Become a snorkeler for a day in the famous Silfra fissure in Iceland! On our Snorkeling Adventure in Silfra, you will float between two continents, marveling at  the incredible clarity of the water and the vivid, fluorescent colors of the underwater world.

Silfra is a fissure between the European and the North American tectonic plates that are drifting apart here in Iceland. Silfra is filled with pure and clear glacial water in which you can float with us on our Snorkeling Tours.

If you choose the Snorkeling Silfra Day Tour with Pick Up, you will be picked up from your location in Reykjavik, your guide will then drive you to Thingvellir National Park, where Silfra is located.
If you choose a Snorkeling Silfra Self-Drive Tour, you will meet us directly at Silfra.

At Silfra, our guide will dive you the dry suit and snorkeling equipment and give you all the instructions you need to be safe and comfortable during your 30 to 40 minute Snorkeling Tour of the Silfra Fissure. You will float through Big Crack, Sifra’s narrowest section where you can almost touch the two continental plates, the Silfra Hall with its astonishing colors, the deep Silfra Cathedral and the Silfra Lagoon.
