We decided to go with Adventure Vikings because they were the only company offering wetsuit snorkelling in Silfra, as I find drysuits very uncomfortable. They warned us it would be freezing (water temps of 2 degrees Celsius) but I wasn’t expecting it to be that cold! Despite the shock of the cold, I still enjoyed the wetsuit as I had more freedom and movement to explore/ dive deep in my wetsuit then those in my group with drysuits. The only thing I would change would be to have separate groups for wet/dry suits or for dry suit people to be put in the water a few minutes ahead of wetsuiters as they moved much slower and it was hard to swim around to keep warm as recommended with the traffic jam of drysuiter in front of you! Definitely a great Iceland experience!

Hi MelindaErin
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We appreciate each and every one, the kind words towards Adventure Vikings and our guides. More importantly the reviews help us improve and to connect better with our customers.

We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the Silfra Snorkeling tour and had a great Iceland experience with us. Our guides always make sure to inform all guest, especially those that have opted for a wetsuit, about what they have coming up or what they will experience. We do understand that you felt it was hard to swim around with the drysuit snorkelers moving a bit slower but as for now it is the best solution for the wetsuiters to backtrack a bit and keep moving around to keep up warmth. Freediving once in a while also helps a lot when it comes to coping with the cold water. Be cause there are also often other snorkelers from other operators both infront of us and behind us we have to make sure to respect the gap between us and them which is also a regulation implemented by the national park. We are though constantly trying to improve so we will but this under consideration and hopefully come up with a solution that suits everyone. Our ratio is always one guide per six customers and when we do have enough wetsuit users to fit together in one group, we of cause do so and that does make things a bit easier. That however is unfortunately not always possible.

We thank you for a good day at Silfra and we hope to see you on more adventurous tours in your future visits in Iceland.

Best Regards
The Adventure Vikings team

If you love watersports, you'll love this tour. Your guide will go as fast or as slow as tour group can handle. What a great way to see the natural beauty of Iceland.

Hi slwarren22
Thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We appreciate each and every one, the kind words towards Adventure Vikings and our guides. More importantly the reviews help us improve and to connect better with our customers.

We are so glad to hear how much you enjoyed the Stand Up Paddleboarding tour into the forgotten fjord. It is such an interesting place with so much history and of cause all that wonderful untouched nature. We could not agree any more with you, if someone loves watersports then this surely is a tour to consider.

Thank you for a great day of paddleboarding and we hope to see on more adventurous tours in your future visits in Iceland.

Best Regards
The Adventure Vikings team

Had the best day with adventure Vikings. The tour is well done and the guides are nice, friendly and actually care that you have a good time. Our guide made an impromptu stop at an amazing ice cream place for us all to get some delicious ice cream. Overall amazing time and really enjoyed talking to the guides.
