Iceland is full of surprises.
It seems in every direction you point to leads to something different! However, some paths are beaten and some paths are reserved for the true adventurer. If you dare, go snorkeling in the arctic waters of Silfra, the crack separating the North American and European continents.
It might sound really extreme and very cold, but we promise it will be worth it. After all, where else can you swim between two continents?
Scuba Iceland is the perfect option to take this tour.
They’ll pick you up right at the front door, and drive you to Þingvellir National Park where you’ll be diving with a small group. Before that, you will receive an introduction to the Continental plates and the nature in the park. Afterwards, the group will be driven down to Silfra to start preparing for the water.
You will learn how to wear the dry suit and use all of the equipment, and don’t worry about getting wet: this kind of suit will protect you from the water… well, almost all the way. There is a chance that you will get a little wet. We must say, suiting up is not the most comfortable part of the tour, but at least it will be funny.
If you’re concerned about being a swimmer or not, don’t be. You don’t need to be a professional as the dry suit will keep you floating from the moment you jump into the water.
All your worries will disappear once you’re in the water. The views are even better than the photos. It will look like a science fiction movie. You won’t believe how marvelous this world can be. The water is totally clear, so you can appreciate the plates in all of their glory and all of the nature in the deep.
You will be swimming and soaking in the water for approximately 25 minutes. If you decide to take this tour, book with Scuba Iceland, as they are amazing with the group. You will always feel safe.
Will you get cold? Of course you will, especially your hands and face.
Is it worth it, though? Totally! You MUST do it.
A good piece of advice for taking the tour? Wear really warm socks.
Take part in this unique experience that we’re sure you’ll not regret.
