We had a great time on this snorkeling tour! We were first time snorkelers but out tour guide, Deyan, was helpful and patient. He showed us the basics and helped us learn to free dive. The booking includes the guide taking pictures of you snorkeling and Deyan got some great shots for us. We did this in January. We chose the wetsuit because we wanted to be able to swim down more (drysuit is boyant and keeps you at the surface). It was cold but tolerable up until the last five minutes in the water and then actually taking off the wet suit to change was freezing! Overall we thought the wet suit was worth sacrifing some warmth. We also opted to meet at the location. The email gave great instructions on where to go and park. Found it without any trouble. Great experience! Would highly recommend!

Hello Passenger681994

We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the Silfra Snorkeling tour and had a positive experience with us.
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We truly do appreciate each and every one and will make sure to forward your kind words to your guide Deyan. Opting for the wetsuit is a bit colder but truly has its advantages, being able to dive down and explore Silfra further. Wa are also very glad to hear that the meet-on-location instructions given were good and that you managed to find your way to the location without any trouble.

We hope to see you soon again in your future visits in Iceland on more adventurous tours.

Best Regards
The Adventure Vikings team

Our snorkeling adventure was great, there is some amazing site to see. The water was the clearest I have ever seen. Our Guide/instructor/photographer; Deyan was very informative about where and what we would be doing and seeing. Five Stars would recommend

My teenage son and I are on a short trip to Reykjavik and really wanted to try this. Adam was our guide - and I couldn't have picked a better one. I have to admit as a mom I was a little worried about the cold. BUT Adam was super friendly and positive, told us everything we all needed to know (there were 6 in the group), was very attentive in and out of the water, and also treated my son like a peer not a kid. Hot chocolate and ginger snaps were a nice touch at the end. Loved every minute of this experience and would absolutely recommend to others!!

We did our Lavatunnel-Tour in mid January and the entrance of the cave was totally filled with snow. Nevertheless, our guide Ivan was amazing and dug a whole for us to get in. Really an adventure and the cave was also worth seeing !!!

It is not unusual, especially in the mid Icelandic winter, that the enterance gets filled with snow. Then of cause there is only one way to get in and out and that is to dig a hole such as Ivan did. We hope that this only added to the adventure and made the experience even better for you.

We hope to see you soon again in your future visits in Iceland on more adventurous tours.

Wow! What an amazing group. Adam our guide was fantastic, nothing was too much trouble, he was very informative and told us so much about Iceland and it’s heritage.
Seeing the Silfra was awesome and crystal clear.
Getting in and out of the dry suit was hard in the cold but Adam helped at every stage.

If you’re considering this trip just do it! Once in a lifetime experience
