Day Trip from Reykjavik Small Group Silfra Snorkeling and Lava Caving Adventure
From US$229.82
Overview
Iceland is a global crossroads for outdoor adventure, but it can be hard to find experiences beyond mere sightseeing. On this adventure tour, visit Thingvellir National Park—a UNESCO World Heritage site—for a day of spelunking and snorkeling. Explore a lava tube and cave in one of the most volcanically active regions in Iceland, and then snorkel in the Silfra fissure, swimming between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
What to Expect
Make your way to a designated pickup point in central Reykjavik, where you climb aboard a climate-controlled minibus for the roughly hour-long journey to Thingvellir National Park. Listen to a quick safety briefing and introduction to the park, then get fitted for spelunking and snorkeling gear.

Follow your guide to underground lava fields through Gjabakkahellir or Leioarendi cave. Climb through a lava tube and take a tour of the cave. Marvel at layers of rock and lava deposits in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world.

After a lunch break (at your own expense), continue to the Silfra fissure, which lies between the tectonic plates that separate North America and Eurasia. Put on snorkeling gear and a wetsuit to explore the underground pool. Your guide takes you to the pool’s most scenic areas.

Finish the daylong adventure with a drop-off at the departure point.

Amazing trip!!!

The natural beauty of the lava tube caves and Silfra fissure were unlike anything I'd seen before! The guides were very knowledgeable about local history and geology. Don't be worried about getting cold when snorkeling, it was only around 35-40 degrees Fahrenheit when I went...More

I would message the company, I am not sure if they have age regulations or not. Personally the only thing tough about the snorkeling is how cold it is (if going in the winter). Sorry it took me so long to reply!! I hope this... More
