Silfra is a crack in the earth between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. This remarkable fissure is filled with the glacial water and with over 100 meters visibility underwater, it is among the clearest bodies of water on our planet. 

On the diving tour we will dress you in a dry suit and guide you through the four parts of the Silfra fissure. Floating through Silfra's crystal clear water is an otherworldly experience; the near-freezing water, astonishing colors, and sensation of flying provide a very unique environment for liquid meditation that you will never forget.  

After your diving tour, we will drive you to Laxnes Horse Farm (about 30 minutes) where you will join your horseback riding tour. Suitable for beginners and experts alike, a horseback riding tour on Icelandic horses is an adventure to remember. Get ready to be charmed by the breathtaking scenery of the Mosfell valley!

You can also choose the option that does not include transportation and use your own car to get to Silfra and to the horse farm.

Our trusted partners at Laxnes Horse Farm will drive you back to Reykjavik at the end of your tour. 


Pick up

We will pick you up at any centrally located accommodation in Reykjavík. Due to city council regulation, we are only allowed to pick up our customers from selected bus stops around the downtown Reykjavik area. You can find your closest bus stop on https://busstop.is/ - all you need to do is type your accommodation address in the top search bar.  

Diving in Silfra

Silfra is a crack in the Earth ripped open by the movement of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. The crystal clear glacial water filling the Silfra fissure has been filtered for decades through underground lava rock, providing over 100 meters of underwater visibility. The underwater scenery that you experience in Silfra is found nowhere else on Earth. 

We will do a single-dive tour that will take about 3 hours, of which 30-40 minutes are spent in the water.

Horseback Riding at Laxnes Horse Farms

Laxnes Horse Farm is located in the scenic Mosfell valley, only 30 minutes away from the Þingvellir National Park and Silfra. After your snorkeling tour, we will drive you to the farm or you will reach it with your own vehicle.

The farm is beautiful to visit and you can spend about one hour on the premises before the start of your horseback riding tour. The horses at Laxenes Farm are docile, used to interact with people and very well kept.

The horseback riding tour will take you across the Mosfell valley for about 2 hours.
