I loved the Tour around Silfra. Appreciated the Mini Group and our Tourguide Talis is super friendly and has a good sense of humour. I would recommend the Snorkeling Experience to everyone. Looking down in the Water was whole lot different World. The Colors so beautifully vibrant and mesmerizing. It was worth it! Just would recomment to bring with you a Mosquito Head Piece, there were annoying so many flies around that Area!

We started off by visiting the water fall which was incredible to see. There’s flies everywhere so take a fly net which will allow you to enjoy the waterfall instead of swatting flies away from your face the whole time. We then went to the Geysir’s which were really cool to watch. Here you can get food so you don’t need to take a packed lunch like we did. We then went to the national park where we had time to wander before our snorkelling. The snorkelling was the best part of this trip! The professionals were really friendly and looked after us really well. The water was 2 degrees but because of the two suits you wear you barely feel the cold. You don’t actually need to take extra clothes as they give you enough to keep you warm and dry. We even got a hot chocolate and a chocolate bar when we finished. I’m disappointed by our tour guide for the whole trip. He barely said two words the whole time. I’m glad the snorkelling was so good otherwise I would have thought this trip was poor.

The snorkelling was phenomenal! Though I was initially afraid of the cold, it wasn’t near as bad as I thought it would be! Our guides Anna and Victor were so awesome! They always made sure we were okay and taken care of! Silfra was beautiful and very surreal! We even got hot chocolate and a chocolate bar after! The Golden Circle was amazing as well! Our tour guide Tasil was so knowledgeable, friendly and funny! He even made some extra stops to make the experience that much more special! I would absolutely recommend this to travellers of Iceland!
