Golden Circle and Snorkeling in Silfra

Golden Circle and Snorkeling in Silfra

Experience the must-do Golden Circle combined with snorkeling in the famous Silfra fissure.

We take you to the extremely picturesque and beautiful Gullfoss Waterfall, Geysir Geothermal Area and Þingvellir national park.

This tour combines powerful and fragile nature with asthonishing wonders.

The Golden Circle offers a little bit for every one, whether you are a nature or history fan. On the trip you experience some of the highlights in Iceland when we drive along glacial rivers and beautiful landscapes. Your trip to Iceland won’t be completed without a visit to those sites.

But we also take our time to observe the lesser mention but still beautiful places and nature and cultural treasures.  Conditions allowing it, we’ll try to stop on the way to admire some of the famously friendly Icelandic horses.

For your snorkeling experience, the driver will leave you at Hakið viewpoint and you will have time to experience Þingvellir on your own while you walk to Silfra. This walk is about 20 minutes and you will be provided with a map of the area.

Your snorkeling guide will welcome you when you arrive to the lake and take over from there.
The guides are all highly experienced, licensed and have gone through professional training.
After the snorkeling, you will get to warm up with some hot cocoa.

After this action packed day, you will be dropped off back in the city.

This Golden Circle tour is also available as a private tour
