Discover the underwater landscape of Iceland on our diving tours
Iceland does not only offer you an amazing landscape above the water but also under the water. This country is known for its crystal clear water and its volcanos which offer you a breath taking experience and views. Why not spot this beauty and go on a diving day tour in Iceland? Let’s put on a dry suit and enjoy the clear water.
Our most popular diving day trip is the diving day tour to the Silfra. It belongs on every bucket list of a certified diver. Some other amazing diving day tours in Iceland are our day trips to Lake Kleifarvatn and the Ocean diver tour.
Only a few days on Iceland and want to make the most out of it? We help you to use your time in Iceland efficiently and not only dive the Silfra every single day. Join us on our combo day tours. Our diving day tour to the Silfra and the Golden Circle is for example a great way to tick the essential Golden Circle Tour box while dive Silfra on the same day. If you want a bit more action, the combo diving day tours with whale watching, horseback riding or discovering one of the mysterious lava caves is a great option.
Summer special: When you’re in Iceland during summer we highly recommend you to take your diving day tour in Silfra under the midnight sun. You are going to dive the Silfra in the late evening with only a few people around . The National Park Thingvellir reveals a very special summer night atmosphere.
Winter special: For all those brave ones visiting Iceland in winter we offer diving day tours to Silfra combined with a Northern Lights Tour. A absolute highlight for many visitors in Iceland every year at this time.
Note: To take part in any scuba diving tour in Iceland you need to have dry suit diving experience. But no worries! We offer the PADI Dry Suit Diver Speciality Course every day.

Frequently asked questions about our Diving Day Tours
How far is it to Silfra from Reykjavik?
It is about 60 km from Reykjavik to Silfra and it takes a little less than one hour to drive the distance by car, given the weather conditions are good. If you choose to drive to Silfra yourself and don‘t know the way, we recommend you to study the map before you hit the road. Silfra is located in Þingvellir National Park, which is a bit different from other national parks. At a point, when you turn into road 36, you will feel like you are driving into the middle of nowhere. Please do not turn around, just keep going straight until you see our company cars which are parked at the Silfra Meeting Point, you then drive a little further to parking lot P5 to park. If at anytime you feel lost please do not hesitate to call our office for help.
I forgot my certification card. Is there any way to look my certification up online?
If you are PADI or SSI certified we can often look you up online. We need you full name (incl. middle name) and your birth date, as it appears on your certification card, before the tour starts. Please be aware that both PADI and SSI sometimes have glitches in their website/data imput, which results in your records not being findable. If you are certified with any other organization, we are unfortunately unable to look you up. In either of these cases you will not be able to participate. It is therefor best to always carry your dive cards, or to sign up for PADI e-cards, which are stored on an App on your phone. If you have only recently certified, the temporary card that is emailed to you by your instructor is acceptable proof.
What type of dive certification(s) do I need in order to participate in one of your scuba dive tours?
To join any of our scuba dive tours you need to:
- be at the level of PADI Open Water Diver or above. Equivalent dive certifications from other dive organizations are sufficient.
- have a dry suit dive certification OR 10 logged dry suit dives within the last two years of the dive tour date and be able to provide written proof from a diving instructor of these dry suit dives.
