A true Icelandic adventure awaits when you take to the sparkling waters of Thingvellir National Park on an unforgettable snorkeling excursion. Your snorkeling gear is included but please bring outdoor clothing and warm socks. This experience is suitable for beginners, as a guide will be on hand to assist. Travel via motorcoach from Reykjavik on an approximately 45-minute drive to the designated UNESCO national park, where you'll visit the Silfra fissure, a deep cleft formed when the two plates that separate Europe and North America drifted apart. Slip on a provided dry suit and snorkel gear and marvel at the water's clarity, offering up to 100 meters of visibility, as you float along on the gentle current. Frequently rated as one of the world's top dive sites, Silfra's underwater ecosystem, algae and rock formations make for dramatic photographs. After an hour of snorkeling, relax on the drive back to port.
