Snorkeling in Silfra with Adventure Vikings

Silfra is one of the best places to snorkel in Europe. It is a part of Thingvellir National Park, one of the most popular destinations as a part of the Golden Circle.

Let the Adventure Vikings take you for a swim between tectonic plates, glacial waters, and breathtaking underwater landscapes. The Silfra fissure exists due to the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates separating around 2 centimeters a year – leaving a rift in the landscape between them. This rift is filled with glacial water from Langjökull glacier that has been filtered through lava fields for decades before reaching Silfra – making the water exceptionally clear and drinkable.

Snorkeling in Silfra, Iceland, has to be a must to include in your CampEasy trip planner!
