How about starting the day with snorkeling in Silfra, a freshwater fissure known to be one of the best diving spots in the world and then drive around beautiful Iceland? Then we recommend you the combination of Snorkeling and the Golden Circle tour.
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 wonders of Silfra. Adventure Vikings is the only company that offers wetsuit diving in Silfra so we really recommend you to try this, you won’t regret it. Silfra is a freshwater fissure about 60-63 meters where it is deepest. You will not need any experience in diving nor snorkeling.
After the snorkeling we will take you on the Golden Circle tour, which is the most popular tourist route in Iceland. We will start at the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Þingvellir, where Althing, was established around 930 and at Þingvellir the two continents, Europe and America, meet. We will also visit the geothermal active valley Haukadalur where among others the hot spring geysers Geysir and Strokkur are and check out the waterfall Gullfoss.
