Snorkelling in Silfra was one of the best days of my life! Everything about the tour was well organised and explained to us. I hadn’t snorkelled before so was a bit anxious, but our guide Alexis was so helpful and reassured me on the tour....More

We were afraid to dive, but we chose the snorkeling instead, it was really magical, probably the clearest water in the world with unbelievable views and the depth is surreal in this lava pools, this is for all to see and explore!!! Magic!!

This is an absolute must-do on your trip to Iceland. I snorkelled whilst my boyfriend dived. Snorkelling was fantastic. You have to be prepared to be cold whilst waiting for your turn to get into the water. I actually thought being cold was part of...More

We had a 9 a.m. departure and ended up sleeping on the way there for 45 minutes. However, sunset in March is later, 18:30 I think. So you’ll have plenty of daylight. I would go with the 12:30 departure if you have the choice.
