Snorkeling at Silfra Iceland

With Dive Iceland

Silfra snorkeling

During your snorkel you will explore the four main parts of Silfra. You will float through Big Crack, Silfra’s narrowest section and where the continental plates are so close you can almost touch them both of them at the same time. The fissure then widens into Silfra Hall.

Here the full spectrum of Silfra’s colors and clarity become all the more apparent.

Near to the opening to Thingvallavatn we will enter the Silfra Cathedral; as the depth reaches 23m you feel like you are flying over the boulders and glacial silt.

Your snorkel is finished in the endless visibility of Silfra Lagoon. Make sure to drink some of the Silfra water while you are snorkeling! Who knows when you will be able to drink water so pure again.

Note: if you have your own transportation, you have the option of meeting them directly at Thingvellir Park.
