Silfra Fissure Snorkeling Tour - Into the Blue

Discover the secret underwater canyon between two continents that makes Iceland a most unusual and fascinating snorkeling destination.

Þingvellir (Thingvellir)

A historical site, national park in Iceland and a UNESCO heritage site. Originally known for being the place where Alþingi (the parliament) was founded in 930 this place had served a grand role in Icelander’s saga since the settlers came. Still today you can find ruins of old stone shelters, the lakes and the Lögberg e. Law Rock. The park sits on a rift valley caused by the separation of two continental plates, with rocky cliffs and fissures like the huge Almannagjá fault. In this separation sits the amazing Silfra fissure.

Snorkeling in Silfra fissure

Enjoy an amazing snorkeling experience as you drift peacefully in the comfort of a warm drysuit accompanied by our highly skilled guides. Silfra, frequently rated as one of the world’s top ten dive sites, is located between the tectonic plates of Europe and America so you will be snorkeling in between them. This is an experience like no other and Silfra is the only place in the world where this can be done. 

Take your Icelandic geology exploration to another level as you explore the crystal clear glacial water that runs from Langjökull glacier about 50 km away, water that has been filtering through lava for 100-200 years. Touch the moving lava rocks and get a feel for the power and uniqueness of Icelandic nature in complete calm.  The visibility at Silfra is without comparison reaching somewhere around 150 meters. Some have described the feeling of snorkeling in Silfra like flying and others experience an ultimate state of meditation. Snorkeling in Silfra fissure is often called liquid meditation and you will understand why when you try it!

Silfra is truly a mesmerizing site and Into the Blue offers a relaxing but exotic trip in a highly unique and captivating environment. Whether you are an experienced snorkeler or a beginner this dive is an absolutely mesmerizing experience!

Our experienced and well-qualified specialist diving guides will ensure you are provided with all of the proper equipment and information you need.
