Traveled Iceland for three days with friends as a stopover on our way to France. Remko with Dive Silfra was a great guide and snorkeling was amazing. The water is so clear and the dry suits keep you very warm. Wonderful experience.

Dry suit certification needed, and obviously a wee bit chilly but worth it! The most amazing dive of my life. From the Great Barrier reef to the Maldives..nothing compares to Silfra!
