A once-in-a-lifetime snorkeling trip. The guides (AJ) were fantastic and provide everything you need. It is chilly but actually pretty comfortable with the dry suit on! Worth every penny.

I was scared about going into water that was just above freezing (2 degrees Celsius), but this is so phenomenal. They do a great job of putting you in a dry suit, so that you will be protected and covered - everything except your face....More

Snorkelling in Silfra was one of the highlights of my trip to Iceland. You get kitted up with a dry suit so 90% of your body is warm and dry. The pictures do not do this place justice. The water is so clear. Our guides...More

We returned from our trip at Silfra snorkeling today. You can book the snorkeling and drive there on your own with every provider, you don't have to be on a tour. We booked at extreme Iceland and are very happy
