We booked the silfra snorkelling and lava cave tour and were told to be waiting 15 minutes before our pick up time. We waited 30 minutes and there was still no sign of any transport so we asked our hotel if we could phone arctic adventures. When you phone there is an automated message which states transport could be up... More

I did a few tours through this group and they were my favorite to deal with during my time in Iceland. The tours were really really fun! They provide or have available for rent most things you'd need to participate if you don't have room to pack everything. the tour guides were knowledgeable and friendly, and when I needed to...

A friend of mine and I embarked on the Silfra Snorkeling / Golden Circle Tour on Sunday, April 16th. We were picked up on time by our guide for the day, Victor.

I strongly recommend booking this tour with Arctic Adventures. The trip was a last minute decision for us as our Snaefellsnes Peninsula tour (with another tour group) was cancelled due to bad weather. I'm so happy it worked out this way because our Golden Circle tour was one of the highlights for our trip. Pick up was smooth and our... More

What an amazing experience snorkeling in the Silfra fissure!!! Our guides were so knowledgeable and sweet. I was honestly a little nervous about the cold temperature but it was SO WORTH IT! You can hear the earth vibrate. Once in a lifetime experience. The cookies and hot chocolate were a great touch!
