Must do experience . It is a very unique thing to do in Iceland . Check that your suit fits well because water can easily go inside and you will freeze .

We did the evening (5pm) trip and it was wonderful. It was a beautiful evening, the guides (Adrien, Anne and Siobhan from Dive.Is) were very friendly and enthusiastic and extremely well-organized - they spent a lot of time helping everyone get into and out of the suits but it was all done very efficiently so no waiting around. The actual... More

Basically the only place in the world you can dive between two tectonic plates and the views underwater are awesome but one of the most expensive dives at around $145 Canadian per dive.

Tina From Argentina who works with Artic Adventure was great! She was very helpful and friendly and made sure that all of our group was having fun and were comfortable. The water was very cold when we went in August and it felt like my lips had frost bite, however the rest of my body was fine as they provide... More

The guides spent plenty of time making sure we were all suited up properly, which included insulated dry suits. The trip itself is very peaceful, and the insulated suits protect you from the glacial waters, which are very clear. It is definitely a bucket list thing to do. I would recommend this to friends.

I booked a diving trip with Scuba Island. They pick you up at the hotel, provide transfers to the national park, set up the gear, and give a detailed briefing of the geology. This is a fantastic dive site with clear visibility between two tectonic plates going out into a lake. Expect really cold water conditions of around 3 C... 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
