Golden Circle & Snorkeling in Silfra

All of these sights are a magnificent display of the power and beauty of nature and shouldn’t be missed by any visitor in Iceland. At Thingvellir lake we snorkel through Silfra, with the opportunity to see Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral and Silfra Lagoon. After a day full of impressions we will drive back to Reykjavik to close the Golden Circle and you will surely have no problem falling asleep.
