Thank you for this wonderful experience, Luis! Totally enjoyed the view under water and being between the US and Europe at the same time. Hit chocolate was a bless and the pictures will hang in our Livingroom from now on.
I highly recommend the dry suit for the tour as the water is freaking cold and you will enjoy the view more when you’re not freezing all the time!

We traveled as a group of 6, with 5 of us doing the drysuit snorkel experience. The two guides were fab, with a great sense of humor and wealth of local knowledge to share while prepping for the swim. It was hilarious just getting into the drysuits, and no amount of verbal warning or common sense could prepare us for the cold of getting in or out of the water. Luckily, there were blankets and hot chocolate waiting- but it is really important to layer up (and then have spare layers, especially socks) since we were travelling in October! The sights underwater were phenomenal, and to know we were in the fissure between tectonic plates in glacier melt was a feeling like nothing else. It really is a once in a lifetime experience, and our extra member wishes they had joined us too after watching!

Rob and Luis were very professional and friendly. I am not very experienced at snorkeling and Rob checked on me frequently but didn’t make me feel rushed. I felt very safe with both Rob and Luis. I loved the small group size too. The pictures Rob took were awesome!

My older son and husband opted for the wetsuits. They were very happy with their choice. Although you do feel the water temperature they felt like it was a good trade off to have the ability to actually swim and dive. They did feel like they were flying but at the end they were ready to get out and get warmed up.

My younger son and myself opted for the dry suits. The suits are very tight around your neck and wrists but you get used to it. Water did fill out gloves and sneak down my neck at times. I wore 2 pair of wool socks, a long sleeve athletic shirt and leggings. I wish I had brought an extra shirt for after because my sleeve did get wet.

The scenery was worth any uncomfortableness and pictures cannot do this amazing experience justice.

Kicked off my Iceland trip with snorkeling in the Silfra fissure. It was a bucket list experience knowing I was between two tectonic plates. Kevin was a great guide who kept us smiling and laughing before and after the snorkel (the hardest part) and in water made sure to let us know he was snapping a shot. Recommend this trip for the adventure seeker!

We booked a Silfra snorkelling adventure last minute and so glad we chose Adventure Vikings! The group of people on the snorkel adventure was kept small, I think only 12 people and we were split between two guides so everyone was well looked after. Ivan was our guide and he was funny, welcoming and made sure everyone was ok during the tour. It was so good that they took photos for us too! One less thing to try and do and allowed us to really enjoy Silfra.

Silfra was absolutely amazing. I’ve never snorkeled in such clear (AND DRINKABLE!) water before :). Ivan provided lots of history behind the place surrounding Silfra and the ever so moving Eurasian and NA tectonic plates.

I did a lot of research on the Silfra snorkel in Iceland and ended up going with Adventure Vikings and am so glad I did. Before going, I had to change the date twice and they did it without question. We also needed to be back to go to the airport and they made sure to drop us off first. Our driver/guide Gretar was awesome! They were super professional and gave a very in depth safety briefing before going in. They had warm changing vans and all of the guides were friendly and helpful. We went in small groups of 6 so it really felt like we were on our own and had plenty of time to see everything. You get hot chocolate to warm up after the swim. The pictures they provide (for free!) were awesome because there is no way I would have been able to take any on my own with that water temp! I highly recommend this company if you are looking for something different and cool to try in Iceland. The water is so beautiful.

We were a little nervous today before our Silfra snorkelling experience given the minus temperatures but our guide Kevin put us totally at ease. He attended to everyone’s requests and made sure our equipment was on properly, his relaxed attitude made us feel nothing was too much trouble. The experience surpassed our expectations and it was truly a great family adventure even in the cold. Thank you Kevin, we really hope you get that beer!!

The experience was amazing, all thanks to our guide Dori. We went on a sunny but windy morning and were unbothered by the weather. Our guide ensured our suits fit, and even helped my dad who had difficulty finding the right size. Once in the water l, we were unbothered by the cold water and saw amazing views. Dori took photos throughout the trip of us snorkeling and exploring the terrain. Would recommend this during any trip to iceland.
