Snorkeling Silfra Under The Midnight Sun

Mysterious and quiet

Bright night snorkeling

The Icelandic summer is a fantastic and beautiful time. For visitors new to the northern bright summer nights, the midnight sun is an amazing experience. To combine this with snorkeling in the clearest water on this planet right between the North American and the Eurasian continents is extraordinary.
In the summer between June 1st and July 31st we offer our Snorkeling Silfra Tour with a departure at 7:30pm from Reykjavik. The tour is the same as the Snorkeling Silfra Day Tour, with the difference that we will snorkel in the evening when we have the National Park Thingvellir almost to ourselves.
The evening atmosphere in Thingvellir is quiet and mysterious and the special evening light will provide an unforgettable scene for your dive. The late departure time also makes it possible for you to do other activities during the day and use the evening as well.

NOTE ABOUT PICK UP:
Pick up service from Reykjavík is not available for all of the tours. If you need transportation, please be sure to pick a tour that gives you the option of pick up in Reykjavík.

Midnight sun tour was phenomenal

The midnight sun tour was absolutely incredible. Our guides were wonderful. The gear provided wasn't exactly intuitive, but they helped everyone suit up and gave a good detailed explanation of what to do and what to expect...
