Iceland-map-destinations

The Silfra fissure is one of Iceland’s most desirable snorkeling spots. Located in the heart of Thingvellir national park, this narrow channel of blue water meandering through a giant lava field does not look like much on the surface. But below, supernatural shades of blue, perfect visibility and incredible rock formations make up a magical sub-aquatic paradise.

This tour is a meet on location only. If you need a pick-up from Reykjavik please see one of our other tours Snorkeling in Silfra Fissure from Reykjavík
