Into the Blue - Snorkeling tour
Available all year round
/ Winter Edition
Does snorkeling bring thoughts like warm beaches and tropical fish? Not necessarily - how about unique visibility, clear blue waters and lava formations?
Into the Blue snorkeling tour is available the whole year round in Thingvellir National Park. The Silfra fissure is located at the meeting of the tetonic plates of North America and Europe meet and has been rated by National Geographic as one of the world's top ten dive sites. The crystal clear water offers up to 100 meters of visibility giving you a feeling of being weightless as you float down with the lazy current. The pictures rest the case for one of the best kept secrets in Iceland.
Do you worry about the cold? Don't, because you'll be provided with all the necessary gear to keep you warm weather you decide to do the tour during the summer or in the middle of the winter. Among other things your gear includes a down suit, a dry suit to put on top, snorkel, neoprene hood, gloves, shoes, etc.
