Swim between the continents
...and walk through an underground lava river
The Magical Mystery Tour combines Snorkeling in the famous Silfra fissure in Thingvellir National Park and a cave exploration in a lava tunnel near by.
This tour is a bit different to a regular Silfra & Caving Tour in that way that we prepare ourselves with a some conscious breathing exercises & a meditation for each of the activities. If you are not used to these practices it might push you slightly out of your comfort zone... that´s where the magic happens... and it will deeepen your experience with these two natural wonders noticeably.
If you are lucky your guide will cook up a pot of ceremonial cacao and tell you a story which most likely includes elves.
Please be aware that both the snorkeling and the caving requires some guts and a decent fitness level.
The water in Silfra is just above freezing and your hands might get pretty cold. The cave is wild (not the boardwalk with lights in the ceiling type) and at points you need to balance over rocks, climb and even crawl... on top of that it might be slippery. If this has still not scared you away, you probably should sign up and experience a tour that might make for a good story back home.
Be reassured, we will take it slow & easy and provide you with good guidance and the needed gear for both activities which include, dry suit & undergarment, fins, hood, wet gloves, mask & snorkel for the snorkeling and a helmet, headlight, gloves and crampons (if necessary) for the cave.
Please bring real hiking boots, gloves and warm outdoor clothing.
