    Itinerary

    Be picked up from your Reykjavík accommodation (if option selected) in morning or afternoon, or meet at Thingvellir National Park, about 50 km from Reykjavik. Once you have met your PADI divemaster certified guide, he or she will be going through the procedure and safety measures of your tour. After, you will put on your gear and head to an exotic underwater canyon/fissure, Silfra, created as the continental plates drift apart at a rate of about 2 cm per year. Silfra is a freshwater fissure where you can see at least 100 meters ahead of you. The water here is so clear and pristine it feels like flying. The approximate time in the water is around 40 minutes. By snorkeling in wetsuit you will be more flexible to dive under and free-dive. Therefore you should bring your bathing suit to wear underneath the wetsuit. End the snorkeling tour by warming up with some hot chocolate before you head back.

    Stop At:

    • Thingvellir National Park, Thingvellir Iceland

    Very nice to see the photo's later. I would not recommend a wetsuit end of December. The guide was very nice, they help with your wetsuit, because that s not easy in the cold weather in December. After the dive there is a hot drink, that was very welcome.

    The water was absolutely beautiful! We opted for the wetsuits for a once in a lifetime experience of being able to dive beneath the water. The water was quite near freezing but I'm so glad we did it over the drysuits! Deyan was a wonderful, knowledgeable guide!
