    The experience is quite unique. Once you get used to how the drysuit feels, you can relax and enjoy the blue and the beauty of nature. The process felt simple because our instructor, Vanesa, was clear with instructions and knew how to explain all the steps and answer our questions. Thank you Vanesa for guiding us throughout the process and for sharing such good vibes. 🌊

    Very unique experience - a must for geology nerds. The whole tour was well run and our guide (Pau) was very knowledgeable and fun. They had the equipment for us to overcome the cold which was worth the experience alone.

    Snorkelling in Silfra between the tectonic plates was my favourite experience whilst in Iceland. The staff were brilliant from start to finish especially Rami and AJ your guides, they couldn’t do enough to make the trip the experience it was. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is looking to do this activity whilst visiting Reykjavik and high recommend using Dive.is.

    Guillame was an excellent guide and really looked after me. After I survived getting the drysuit on, the snorkeling itself was an amazing experience. It was a clear and beautiful view. My hands got very cold through the mittens and a little of my arm. The rest of me was dry and warm. It was not so cold it ruined the time or lasted afterward.

    Absolutely incredible! I've been snorkeling before but never in glacial water over a fissure crack in the Earth. My sister and I were traveling for our birthday and were guided by Fede, who was so kind and helpful. The other guide, Kris, gave a very thorough introduction to our wet suits, dry suits, and other gear that would accompany us into the water. Afterwards, they give you cookies and hot chocolate, which really hits the spot. They also take underwater pictures for you so you can focus on enjoying the indescribable experience.

    Just as they say - truly a once in a lifetime experience! Make sure you are able to snorkel before going. The water is very cold but the suit keeps you nice and warm. Expect your face and hands to feel the cold water (you get given gloves but water can seep inside them). Water is super clear and you can even drink it. The guide will take pictures which you can access online after the tour. We had hot chocolates handed out after the session. The weather was pleasant so the waiting time between getting ready and going into the water was not too bad.

    The lava cave was fascinating. It was very different to any other cave experience we have had and great if you're into geology. Got a chance to see what it was like with all the lights turned off too. Overall we had an amazing time.

    I don't write reviews, but I will this time. The SCUBA dive between the tectonic plates was an excellent experience. The dive was excellent because of its uniqueness, and it being in Iceland. But, the organization and service oriented professionalism of all the members at Dive.IS was also a large part of that. I had not Dry Suit dove for several years and thus decided to take a refresher course with them as well. Hence, I interacted with Dive.IS as a student, as well as, a dive tour participant. I was impressed and very satisfied with both . Additionally, the course was expertly conducted by our instructor Eeva. As events went, she was also our guide on the SILFRA dive. Again, expertly and professionally conducted. Thank you to all at Dive.IS for an excellent experience

    We enjoyed using Arctic Adventures for two of our tours while on a short stay in Reykjavik. The online process was easy and all available tours are thoroughly explained. Pick up locations are vast and and the vans being used are clearly identified and are both clean and safe. Drivers are friendly and informational.
    We chose to do both Silfra snorkeling and the Northern Lights tours.
    Silfra is a must when visiting Iceland. The whole experience from start to finish was amazing and was very organized. The equipment used is in excellent condition and all of the tour operators are very helpful while trying to get suited up for the adventure. The water was crystal clear and excitingly cold and we had a very thorough briefing in the shallow waters prior to Venturing out into the deeper water. Our guide made us all feel safe and prepared. The company takes a lot of fun GoPro photos of each participant while doing the snorkel tour and surprisingly these photos are uploaded later in the evening for you to pick and choose from while saving them to your computer device. There is no charge to download these photos to your device which is a huge bonus as coming from America, there would be an up charge if you wished to keep the photos. Not in Iceland… Not only is the country amazing, clean and safe, the people are top notch kind to everyone. These photos make great memories for you to keep in your scrapbook or to send to your friends as to show them the fun things you did while on vacation in Iceland.
    Next tour was a visit to see the northern lights. Our tour left at 9:30 PM and it was a beautiful night with clear skies. We drove out into the darkness and parked at the perfect spot. We waited and waited yet did not see the beautiful imagery of the dancing lights. The conditions were perfect however mother nature did not cooperate. Our driver took us to a next location but yet again we were not successful in seeing any of the lights. Our driver was very informational and it was a pleasure speaking with him and asking him questions about any and everything regarding Iceland. He was equipped with his nice camera in the event that we were to see the northern lights so that he could take photographs of us with the lights behind us. we tried a third location nearby yet again, no northern lights popping up anywhere. Arctic adventures is so awesome that when you don’t see the northern lights on your tour, they will honor your return on another night to try again at no extra charge. This is a very honorable offering as once again, if we were in the USA, we would not have been offered a do-over free of charge. I respect this about Arctic adventures.
    When I return later next month, I plan on trying the northern lights again as well as maybe doing the ice caves. I will definitely be using the same company as their reliability is on point! Everything about the transaction is easy which is a huge bonus! I highly recommend this company for those interested in a great tour operator.
