This unforgettable small group tour takes you around Iceland's famous Golden Circle calling at Thingvellir National Park, Gullfoss waterfall, and Stokkur Geysir as you go! There's also the chance to go snorkelling between two continents in the world's clearest waters at the Silfra fissure!
The Silfra Fissure is located in Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Once our minibus arrives there, you will take a short journey through the volcanic, moss-laden fields of the park. Here, you will listen as your friendly and experienced PADI Divemaster guide provides a safety briefing.
Later, you will receive all of the necessary equipment for snorkelling in Silfra, including neoprene hoods and gloves, a thermal undersuit, a drysuit and, of course, a mask, snorkel and fins. This equipment will keep you buoyant throughout your time in the fissure, as well as offering protection against the glacial water.
Once in the water, your eyes will meet the incredible shades of blue so prevalent in the fissure, as well as the natural under-water flora canyon walls. As you are swimming, you will have the opportunity to move across continents, as you will be switching back and forth from both the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, which is one of Thingvellir’s most famous characteristics.
Swimming further, you will meet Silfra Hall, which is the widest section on the fissure and the majestic Silfra Cathedral, it’s the deepest section. Even more, the stunning shallow oasis will be presented before your eyes at the end, “Real Blue Lagoon”.
