Full description
Drysuit snorkeling in Silfra rift, a UNESCO World Heritage Site in Thingvellir National Park, is definitely an out-of-this-world adventure and a hidden natural wonder with 100 meters of underwater visibility and bright colors make the experience almost unrealistic. The pristine water in Silfra is one of the purest and clearest waters you’ll find on the planet.

When snorkeling in Silfra, you are traveling between two continents, ending the tour in a lagoon often called "the real blue lagoon" because of the bright blue color of its water. Snorkeling in Silfra rift, where you are guided into this magnificent scenery, is a total must-see for all nature and adventure thirsty individuals and groups. You will view Silfra from the surface while the slow current carries you through the stunning underwater landscape. You will stay dry underneath your drysuit or, for the more adventurous, choose the wetsuit to feel the natural cool waters.
