You can also explore the Silfra fissure by snorkeling, an activity within the reach of practically everyone. This tour is open to advanced snorkelers and novices, and the basics are wonderfully simple to learn. A guide will teach you everything you need to know and answer all your questions.
If you are a certified diver, with or without dry suit experience, this is the adventure for you! Silfra, which is actually a crack in the face of the earth between the Eurasian and American plates.
The water in Silfra has traveled for years from Iceland’s glaciers and pushed its way up from a porous lava field, maintaining a constant temperature of 1-3°C all year around. A mild current at your back helps you swim effortlessly out of the crack.
You will be accompanied by a PADI Instructor, who is there to answer all your questions and assist you with your dive. With different routes to suit all experience and comfort levels, Silfra is truly the perfect diving location.
After some 4 hours in the water you will be returned to your hotel in Reykjavik.
