    Highly recommend this tour. It was amazing- even in the freezing cold of winter. The staff were great and the hot chocolate and biscuits after the snorkel helped too. Despite the cold, the view within the water and the clarity made it well and truely worth it. If you are doing this in winter, pack lots of layers!!

    AMAZING! Started the tour at the Lava Caves which was great. Got to see an awesome sunrise on the way to the site. Tour was excellent with a very knowledgeable and funny guide. Silfra Snorkeling was the highlight for me. crystal clear water. Very easy swim and the dry suits provided by the tour kept the cold water at bay. Great Tour with excellent excursion guides as well as our driver who was knowledgeable about the history of Silfra Fissure and was also a great to talk about all things Iceland. 100% would do again

    Lava caving was a quiet experience, got to see the "rainbow" and natural formation of the lava. I wasn't sure it if I want to do snorkeling at first, because I'm not comfortable with water. But I'm glad I did, "Steven" did great to ensure that I don't drown. I was tired half way, and "STEVEN" pulled me along with him so I can catch up with rest of the group. The under water has amazing view, i will never ever forget this experience! And the dry suit keeps you warm and floating!
