Overview
Iceland is a global crossroads for outdoor adventure, but it can be hard to find experiences beyond mere sightseeing. On this adventure tour, visit Thingvellir National Park—a UNESCO World Heritage site—for a day of spelunking and snorkeling. Explore a lava tube and cave in one of the most volcanically active regions in Iceland, and then snorkel in the Silfra fissure, swimming between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
Highlights
  • Explore with a guide and a certified dive-master; you’ll be in good hands
  • Get good value by combining snorkeling and spelunking in one day
  • Small-group guarantee, ensuring a more personalized experience
  • All equipment is provided, and all experience levels are welcome
  • Stress-free round-trip transportation from downtown Reykjavik
What to Expect
Make your way to a designated pickup point in central Reykjavik, where you climb aboard a climate-controlled minibus for the roughly hour-long journey to Thingvellir National Park. Listen to a quick safety briefing and introduction to the park, then get fitted for spelunking and snorkeling gear. Follow your guide to underground lava fields through Gjabakkahellir or Leioarendi cave. Climb through a lava tube and take a tour of the cave. Marvel at layers of rock and lava deposits in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world. After a lunch break (at your own expense), continue to the Silfra fissure, which lies between the tectonic plates that separate North America and Eurasia. Put on snorkeling gear and a drysuit to explore the underground pool. Your guide takes you to the pool’s most scenic areas. Finish the daylong adventure with a drop-off at the departure point.

Lava cave was a bit shorter than I expected. Snorkeling was really cool experience but very very cold! Your body stays warm in the dry suit but the gloves don’t help enough with your hands.

The lava cave is pretty neat and something different to experience. The snorkeling was incredible and although cold, the water is crystal clear and just like the pictures. The only downside is that with an almost nine hour day, you only spend about an hour in the cave and 30

The things we got to see on the tour were great and the snorkeling experience itself. However there were too many people in the bus and getting into groups was quite unorganized. They were also 10min late to pick us up. We’re waiting for pick up for 45 min. ( had to be there for

I did this adventure 2 years ago in 2017 as a last minute decision and I still think about it. I wish I had written down my tour guides names but they were both phenomenal. I got a bit anxious having the dry suit on but everyone was very compassionate and comforting and I'm so
