Silfra is one of the world’s most dramatic snorkeling sites—it’s a glacier meltwater-filled rift formed by the drift of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. This tour makes snorkeling the rift as easy as possible by including a guide, dry suit and snorkeling equipment, and Silfra entrance fees. After you’ve snorkeled, you’re offered hot chocolate and cookies.
What to Expect
You will meet us at the meeting point located in Silfra, Thingvellir National Park. The tour is approximately 3 hours from arrival to the end of the tour.

Upon arrival at Silfra, your guide will give you your dry suit and snorkeling equipment, and explain how to use this equipment. The guide will also give you advice on how to stay warm and comfortable during your 30 to 40 minute snorkeling tour of the Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral, and Silfra Lagoon sites. All participants need to have read and signed the Snorkeling Silfra Medical Statement(view here:  https://www.dive.is/wp-content/uploads/2017/03/Silfra-snorkeling-medical_Final.pdf ) and sign our liability release form at the start of the tour (view here:  https://www.dive.is/wp-content/uploads/2017/02/AA_LIABILITY_SNORKELING_2016.pdf )

After the tour you will be offered a hot chocolate and cookies to warm up.

Ants: Snorkling Guide

The guide was absolutely fantastic - and our guide Ants is a major reason for that. From the first moment, it was clear that Ants was incredibly competent, engaging and chill. We could not have asked for a better guide!

Lots of hiking right in the park. Not to mention a UNESCO world heritage site. Plenty of beauty to take in.
