It's pretty cool. But it takes hours to get 16 people into all the gear--dry suits, gloves, fins, masks, etc. For a 30 minute snorkel tour it seemed like it wasn't worth all the prep time and the discomfort of the gear. Also the guides were 25 minutes late to meet us in the parking lot of the info center.... More

I was afraid the snorkling would be very cold and boring (no wildlife). However, it was not cold at all due to my dry suit and the underwater scenery was beautiful. You are in the water for 30-45 minutes. The whole excursion takes longer but you need some time to get changed into your dry suit ;-) If you like... More

This should be added to everyone's bucket list!! It was the most incredible experience and I was warm and toasty the entire time. I still cannot get over the depth of visibility and how comfortable I was! Absolutely astonishing! I never wanted to get out of the water!! Upon meeting our fabulous guides with Arctic Adventures right at 3 pm,... More

What an exciting and different experience. We loved it!! The water is very cold....yes but the dry suit is very warm and the staff are fantastic helping you in and out of the suit, which is probably the hardest part of the tour. Once in the water there is a current that takes you along and the suits are buoyant... More

We went in April and it was very very cold the water but what an amazing experience. It is quite pricy but I would say worth it as it is something once in a lifetime and the colours are just amazing. The staff and friendly and helpful also. The only thing I would improve was that they took lots of... More

Snorkling in Silfra turned out to be a really nice experience. Even though the life beneath the surface is pretty much non-existing it is a magnificent and breathtaking view. I've never snorkeled or dived in any clearer water than this. Prepare to get a bit cold though!

We went snorkeling at Silfra last week. The weather was windy, and rainy - so cold! Once we were suited up it was actually quite comfortable. Getting into the water was challenging, as you have to wear your fins down the stairs. The staff was excellent. Swimming in the Silfa was a cool experience, however not a whole lot of... More

I made the dive at Silfra with Dive Iceland in January. The water was crystal clear and was only a degree or tow above freezing. The air temperature was -10 to -15 degrees C and the wind was blowing. It was my first drysuit dive. The staff at Dive.Is were great!! The helped me get my gear on, double checked... More

It is so unforgettable to do snorkeling when it was snowing, especially for people like me who was raised in a much warmer place without snow! But actually we were told that the water temperature is actually the same for winter and summer. Unlike other places I did snorkeling to meet the life under the sea, there is no fish... More
