Iceland is a global crossroads for outdoor adventure, but it can be hard to find experiences beyond mere sightseeing. On this adventure tour, visit Thingvellir National Park—a UNESCO World Heritage site—for a day of spelunking and snorkeling. Explore a lava tube and cave in one of the most volcanically active regions in Iceland, and then snorkel in the Silfra fissure, swimming between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates.
What to Expect
Make your way to a designated pickup point in central Reykjavik, where you climb aboard a climate-controlled minibus for the roughly hour-long journey to Thingvellir National Park. Listen to a quick safety briefing and introduction to the park, then get fitted for spelunking and snorkeling gear.

Follow your guide to underground lava fields through Gjabakkahellir or Leioarendi cave. Climb through a lava tube and take a tour of the cave. Marvel at layers of rock and lava deposits in one of the most active volcanic areas in the world.

After a lunch break (at your own expense), continue to the Silfra fissure, which lies between the tectonic plates that separate North America and Eurasia. Put on snorkeling gear and a wetsuit to explore the underground pool. Your guide takes you to the pool’s most scenic areas.

Finish the daylong adventure with a drop-off at the departure point.

Freezing but magical

Wow, what an amazing place. The water is freezing (2 degrees) but after 30 seconds your face goes numb and you can concentrate on what you are seeing. Visibility is incredible & the blues & greens so vivid. Guides were great. The hardest part is...More

No, we did not travel the golden circle. We traveled to the cave, came back to Reykjavik for lunch, then traveled to the snorkeling site.
