Ever wanted to dive in a UNESCO World Heritage Site? Now is your chance with this tour!

What to expect?

Silfra is one of the top dive sites in the world and situated in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir, only about 50 km from Reykjavik. Silfra is a freshwater fissure about 60-63 meter deep, where you can almost see end to end as the water is so clear. The water is so pristine it feels like flying.By snorkeling in drysuit you will get protection from the cold water if the fissure as the drysuit is constructed from layers of insulating fabric. However, we always recommend you rather take the wetsuit as you will have so much more fun.

Adventure Vikings is the only Icelandic company that offers wetsuit snorkeling in Silfra and we can assure you that you won’t regret snorkeling in the wetsuit. Instead of just floating heavily on the surface like you do in a drysuit you will be able to dive into the fissure in the wetsuit.

No diving experience or diving license is needed.

What is included?

We will provide you with all necessary gear required for snorkeling.

  • Clothes suited to dress under a drysuit such as long warm underwear or sweat suit, warm socks
  • Warm clothes to wear prior and after the snorkeling
  • Towel
  • Lunch or Snack
  • Camera
  • You can rent a GoPro camera with us
