 While most people don't associate Iceland with snorkeling, the cool Nordic country actually offers plenty of underwater marvels -- you'll just need a wetsuit. With this experience, a professional guide will take you to Silfra, a fissure between North America and Europe in Thingvellir National Park that marks where the two continental plates are slowly drifting apart. You and your group will get a chance to spend around 40 minutes in the water before heading back to shore.

Combining snorkeling and caving gives you the ultra experience of Icelandic nature. You will explore the hidden world of the lava fields on foot and underwater. The cave we will visit is called Leiðarendi. The 900 meter long lava tube offers unique rock formations, such as stalactites and shelves.

Some light crawling may be required yet Leiðarendi cave has a rather easy access to the underworld wonders of the Icelandic lava fields.

Snorkel in between two continents at one of the top diving sites in the planet! Silfra is located in Iceland’s National Park, Thingvellir, and is a fissure that was formed by the divergent tectonic drift of the Eurasian and North American plates. What makes Silfra exceptionally unique is not only its geological significance, but it is also world-renowned for its crystal clear, fresh glacial water.

No diving experience or diving license is needed for this experience, and all the gear that you need is provided.

The Golden Circle tour mainly consists of three stunning locations, Thingvellir National Park, Geysir Geothermal Area and Gullfoss Waterfall.

During this small-group (only 8 participants per guide), half-day guided tour, you’ll embark on a scenic hike through picturesque Reykjadalur, followed by an optional soak in a thermal hot spring. Escape the capital and enjoy a short drive into the stunning valley in one of the island’s most popular hiking destinations. Then, reward your efforts with a dip in the piping hot river.

We had an amazing experience. We got a very detailed explanation about snorkeling equipment before going into the water and Ivan, Bart and Piotr were really nice and funny. I'd do this everytime again!

Our Guide Rob was great. Water was just what I expected at 2-3 degrees celsius. The water was just fine with the long underwear and socks I wore. Thanks for the fun.
