Amazing sites, snorkeling between the two tectonic plates of America and Eurasia. Approx 150M visibility! Water is very cold, but dry suits are provided. Highly recommended!

Snorkeling in Thingvellir was one of the best adventure/sight-seeing that I have done in Europe. The dry suit is a bit scary was I was never cold. Yes, the water is a bit chilly against your face and hands but unless you are taking underwater pictures you really don't have to put your hands in the water. You won't see... More

The dry suits were great and in good condition. The emails had us prepared. The idea was daunting, but the team was great and we had a unique experience.

Dive runs a professional, friendly operation. You won't regret taking advantage of this. Budget about 3 hours total.

Our instructor Camille was such a lovely lady and was very informative without having any trace of that "overenthusiastic camp counselor" attitude that I cannot withstand. In fact I think she found ME to be very enthusiastic because she kept mentioning it... And I was! I haven't snorkeled in eight years and am a terrible swimmer but none of that... More

My husband and I decided to go snorkeling in Silfra. At first we were a bit apprehensive about the temperature of the water but Camille, our guide provided wet and dry suits for the swim. It was truly an experience!! The water was pristine and Camille was very informative. She told us that the water we were swimming in has... More

Truly a surreal experience from the beginning. You look underwater and the water is so clear that you can't even tell you're looking underwater. The spectrum of colors too, were unbelievable--oranges, yellows, and blues like you've never seen before. It looks like you're on a different planet. The water is so clean that you can just drink it as your... More

It's as amazing as it looks in the photos. You do have to brave the cold, but that's not as bad as you might think as you get a 'dry suit' so only your hands and face get a chill. Well worth it for the experience!
