    This is Iceland’s ultimate lava tour! On this popular tour, you will ride Icelandic horses through the lava fields on the outskirts of Hafnarfjörður town as well as visit the UNESCO world heritage site of Þingvellir National Park.
    There you will snorkel in the crystal clear water in the Silfra fissure between the continents of America and Europe.

    We start with an adventurous ride from the Íshestar Riding Centre into the lava surrounding Mt. Helgafell volcano. Then we will ride through lava fields and across beautiful hillsides to either the old Kaldársel sheep corral or Lake Hvaleyrarvatn. As we ride through this amazing scenery you will see the unique formations in the rough lava. All riding occurs on great riding paths with the Bláfjöll Mountains towering above on the horizon. After the horse riding, we go back to Reykjavik where you have a possibility to buy lunch before moving on to the Þingvellir National Park, home of the Silfra Fissure.

    Snorkeling in the Silfra is our second adventure. The Silfra fissure is one of Iceland’s otherworldly scenes that is world famous for its heavenly shades of blue. The crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float down the lazy current. With more than 80 meters of visibility under the water, it is a sight not forgotten! The snorkeling is a relaxing but exotic trip in an unbelievably beautiful environment.

    Bad eyesight? Since you are wearing snorkeling / dive mask to see underwater, there can be nothing in the way of the seal to keep them from filling up with water. That is, you cannot wear glasses underneath the mask. You will have to go without them, wear eye lenses or bring your own mask with prescription.
