This was an amazing experience! The tour is a few hours, but you are actually in the water only 30-40min. It is a little deceiving, because while you are technically swimming between two tectonic plates, the plates are about 5k apart, so when you're swimming,...More

Snorkeling at Silfra was an amazing experience. I truly felt as if I was floating between two tectonic plates. Looking at the rocks beneath you was awe inspiring. Ants was a great guide too!

The snorkeling trip with Troll was an absolute highlight and our guide (dimitris) was amazing. Super knowledgeable, friendly and had our safety as his number 1 concern. I would recommend this trip over and over.

This was a really cool snorkeling trip. The water is so clear that you can see everything. Don't worry about the cold, the dry suits keep you warm enough. Very worthwhile excursion.

Yes you must although the suits are very buoyant there is a strong current at one point that you are required to swim so you do not float out to the lake. I am a good swimmer and I would not have felt safe if I was not able... More
