What you'll experience.
The Snorkeling and Golden Circle Tour is one of the most exciting combos available in Iceland!
The Golden Circle combines three of the most iconic attractions in Iceland. This tour gives the route a refreshing twist! Start your adventure by snorkeling in Silfra, a freshwater fissure between the North American and Eurasian continental plates.
Once you finish snorkeling the fresh, clear, water you will drive around the countryside in South Iceland, stopping at Þingvellir national park, a UNESCO World Site, the spouting hot spring Strokkur in Geysir geothermal area, and Gullfoss, one of Iceland’s most scenic waterfalls.
You can choose whether you snorkel in a wetsuit or drysuit. The difference is that in a wetsuit you can dive underneath the surface and explore more of the underworld wonders of Silfra.
Our friends at Adventure Vikings are the only company that offers wetsuit diving in Silfra so we really recommend you try it, you won’t regret it. Please note that all gear necessary for snorkeling is included.
