Tour description

Snorkeling Silfra Tour from Reykjavik

The tour departs from Reykjavik. Please be ready for your pick-up 30 minutes before the departure. 


Silfra is a fissure between the North American and Eurasian continental plates. Silfra constantly fills with glacial water trickling through underground lava rock for 30 years. This remarkable crack between two tectonic plates is filled with the clearest water on our planet, allowing for over 100 meters of visibility.

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, stunning colors, and flying sensations provide a unique environment for liquid meditation that you will never forget.

  1. Have read, signed, and followed directions on the Snorkeling Silfra Medical Statement
  2. Sign our liability release form at the start of the tour

  7. Be comfortable in the water and be able to swim
  8. Be physically fit
  9. Be ready to wear a sometimes tight and constricting dry suit
  10. Be able to communicate in English or have a translator available at all times during the tour
  11. Not be pregnant
