Itinerary

 


If you are a certified diver this tours is something for you. It gives you the opportunity to dive in one of the world’s top ten diving sites Silfra, situated in the Žingvellir National Park. Silfra is actually a crack/fissure in the face of the earth and has a constant temperature of 1-3°C all year round.

You can swim out the crack without effort due to a mild current thrusting you onward. Silfra offers open water diving, caving and deep diving, but the depth is about 40 meters open water and 60 meters inside of a cave.

Weather does not play any part in diving in Silfra, except it’s more beautiful in sunny weather. You will be accompanied by a PADI Dive master or a PADI Instructor. It is really easy to dive in this area, because we can choose from different routes depending on your experience as a diver.

We recommend that you wear warm undergarments beneath the diving suit and bring extra clothing. You will have to have experience as a diver and be familiar with all the equipment involved.

The diving and snorkeling tours share the same transfer to and from Žingvellir National Park.

Due to the limited daylight hours from 21 November through 21 January the tour departs Reykjavik at 10:00 with pickup at your hotel at 09:30.
