The Golden Circle has for long been a favorite route for travelers to take and snorkeling in Silfra is one of the most popular activities in Iceland. The combination of the two is the perfect day in Iceland.
We start the tour off with a tour around the Golden Circle. Our first stop is the famous Geysir geothermal area. We will see Strokkur, the famous spouting hot spring that sends hot water high up in the air every 8-10 minutes. Although Geysir has stopped erupting the area is still very much active with numerous smaller hot springs for visitors to enjoy. The last stop on our golden circle adventure is at Gullfoss waterfall. Gullfoss is one of the most powerful waterfall in Iceland. It looks amazing in pictures, but it’s even more magnificent to see it in person. The water flows all the way from Langjökull glacier and gushes 32 meters down to the Gullfoss canyon.
After we have explore Gullfoss and geysir, we will head off to Þingvellir National Park, where Silfra is located. Þingvellir is where one of the first democratic parliament was founded in 930 AD. Þingvellir holds a special place in every Icelander’s heart because of its historical significance. In addition to that, Þingvellir is on UNESCO’S world heritage list for its unique geological features. The national park is located right in the rift valley of the Eurasian and North-American tectonic plates.
Our next adventure will be a snorkeling tour in Silfra. The water in Silfra is a glacier melt water that has been filtered through lava for about 50 years before reaching the fissure. The crystal clear water has roughly the same temperature all year around so you can enjoy this great tour in all seasons. The low temperature and the remarkably clear water provide a visibility that is hard to find anywhere else in the world. The snorkeling tour takes your through countless shades of blue and green are sure to take your breath away.
