Silfra - Thingvellir - Gullfoss - Geysir
Get ready for a sublime day in the heart of Iceland! We will pick you up in Reykjavík and drive the scenic route of the must-see Golden Circle. You will visit the beautiful National Park Thingvellir, the active gesery and geothermal area of Geysir, and Gullfoss, one of the most beautiful and powerful waterfalls in Iceland. All of these sights are a magnificent display of the power and beauty of nature and shouldn’t be missed by any visitor in Iceland.
At Thingvellir lake you will snorkel through the famous Silfra fissure. A snorkeling adventure in the famous Silfra fissure is an unforgettable experience, there is a reason TripAdvisor chose our Snorkeling Tour the No 4 experience in the world!
We can proudly state that DIVE.IS will offer you the best service level at Silfra. Let us tell you why:
- We have an extra person at Silfra assisting you before and after the snorkelling experience. We call this person Surface Support and they make sure your tour runs smoothly. They also provide extra safety for you and the guides.
- We built our own changing room so that our guests have the opportunity to dress up inside a heated changing van.
- After snorkeling in the cold water, we warm you up with hot cocoa and cookies.
- Our guides are all experienced PADI divemasters and instructors that have been through professional training before running any of our tours.
Silfra is a crack in the earth that has been ripped open by the movement of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. Glacial water that has been filtered underground for decades fills this fissure with crystal clear water, creating an underwater world unlike anywhere else on earth. The underwater visibility is over 100 meters, making it one of the clearest bodies of water on earth. You will see all of the majestic parts of Silfra: Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral and Silfra Lagoon.
After a day full of action and sightseeing we will drive back to Reykjavik to close the Golden Circle and you will surely have no problem dozing off in our comfortable vans.
If you want to share the experience with your friends or family who are scuba divers, you can combine this tour with divers as well as non-water participants. Ask us!

Snorkeling & Golden Circle Tour with Fraser!!
This excursion was the highlight of our trip to Iceland!! Fraser was our snorkeling and tour guide - he was incredible. Fraser made sure we were all properly prepared for snorkeling and ensured we all had an amazing experience. After snorkeling in the morning, we continued on to the Golden Circle. Fraser made sure we hit all of the important stops along the way, but also gave us options to make sure we saw everything we wanted to. We were fortunate to have a small group (4) which really made the entire day feel like a private tour. Many thanks for Fraser for an unbelievable experience in Iceland!!!

Frequently asked questions about our Snorkeling Silfra & Golden Circle Combo Tour
Gibt es irgendwelche Souvenirs?

Do I need to be able to swim in order to take part in Snorkeling?
Even though the dry suits are very buoyant and keep you afloat, it is a requirement that all participants must be able to swim and feel comfortable in water to join the tour. This is for your own safety and comfort. You do however not need to be a very strong swimmer, merely able to swim and be comfortable in the water.
Is there somewhere to leave my valuables?
We do not recommend bringing valuables on tour with you, unless you need them, but keys, phones, wallets, cameras and such things can be safely locked away in our cars throughout the duration of the activity
