The tour

Silfra snorkel

The crystal clear water at this UNESCO world heritage site in Thingvellir national park will leave you speechless. The Silfra fissure is one of the highest rated dive sites in the world. During this journey, you will snorkel within a crack between the Eurasian and American continents. You’ll experience truly amazing views of the colorful underwater landscape, marine life, and geological formations. Silfra’s water, which filtrates from the nearby Langjokull glacier, is fresh, pristine, and drinkable at around 2°C - 4°C year round. Visibility can reach more than 100 meters, and swimming often feels more like flying.

This trip is for anyone who knows how to swim and is up for a unique adventure. We offer transportation with a pick up in Reykjavik, and provide you with a dry suit and full snorkel gear. The total length of the tour is approximately five hours, and includes an in-water snorkel lasting around 30 minutes. We’ll guide you through the main Silfra Big Crack, Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral, and Silfra Lagoon.


All year at 09:00 and 15:00. Pick up is one hour before.
