Snorkeler portrait in Silfra Iceland

Snorkeling Silfra & Golden Circle

All the highlights in one day

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 Silfra, 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!!!
