Snorkeling Silfra & Golden Circle Combo

This is a combination of a sightseeing tour of the Golden Circle and a snorkeling tour of Silfra. Silfra is the name of a fissure between the North American and Eurasian continental plates. This remarkable crack between two tectonic plates is filled with the clearest water on our planet (over 100 meters visibility). Silfra is filled with glacial water that has been trickling through underground lava for approximately 30 years and as this water finally reaches Silfra it creates a very slight current. 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. The Golden Circle tour is the perfect way to do a great amount of sightseeing in one day. On the Golden Circle route, we will stop in Thingvellir Park (where Silfra is also located), the impressive geothermal area called "Geysir," and the "golden waterfall" Gullfoss. The Silfra & Golden Circle tour is a wonderful way to get to know Iceland's power and beauty both above and below the surface.
