Silfra and caving - two perfect stops on the golden circle!
In just a few hours you will snorkel or dive in Silfra between two continental plates and take a walk through a tunnel created by the flow of glowing lava. You do not want to miss seeing the unique scenery on these adventures — it’s like nothing else on earth! These tours are a great addition to your self-drive Golden Circle tour or visit to Thingvellir Park.
The lava cave system you will visit is called Gjabakkahellir. According to folklore, the caves are entrances to the ninth world or Niflheimar.
At some points inside the cave we will have to climb and crawl a little, but this cave tour can be undertaken by everyone who feels comfortable in confined spaces and is fit to take a short hike. Please make sure to bring good shoes.
This is a perfect combination adventure for you if you want to get a truly in-depth view of our beautiful landscape and make the most of your day. You can read more about the Silfra Snorkeling tour here.
