This caving and snorkeling tour gives you an opportunity to experience Iceland from a new angle.
We pick you up from Reykjavík and start with the black part of the tour by exploring a lava tube cave close to Reykjavík. This adventure gives you a great insight of the volcanic activities that have formed Iceland. Depending on the season we go either to Leiðarendi Cave or Gjábakkahellir, both caves are typical lava tubes that display the characterizing features that are common for this type of caves.
After we finish the caving, we drive to Þingvellir National Park where Silfra fissure is found. Here we get ready to explore the blue by putting on a dry suit and other snorkeling gear needed. Your guide leads you through the marvels of this crystal clear water wonderland that is considered to be one of the best freshwater snorkeling places in the world.
You will have a chance to grab some lunch between the two activities.

Due to guide/customer ratio limitations and Þingvellir National Park regulations this tour sells out frequently, we recommend you book this tour well in advance.
Do you have bad eyesight? You will be wearing snorkeling goggles while in the water and you won’t be able to wear your glasses underneath. So unless you are bringing your own prescription goggles we recommend that you acquire contact lenses for your snorkeling tour.
Although you don’t need to “swim” while snorkeling, we recommend that you can because you have to be comfortable with floating in the water to be able to enjoy to the fullest. People that can’t swim tend to panic water and we do not want you to do that.
