Silfra is a fissure between the North American and Eurasian continental plates. Silfra constantly fills with glacial water that has been trickling through underground lava rock for 30 years. This remarkable crack between two tectonic plates is therefore filled with the clearest water on our planet, allowing for over 100 meters visibility.
On the snorkeling tour we will dress you in a dry suit and guide you through the four parts of the Silfra fissure. Floating through Silfra's crystal clear water is an otherworldly experience; the near-freezing water, astonishing colors, and sensations of flying provide a very unique environment for liquid meditation that you will never forget.
When you arrive at the Þingvellir National Park, you will have to park your car at parking lot P5. You will then take a short walk to the Silfra parking lot, where we will welcome you and give you a detailed briefing of the snorkeling tour. Here you will also get dressed into our top quality snorkeling gear.
We have a heated changing van, but it's best if you wear your long thermal underwear before coming to the National Park.
After gearing up, we will take a short walk over to the Silfra entry platform from where the activity starts.
The exit point is at another platform in the Silfra Lagoon. The time spent in the water is approx. 35 minutes.
After the snorkeling tour we will warm you up with hot cocoa and cookies.
Clothing to be worn under the dry suit and undergarment is not provided. Please bring:
