Highlights
    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 were picked up at the cruise terminal promptly at 8:30am and collected other guests for our small group tour (14). Our 1st stop was at the snorkeling site (1 hr drive). This was the highlight of the tour! We were at this site for roughly 3 hrs. Next we joined our group

    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 conditions!

    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 whole different magical world, but as soon as you get into the water, it is hard to get back to reality. It's truly a majestic adventure and something you really want to share with others... :) If you make your way back to Iceland we would love to have you with us on more adventures! Best regards, Kotryna Arctic Adventures

    My mom, who is 64 years old, and I did this tour last week. We had an amazing time! The golden circle is beautiful. Our tour guide, Oliver, was very friendly and informative. The highlight of our tour was the snorkeling. My mom was nervous at first, but she found out there was

    Dear KPrich, Thank you very much for your kind review. We are happy to hear that our guides took great care of you and your mum. Indeed, one of the most exiting ways to experience Iceland is snorkeling. We have adapted to cold water temperatures by using dry suits to keep you warm. Snorkeling is challenging and undiscovered activity for many but with professional guides it can be a really pleasant experience. Thank you for your recommendations and hope to see you on our other tours. Best regards, Laura Arctic Adventures
