Full description
Tour Iceland’s famous Golden Circle on a 9-hour scenic tour, and snorkel in the crystal clear waters of the Silfra Fissure in the heart of Þingvellir National Park.

The amazing adventure starts with a picturesque drive to the geothermal area of Geysir, the home of the one and only Geysir, for which all other so-called geysirs are named! Watch as the ground gurgles and bubbles, and super-hot water bursts from the ground with enormous force.

Next, stroll down to Gullfoss Waterfall, the undisputed queen of all Iceland’s waterfalls. See the water rushing down two steps of lava layers with breathtaking power and grandeur before driving on-wards to the fascinating site that is Thingvellir National park.

Þingvellir is Iceland’s only UNESCO World Heritage sSte, and the original birthplace of the world´s oldest parliament, where the Vikings would sit to make judgements and laws. It’s also the site where the great tectonic plates of America and Europe collide. You will see the continental rift up-close as you snorkel through the crystal clear blue waters of the Silfra Fissure, one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets.

Swim in the otherworldly scene and see heavenly shades of blue. Enjoy the sensation of feeling weightless as you float along with the lazy current. Although the water temperature is only about 2 degrees Celsius, the super-warm dry suits you will be provided with make the adventure possible, and perfect!
