Snorkel in dry suits between two continents in the clearest water possible providing amazing visibility.

Melting water from the Langjokull glacier travels for over 30 years through lava fields before it flows into the Silfra fissure, famous for its amazing visibility and underwater landscapes. This filtering process makes the Silfra water as clear as water can be. Snorkelers experience a visibility of over 100 meters and can drink the water while swimming in it. The Silfra fissure has been created by the tectonical drift of the American and Eurasian continental plates. Snorkelers are literally between the continents.

Included: Bus fare, guidance in English and all necessary equipment and briefing is provided but please bring warm clothes for the time on land and thick socks. Since the water is cold the snorkeling is conducted in dry suits. These suits will keep you dry and the thermo undergarments we provide will keep you warm and comfortable.
