    We had a great day with Sven driving us around and Xavi guiding us in Silfra. The tour is very well organised and is definitely a must-do in Iceland! Silfra snorkeling in a dry suit is amazing, I hardly doubt you would have such experience anywhere else in the world! Don't be afraid: it's not (that) scary, not (that) cold and not (that) wet as you would imagine!

    Snorkelling in Silfra us a must do as part of the golden circle tour tour. We were so lucky to have just 3 of us in our group so the whole day was at a very nice & relaxed pace. Our main guide and driver Gylfi was amazing & gave us the best memorable day ever. He even bought us ice-cream. Our snorkelling guide Sarah was amazing too. She is very professional with the best sense of humour and made us feel safe & secure from start to finish. Underwater photography skills are brilliant so we came away with some wonderful photos of our experience. All in all a very well organised tour from pick up to drop off. Do not hesitate to choose Tröll Expeditions for this trip

    Had a really great day! Our guide Ronan was very friendly and enthusiastic, he really made the day enjoyable. The snorkelling was a unique experience that I'd highly recommend! In freezing waters the dry suits do there job and you are warmer in the water than you are out! Troll expeditions seem like a great company, all the staff we met were friendly and helpful. I would book a tour with them again.
