Fede was an excellent guide! She explained so much about the Silfra and gave a detailed guide to how to enjoy and swim while wearing our dry suit. Definitely it was an unforgettable experience that will be cherished forever! Also, it's not as cold as you would have imagined, so get on board with the experience of your life!

Informative tour with an informative tour guide. It’s pretty immense a must do tour in Iceland. I mean it’s rare to see a cave that was once occupied by lava and was formed by an erupting volcano all those centuries ago. Very immersive experience and great.

Amazing experience. Well organized both before, during and after the snorkeling. Our guide Victor was very professional and took great photos of us and the surroundings for us to keep.

The most amazing water colors The cold is super bearable since it’s just in your toes and fingers… you’re lips get super funny.. natural Botox ;) Anna was the best Loved it

Great guide! Small excursion of 1 hour which is worth the detour
