Why should everyone try snorkeling in Silfra?
The incredible biodiversity of Silfra has led to it becoming an important site for scientific research, particularly in ecology. It has been designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in recognition of its unique geological features and cultural importance. However, despite its natural beauty and scientific significance, many travelers are still unaware of its existence. This is why it is so important to spread the word about this hidden gem! With that in mind, here are a few reasons why you need to visit Silfra:
It's One of The Most Beautiful Places in the World
Silfra is truly one of nature's marvels, and it's easy to understand why so many people are drawn to the area. The unique rock formations and beautiful colors of the lakes provide a truly surreal experience that is both calming and mesmerizing. Whether you choose to snorkel or scuba dive, you'll feel like you've traveled to a different world while exploring the underwater paradise of Silfra. Best of all, you don't have to travel too far to experience this incredible place - in fact it’s only a short drive from Reykjavik! This makes it perfect for a day trip, so you can explore this fantastic site without committing to a longer trip.
It's So Much More Than Just A Dive Site
In addition to being a popular tourist destination for divers and snorkelers, Silfra also has a number of natural attractions that are perfect for visitors of all ages. There are a number of hiking trails that will take you through the beautiful surrounding countryside, where you can enjoy spectacular views of the lakes. You can also visit the Gullfoss waterfall, which is just a short drive away from Silfra. For those who enjoy fishing, the lake is also an excellent spot for fly fishing. Whether you're looking for adventure or just want to relax in one of the most beautiful places on Earth, Silfra has something for everyone!
It Offers Incredible Views Of The World Beneath Water
One of the main reasons that people choose to visit Silfra is the opportunity to view the world beneath the surface. The clear waters of the lake allow visitors to gaze into the abyss as they swim through the ancient fissure. The water is so clear that you can see more than 100 meters down where the cliffs aren’t in the way.
It's a Place For Unique Photos And Memories
Another reason that people love visiting Silfra is that it is one of the best places in Iceland to take photos and videos. The water is extremely clear, making it ideal for taking stunning photos beneath the waves. Many people choose to commemorate their trip to Silfra by taking a photo of themselves beside the famous rift - the thin blue water dividing the continent of North America from Europe can be seen in the background of many popular images of the lake. These photographs make wonderful souvenirs that can be treasured for years to come. It's also a great place for selfies!
It's An Ideal Spot For A Day Trip
There are many things you can do while you're visiting Silfra and the surrounding areas. You can spend the day exploring the beautiful countryside or relaxing on the shores of the crystal-clear lake. Both options offer plenty of fun for the whole family and make for an unforgettable vacation. If you'd rather spend your time in the water, you can join one of the guided tours that offer scuba diving and snorkeling experiences for the entire family. The water is around the same temperature for the whole year, around 2-4° C.
Tröll offers a snorkeling tour between the continents where there are underwater photos included. You get all the equipment and hot cocoa after the snorkel. You can also buy a package with a bus tour from your hotel in Reykjavik to the site. Also, if you love waterfalls, you can also take the Golden Circle package! Explore a part of history and take a dip in the crystal clear waters while getting to watch and enjoy all the sights below the water's surface.
