The Silfra Fissure is located in Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage site. Once you arrive there, you will listen as your experienced certified PADI Dive Master provides a safety briefing. Then, you will receive all of the necessary equipment for snorkeling in Silfra, including neoprene hoods and gloves, a thermal undersuit, a drysuit, and of course mask, snorkel and fins. This equipment will keep you floating throughout your time in the fissure, as well as offering a protection against the cold glacier water. Once in the water, your eyes will meet the incredible shades of blue so prevalent in the fissure, as well as the natural underwater flora of canyon walls.
As you are swimming you will have the opportunity to move across continents, as you will be swimming between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates, which is one of Thingvellir’s most famous characteristics. You will meet Silfra Hall, which is the widest section on the fissure and then the majestic Silfra Cathedral, its deepest section. Even more, the stunning shallow oasis will be presented before your eyes at the end, “the Real Blue Lagoon”.
Upon exiting the water, you’ll be invited to warm up with hot chocolate with your friendly guide. After the tour is over you will receive the free GoPro underwater photos in your email.
You get the option to book a transfer from Reykjavik as an extra.
