Well, not quite freezing, but close! At 2 degrees Celsius it's just above ice, but the water is pure and crystal-clear, and so, so blue! Was a really cool experience that I would... read more

Well, not quite freezing, but close! At 2 degrees Celsius it's just above ice, but the water is pure and crystal-clear, and so, so blue! Was a really cool experience that I would recommend to anyone. You wear dry suits with thermals, but I recommend bulking up with extra layers (though make sure you can still move). Two pairs of... More

A dutch speaking guide! Great snorkelling! A bit difficult to dive to the bottom in a dry suit 😉 Beautiful views in the underwater world between the tectonic plates! Thanx for an amazing experience!

Well run and organized trip. Kit is in good condition and we didn't get as cold as we thought. Face was numb after a few minutes but other than our hands getting cold we stayed dry throughout.

We have booked a combined Golden Circle and Silfra Snorkelling Trip from Reykjavik. Around 5pm we were handed over at the Thingvellir visitor center to Dive.IS who operate snorkelling trips in Silfra and who were already waiting for us. Our guides Michal and AJ were super friendly, helpful, considerate and had a good sense of humour! First we were lead... More

I had the great idea to book a snorkeling tour in the middle of winter in 34ºF water temperatures. Besides ending the tour with frozen fingers, seeing the Silfra is well worth it. The water is so pure, you can drink it (do this, it's delicious). Our guide was hilarious and kept us laughing the entire time. Definitely recommend this,... More

Went diving with Dive IS and it did not disappoint. Our guides, Michal and Alexis, were super friendly and helpful. They professionally talked us through the steps of diving with a dry suit and over the details concerning diving in cold water. The dive site was nothing short of amazing and I would recommend it in a heartbeat. An unforgettable... More

We had a brilliant experience with the Snorkelling in the Silfra tour (booked through Extreme Iceland). Our guides were extremely knowledgeable and friendly, putting everyone at ease through the always interesting process of getting into and out of a drysuit. Total tour was about 45 mins in the water, and it gets quite chilly by the end. Stunning underwater rock... More

Fantastic diving site. We visited Silfra in February for diving and had a couple of days that we made a few diva at this wonderful place. The clearest water coming from the glazier in to Silfra. 2 degrees Celsius but so nice. Don't miss this place if you go to Island. We also visited Gullfoss, Gejser and some other places.... More

This one of two guided tours during our trip to Iceland, we paid for pick-up from Reykjavik for the evening tour, definitely a wise decision cause the pick-up knew how to navigate the traffic so we were not holding up the group at the meeting spot in Thingvellir. All the tour guides were extremely friendly, and of course, the snorkeling... More

I'm an avid diver and snorkeler and what you'll see and experience will be like nothing else. Our guides Neil and Meete from Arctic Adventures were awesome and entertained us while really helping everyone out with their dry suits. It takes awhile to get everyone suited properly, and you wanna do it right or else water will get into your... More
