Snorkeling in Silfra Tour – Meet on location in Thingvellir National Park

Snorkel in the world´s clearest waters

For many who come to Iceland, snorkeling is not the first thing that comes to mind. Our Silfra Snorkeling tour is not just for experienced snorkelers though.

Silfra, situated in Thingvellir National Park, is an underwater fissure considered to be one of the world’s foremost snorkeling and diving destinations. The purity of the crystal clear waters ensures total visibility here, attracting enthusiasts from all over the world. Silfra fissure or rift is located on the mid-atlantic ridge, the boundary between the North American and Eurasion tectonic plates and has formed as these plates diverged. The plates diverge an estimated 2cm per year so in effect silfra grows larger every year.

On this silfra drysuit snorkeling tour, suitable for beginners, our passionate, expert instructors introduce you to this underwater dreamworld. Silfra snorkeling in Thingvellir National park can also serve as a wonderful add-on to your Golden Circle exploration.
