All about the trip
This tour combines snorkeling with caving and gives you the ultra experience of Icelandic nature. You will explore the hidden world of the lava fields in the Blue Mountain area and visit the UNESCO World Heritage site and snorkel the freshwater fissure Silfra, one of the best diving site in the world.
Silfra is a freshwater fissure about 60-63 meters in the deepest point, and you can almost see to end of it as the water is so clear. In fact, the water is so pristine it feels like you are flying. No diving experience is needed as you will snorkel at the surface of the canyon. We provide all the gear that you need and offer snorkeling in a wetsuit or a drysuit, depending on your preference. We however recommend the wetsuit as you will feel more free and be able to dive as well. You don't need a diving license for this activity.
The cave we will visit is called Leiðarendi. This 900 meter long lava tube offers unique rock formations, such as stalactites and shelves. Some light crawling may be required but Leiðarendi cave has rather easy access to the underworld wonders of the Icelandic lava fields.Watch on Youtube
