All about the trip
Snorkeling and horseback riding is a perfect combination for those who want to experience a great outdoor day in Iceland. You’ll enjoy snorkeling in the freshwater fissure Silfra, which is known to be one of the best dive sites in the world, and you will enjoy riding an Icelandic horse known for their great handling.
This is a pure nature trip. You’ll be snorkeling in either wetsuit or drysuit, depending on your preference. By wearing the wetsuit you will be able to dive underneath the surface of Silfra and we recommend this choice rather than the drysuit as you will get more out of the tour. Silfra is a freshwater fissure, about 60-63 meters deep. You can almost see the bottom as the water is so clear. Silfra is situated at the UNESCO World Heritage site, Thingvellir.
The horseback riding will take place at the friendly family run farm Laxnes where you’ll ride on the Icelandic horse which has five gaits. You will enjoy the Icelandic nature at the same time you are getting to know these small friendly horses.
