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

This was an amazing experience. Surprisingly was warmer in the water in the dry suit provided than I was for the majority of my trip on land. Crystal clear (drinkable) water and beautiful surrounding scenery all around.

No picture will capture the intensity of the colors. And yes, the walk to and from the water is cold but you completely forget about it once you jump in-mesmerizing.

Went snorkeling in March in the snow. Once you're in your two suits (dry & wet) you forget about the cold. A thin thermal layer a must, as well as a few pairs of socks- I wore three! Your hair will get wet and your hands through the neoprene gloves and balaclava hat so keep this in mind. After 35-40... More

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
