Snorkeling Silfra under the Midnight sun tour with DIVE.IS in Iceland

Snorkeling Silfra Under The Midnight Sun

Mysterious and quiet private experience

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 in Silfra fissure right between the North American and the Eurasian continents is extraordinary. This tour was awarded 3rd place on the Best of the Best Traveler's choice award of 2023 by Tripadvisor as well as being in 5th place in 2022!

If you are looking for an ultra private experience, this might be your best bet as there are almost no crowds and very few scheduled tours at Silfra in the evenings.
We can proudly state that DIVE.IS will offer you the best service level at Silfra. Let us tell you why:

  • We have an extra person at Silfra assisting you before and after the snorkelling experience. We call this person Surface Support and they make sure your tour runs smoothly. They also provide extra safety for you and the guides.
  • We built our own changing room so that our guests have the opportunity to dress up inside a heated changing van.
  • After snorkeling in the cold water, we warm you up with hot cocoa and cookies.
  • Our guides are all experienced PADI divemasters and instructors that have been through professional training before running any of our tours.

In the summer between 1 June 1st and 31 August we offer our Snorkeling Silfra Tour as a private experience with a meeting time of 20:00 / 8pm at Silfra. The tour is the same as the Snorkeling Silfra Day Tour, with the difference that we will snorkel in the late 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 snorkel. The late start time also makes it possible for you to do other activities during the day and use the evening as well.

Please note this is a self-drive tour only, so you will meet us directly at the Silfra meeting point. Silfra fissure is located at Thingvellir National Park which is on the Golden circle, a very popular sightseeing route in Iceland. Other sightseeing locations on the Golden circle are Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir hot spring and Kerið crater.

Snorkeling with Silvia

Incredible experience! The tour was led by Silva who was very kind, funny, and patient. She answered all of our (many) questions and made sure everyone was comfortable throughout the tour regardless of their experience snorkeling in dry suits. Be sure to opt for the photo package if you do not own a go pro of your own to capture this amazing experience.
