I booked Silfra Fissure snorkelling as a birthday gift and I went for the wet suit, he went for the dry suit. Booking was simple to do, I provided all the information and we received all the information we needed to meet on location.

I was quite nervous beforehand, having chosen the wet suit, but once we arrived Maria (my guide) put my mind instantly at ease. She said I’d be able to change my mind if I wanted, but after she talked me through everything I decided to stick with the wet suit. I worried about things fitting correctly being plus size, but again Maria was on hand to ease my worries, ensuring everything fitted nicely and that I was comfortable.

We made our way over to the fissure and Maria gave detailed instructions on what to expect and what to do. She had a brilliant sense of humour and my nerves disappeared. She made sure we were all ready and she got us in the water to warm up. It is cold, you do need to be prepared for that, but again Maria was a pro at ensuring we all stayed active at all times. I struggled a bit with the flippers, as I’d never used them before, but Maria gave plenty of encouragement and tips along the way; soon I settled and took in the wonder and beauty of the fissure. Being in a wet suit gave me more flexibility and Maria took some amazing pictures of us all - if you’re dithering about it I’d highly recommend the wet suit.

At the end of the tour on getting out Maria kept us active again to keep us warm, taking some more great photos. She led us back over to the vans to get us de-suited and gave us some amazing dry robes to keep us warm. Afterwards we enjoyed some lovely hot chocolate, which was very welcomed!

Throughout Maria was professional and truly excellent, keeping us laughing with her wicked sense of humour and providing us with an absolutely unforgettable experience. I’d highly recommend this trip, it’s one not to miss!

It was an awesome experience. We went with Luis and he is hilarious, he’d be a great stand up comedian. We had planned on using a dry suit but the weather was warm and perfect so half of the group changes into wet suits…so worth it. If the guides say that the weather is good enough for a wet suit…do it! The group was 12 people but only 6 go at a time so it it wasn’t crowded at all. They take a bunch of photos and serve hot chocolate at the end. Maria and Alberto were awesome as well, what a great group of people!

Really amazing experience, could not recommend more! It is cold, and I was anxious about that but once you’re in the water the views are so incredible you (almost) forget! It was -8 and wind gusts of around 50mph so it was freezing. As soon as we got out our suits were frozen! But our guide Chico was really helpful and informative, helped us on and off with all our kit, showed us the best places to stop and explore and kept us moving throughout. The hot chocolate at the end was great to warm up but I would do this trip again in a heartbeat because it was definitely a once in a lifetime experience! I can’t wait to get our pictures back, thank you again!

Our guide Maria absolutely made our trip! Silfra itself is breathtaking (literally from the cold), but our guide went above and beyond to make sure we had the best time. I brought my mom along who isn't the best swimmer or the most comfortable in the water. Maria jumped right in and kept an eye on her so that I could fully enjoy myself. Her dive briefing was very thorough and funny too! I couldn't recommend this company enough!

We had an awesome experience! Louis is probably the best snorkling instructor in the world only after Maria! She made sure we never felt uncomfertable or scared. My girl was a bit nervous but Maria made that go away like snow in the sunshine. Also Louis is cool, but just not as cool as Maria..
Thanks guys!

Ivan is a super great guide! Make you feel confortable, check if you are in good shape all the long of the experience, especially for those which take the wet suit!

I really recommend to take the wet suit even in winter, and even if not really choose it at the beggining(boyfriend’s idea) the water is always the same temperature according the season, but you will feel very free and more enjoying the experience with this one. The blue is crazy even when the weather is not so good outside.

We are super happy to did it and we are very grateful from Ivan advice also for the Volcano! Thanks a lot Viking adventure and Many thanks to Ivan !!! 👌🏻👌🏻🙏🏼

Amazing once in a life time experience. Luis was an absolute gem of a tour guide. He held my hand because I felt a little scared going into the water (It's not scary, I'm just a big scared cat) he held my hand until I felt confident and you couldn't stop me after that. What an amazing experience. Surprisingly I got the wet suite and it wasn't that bad. But I am Canadian and our waters are similar. It was chilly but honestly as soon as you start moving it warms up quickly. We saw huge trout which was amazing and apparently rare. They were massive though. The tectonic rocks, the cave area and just everything was incredibly beautiful. This is the only place you can see the Eurasia and North American plates meet. I can't describe how beautiful and amazing the experience was. Also the water is so clean and pure you can drink it. I was dying of thirst that morning and normally wouldn't dare to drink wilderness water but I was assured you could drink the water which has been filtered by volcanic rock since forever and it was honestly the most amazing taste (it really had no taste it was just pure cold liquid) it was so refreshing and I was expecting an upset stomach later but I felt great the rest of my trip. Just incredible. I'll never forget it.

We had a perfect day - with excellent and funny guides. Our guide Ivan was really PRO and very friendly. If you give them Icelandic biscuits.. like kremkex (vanilla with ice) or some chocolate they will dance for the TEAM! :)

Snorkeling in Silfra is amazing experience and please do not think about the cold water! - JUST DO IT - and enjoy every minute of it,, it is AMAZING ..

A once in a lifetime experience! The family had this on the “must get done” Bucket list as part of our first trip to Iceland…we are from Fl so we love snorkeling, but this was for sure the coldest water we have ever swam in.
Alberto and Luis were great and we decided to go with 3 wetsuits and 1 dry suit for Mom as she does not like cold water. The views and pictures were amazing and we highly recommend this tour to all who visit ;)

We can highly recommend this tour for group of friends or family. Special experience and a lot of fun. Don't have to be afraid of cold water, neoprene keep you relatively warm even in the wet suit.
It was a special time mainly because of our guide Ivan! Professional and friendly, charismatic, funny guy whom makes you feel like his friend from the first minute. Loved it! :)
