra has a current and you need to be comfortable swimming against the current if needed.
