Snorkeling Silfra & Horseback Riding

The awesome Silfra fissure and beautiful Icelandic horse

Horseback riding and Silfra in one day

Fit two uniquely Icelandic experiences into one day! You will first visit the the magical fissure Silfra, the spot where the earth has been ripped open by the movement of tectonic plates. The fissure marks the divide between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates and it is filled with crystal clear glacial water. The underwater visibility is over 100 meters, which opens up spectacular views and mesmerising colors. You can read more about the Snorkeling Silfra Day Tour here.

After snorkeling in Silfra we will warm up with a cup of hot chocolate and cookies before we take you to the Laxnes Horse Farm, where you will spend the rest of the day on a pleasurable ride through the beautiful valley of Mosfellsdalur. Horse enthusiasts will already know that the Icelandic horses are an extremely special and protected breed, but beginners are also welcome to join the horseback riding tour.

At Laxnes you will be provided with riding equipment before you are handed one of their friendly and sure-footed Icelandic horses suitable for both beginners and experienced riders.

This tour will surely be an enjoyable experience to remember.

Snorkeling+Horseback Riding=A great day!

My 2 friends and I did the morning Snorkeling followed by the afternoon horseback riding. It was a truly unique experience. Our guide, Rudi, picked us up and then there was some confusion about where the other person he was picking up was staying. It was great to see the amount of effort that went into finding this person and making sure they wouldn't be left behind. Rudi was great! He told us stories and made sure we were entertained the whole time. He really helped make it a special trip. They drove us over to Laxnes Horse Farm after our snorkeling and we enjoyed a 2 hour horseback ride. An all around great experience! Definitely would recommend!
