Itinerary
Choose to get picked up from your Reykjavik hotel or make your own way to the meeting point in Thingvellir National Park. Meet your PADI divemaster-certified guide who explains the procedures and demonstrates important safety measures.

With the help of your guide, don your provided dry suit and snorkel equipment and get ready to discover the underwater world of Silfra—a rift between the North American and Eurasian continental plates. Enjoy heightened visibility in these clear waters, where you can see more than 328 feet (100 meters) in front of you. While the water is cold year-round, you are kept warm and dry inside your insulating dry suit.

Afterward, toast the experience with a cup of hot chocolate before bidding farewell to your group. If you chose an option for hotel pickup and drop-off, enjoy transportation back to your accommodations.

Excellent Experience

My wife and I had a wonderful time. We got picked up by our lodging and taken straight to Silfra where we put on our dry suits. One of the group did use a wetsuit and enjoyed himself, but the water was very cold. Being...More

Amazing!

I was a bit apprehensive about getting into 0 degree C water even with a dry suit. Yes the water was cold and my lips tingled but other than that it was so worth it! My hair and hands got a bit damp but not...More

Not sure if it actually took 5 hours... it is a bit of a drive and you must put all of your gear on and take it off which takes some time too since the water is very cold.
