Snorkeling Silfra Day Tour

Float in the Unique Underwater World of Silfra

You don’t need to be a certified diver in order to experience water at its clearest! Snorkeling Silfra day tour is for everyone who feels comfortable in water and is a fantastic adventure for the whole family.

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.


Approximately 5 hours from the time of pick up in Reykjavík to the time of drop off. If you choose to drive yourself to Silfra, you can expect to be with us for about 3 hours. You will be in the water for around 30-40 minutes and the remaining time is needed for getting in and out of the gear.
