Remember to bring: Warm and waterproof outdoor clothing, gloves, warm undergarments (fleece/wool), warm socks, a change of clothing (just in case).

What if I don’t own all of these clothing necessaries?
Don’t worry, you can always rent sturdy hiking shoes, waterproof jacket and pants in the booking process. We do not rent gear from location.

This caving and snorkeling tour gives you an opportunity to experience Iceland from a new angle.

Pick up starts at 9:00 am from your Reykjavík accommodation. Please note, that the pick up can take up to 30 min.

After we pick you up from Reykjavík we start with the black part of the tour by exploring a lava tube cave close to Reykjavík. This adventure gives you a great insight of the volcanic activities that have formed Iceland. Depending on the season we go either to Leiðarendi Cave or Gjábakkahellir, both caves are typical lava tubes that display the characterizing features that are common for this type of caves.

After we finish the caving, you will have a chance to grab some lunch between the two activities.

We will drive to Þingvellir National Park where Silfra fissure is found. Here we get ready to explore the blue by putting on a dry suit and other snorkeling gear needed. Your guide leads you through the marvels of this crystal clear water wonderland that is considered to be one of the best freshwater snorkeling places in the world.

 

Because of the snorkeling there are some requirements:
Age limit: 16 – 65 years old.
Weight limit: 45-120 kg
Height limit: 150 cm +
Other requirements: Participants need to be comfortable in the water and be able to swim. You are unable to participate if you pregnant.
You can view the online medical form all snorkelers must fill out before going on the tour which is sent by email upon booking. If you mark YES on any of the questions in section 1 then you will not be able to participate. If you mark YES on any of the questions in section 2 you will need to get your Physician’s approval and signature on this approval form.

Need glasses?
You will be wearing a snorkeling mask while in the water and you won’t be able to wear your glasses underneath. So unless you are bringing your own prescription mask we recommend that you acquire contact lenses for your snorkeling tour.

Photo or it didn’t happen?
We offer every snorkeler the opportunity of having their picture taken whilst enjoying the wonders of Silfra. You can purchase the photos from the tour on site for 3900 ISK. We accept cards and cash.

Swimming
You need to know how to swim because you have to be comfortable with floating in water to be able to enjoy to the fullest.

Remember to bring: Warm and waterproof outdoor clothing, gloves, warm undergarments (fleece/wool), warm socks, a change of clothing (just in case).

What if I don’t own all of these clothing necessaries?
Don’t worry, you can always rent sturdy hiking shoes, waterproof jacket and pants in the booking process. We do not rent gear from location.

Please note

This is a combo tour and it is not an option to meet us on location.

Due to guide/customer ratio limitations and Þingvellir National Park regulations this tour sells out frequently, we recommend you book this tour well in advance.
