A fabulous experience. Chico and Miguel were great leaders. They were clearly experienced and knowledgeable but they were also very friendly and funny. Chico was very reassuring in the way that he checked everything to ensure everyone’s safety. The swim was amazing and we’re very glad we did it.

Was a beautifull snorkeling experience. The sun was shining so we could see the different colours of blue of the water very clearly. The guides (Magda and Luis) were fun and informative. Definitely a recommendation!

Great experience, excellent, professional guides, I felt very safe. Great scenery. The dry suits worked well. I considered a wetsuit, but the opportunities to dive below the surface are limited. I'm glad I chose the dry suit.

Amazing experience! A must do activity if you are visiting Iceland. Our guide Chico was super friendly and helpful. I was terrified of the cold water and the depth, but Chico held my hand throughout the tour and made our group feel very comfortable and encouraged. Both our guides were very helpful and made us feel at ease. They were very patient with our group and took the tour at the right pace without rushing. Would highly recommend doing this amazing tour with Adventure Vikings!

It was the first time I have ever worn a dry suit! The guides were incredible. Very nice and funny. Took a long time to suit up so be prepared for that. Your face and hands get pretty cold, but they pretty much go numb and then everything is fine. It was a very peaceful, serene experience and the underwater views are unlike anything I have seen. Crystal clear waters make it a one of a kind experience. 10/10, would recommend👍

Really unique experience - almost hard to believe what you’re looking at. A lot of time is spent gearing up with the drysuit and associated equipment and then about 35 mins is spent in the water. Instructors were great and walk you through everything. I recommend if you have time to do this and spend time in the park as well!

Incredible snorkeling trip. Not often you get the chance to snorkel between tectonic plates. Don’t let the cold bother you- you’re in a dry suit and relatively warm. Also, the guides were amazing and very friendly. Highly recommend them!!

Amazing experience with Viking Adventures

Snorkeling in the Silfra waters was fantastic, from start to finish the experience was great. Booking and communication was good, emails, texts and confirmations accurate. Arriving on site we were welcomed by Francisco, friendly, chatty and funny. Getting into the suits and equipment was checked and double checked. Our group was taken by veronica, she was helpful, informative and clear with instructions. The water was 2 degrees but the suits were very good apart from our faces and hands we really didn’t feel The col water and they kept us totally dry. After the snorkeling we enjoyed a nice hot chocolate & chat before finishing our trip. We would highly recommend Viking Adventures.

If you’re thinking of venturing outside of your comfort zone, please look no further because this is the excursion! This was my husband’s and I first time ever snorkeling and I must say our guide treated us with so much kindness and patience. Did I mention that my husband cannot even swim a lick but still managed to keep up with the group while enjoying the experience. The equipment kept us dry the entire time, and the instructions presented were easy to follow. Our guide captured a lot of great photos that were readily available within days. Overall, I really enjoyed and will do it again!

Snorkeling in Silfra

The group got along well, which helped the experience, but we also had two wonderful guides: Vero and Chico! Through Adventure Vikings. They were fun and helped calm the few who were nervous swimmers. The water was very cold in late March, but I barely noticed it, too distracted by the experience and underwater scenery. The water was refreshing too and clear to the bottom. This was an amazing experience!
