Snorkeling in Silfra
Snorkelling in Lake Thingvalla
Silfra, a crack in the lava, is one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets. Silfra lies in the heart of Thingvalla, where the world’s oldest parliament met. The crystal clear water will give you a feeling of weightlessness while you float in the gentle current. After an hour of snorkelling we climb out to enjoy a cup of coffee and some light refreshments. Snorkelling in Thingvallavatn is a relaxing and exotic experience most people only get to dream of!
