I had booked the snorkeling tour with Dice.IS via Extreme Iceland for my first day in Iceland. It was a great start to my vacation. All the questions I had initially were promptly and thoroughly answered via e-mail by Laura. The pick-up was on time and I was the only guest on the bus with the guides, since everyone else... More

It was an amazing experience, thanks to our guide Ségo, a great little women with lot of energy. I'll nerver forget this snorkeling, the water was so pure and very tasty (I'm not jocking !) and it was not so cold (obviously I'm jocking), but with the drysuit and the hot chocolate after it's ok. Thanks again to everybody and... More

If I went again, I woudl not do this one again. The Silfra exploration in winter by -1 degree celsius is nice in that it makes you try the dry suit. However TOO expensive (count 250$ per person) and in the end not so fantastic. The dive is maximum 15 meters, lasts 20 minutes and is really just about going... More

Ok so it's cold, but you get over it when you see the colours underwater. It looks other worldy underwater in Silfra. So beautiful. The visibility is incredible and I found that the rocks all looked like they had faces (perhaps my imagination running wild on the adrenalin!) and the scenery is stunning. It was my coldest ever scuba dive... More

You scuba dive in the continental rift. Get a photo of yourself 30ft underwater touching Europe with one hand and North America with the other. Viz is effectively infinite; the water is that clear but don't expect to see much besides rocks.

I done it last week and I was so excited to do that, I really enjoyed the experience but the water was so cold, you can use the equipment but the hands and heat will be wet any way, after that you don't have nothig to dry yourself so is really really cold, by the way I recomend that because...

Anything that has you snorkeling between two continents, tectonic plates of North America and Eurasia to be precise, is a bucket list worthy activity. Imagine that for water cooler conversation when you return from vacation. A few things to know before you go. 1) it is freezing cold water, like think hypothermia cold, frozen cheeks, blue lips cold, mascara running... More

We did the snorkelling trip with DIVE.is and can only recommend it. The water is crystal clear, and the lack of fish is compensated by the rocks formation and funny looking algae. For those used to tropical waters like us, it is interesting to wear a dry suit and see how it works. The equipment was mostly well maintained, but... More

Did the snorkeling trip with Dive.is and it was pretty amazing. I went in early March so it was obviously pretty cold, but the light snow and white skies made a pretty awesome backdrop and heavy contrast to the bright, almost tropical looking blues underneath the water. You probably already know by now that the water is runoff from a... More

We followed the tour operator into a car park, where we were given a briefing on the fundamental aspects of wearing and controlling the buoyancy of a dry suit. There was a surprisingly large group of participants for both the snorkeling and the diving tour. Our group consisted of five persons and two instructors. The other three participants including two... More
