Private snorkeling hot spring tour with DIVE.IS in Iceland

Private Snorkeling Hot Spring tour

A unique snorkeling experience

Snorkel in bubbles coming from a geothermal hot spring, similar to a champagne glass with no other people around.

Our private tours include a private guide, the snorkeling tour and all necessary equipment for snorkeling. During our private tours we usually go outside the busiest time (at Silfra) on a start time that fits your schedule, whether it is early in the morning or late in the evening.

Kleifarvatn is a lake in the stunning landscape of Reykjanes peninsula, only a short drive away from the newly erupting volcano in Geldingadalir. We snorkel over a hot spring about 2 meters below the surface. We’ve heard this sensation described as similar to ‘snorkeling in a glass of Champagne’. The fact that we are snorkeling in a caldera is also impressive.

On the snorkeling tour we will meet you at Seltún geothermal area.

We drive to Lake Kleifarvatn and dress you in a dry suit on the shore of the lake. Then we guide you over the hot spring, with its white and yellow sulfur deposits on the lake floor.

When back on land we will enjoy some refreshments at the shore before moving on to Seltún, a nearby high temperature geothermal area on land. In Seltún we will walk along the boiling mud pots and colorful sulfur deposits before saying our goodbyes.

If you choose the pick up option, your private guide will pick you up in Reykjavík and drive with you to Kleifarvatn. During the one-hour drive, your guide will provide you with background information about the unique geology and cultural history of Iceland.

If you want to avoid the crowds and have Lake Kleifarvatn all to yourself, this is the experience for you.
