SuperSaver: Small Group Golden Circle Tour and Silfra Snorkeling Adventure

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    Begin with a pickup from your hotel in Reykjavik and travel by climate-controlled minibus to the Golden Circle, a 186-mile (300-km) scenic loop that circles the countryside around the capital.
    Stop first at the UNESCO World Heritage–listed Thingvellir National Park, notable as the site of the world’s longest-running parliament and the point where the tectonic plates of Europe and North America meet.
    Stretch your legs with a stroll, then drive to Lake Thingvallavatn. Head to the snorkel center, where you’ll get changed and pick up your equipment. Then, following a safety briefing, enter the crystalline waters with the guide.
    Drift between the two continents and marvel at the neon-green seaweed and other underwater sights. The fissure’s visibility is renowned, and you can even see down to the lava fields, some 328 feet (100 meters) below.
    Back on dry land, warm up with hot chocolate and sit down to lunch (own expense). Then, depart for Haukadalur, a geothermal valley studded with geysers and hot springs. Make a photo stop at Geysir, one of the area’s most famous highlights, before stopping at nearby Gulfoss.
    Your tour then concludes with a drop-off at your hotel.

    We had a fantastic trip around the Golden Circle. However the highlight was snorkelling the Silfra fissure - even if it was -15c outside! Steve was a great driver/guide and Taz our snorkelling guide entertained us and helped keep our spirits up in the freezing...More

    Hi PaulGConstable, Thank you for taking the time to review your experience with us! Snorkeling between two continents is something that can only be done in Iceland. The underwater world of Silfra has a lot to offer! From the surface, it doesn’t look like a...More

    Starting the day, pick up was a bit anxiety-inducing as the stop closest to us, that we were allowed to choose with no warnings, turned out to be under construction on the street. So we tried flagging down a couple Arctic Adventure busses at a...More

    The trip requires you to follow with the group at the groups pace. I am a strong swimmer but with all the gear on which is heavy and cumbersome it becomes tiring. Our guide was great. She helped me along toward the end. I... More
