    What to Expect

    Upon arrival at Silfra, your guide will give you your dry suit and snorkeling equipment. Your snorkel guide will explain how to use this equipment and how to ensure that you will be warm and comfortable during your tour. The guide will help you with putting all the gear on and you can change in our heated Changing Van. We recommend wearing long underwear and thick socks. When ready, you will walk 5 minutes to Silfra and start your 30 to 40 minute snorkeling tour of Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral, and Silfra Lagoon.
    After snorkeling in the cold water, we warm you up with hot cocoa and cookies.
    The service level at Dive.is is the best, there is a reason TripAdvisor chose our Snorkeling Tour the No 4 experience in the world!

    정말 추천하는 투어입니다. 추워보이고 드라이수트를 입는게 힘들어보이지만 충분히 그 가치를 합니다. 저희의 가이드는 Tanya였으며 매우 전문적이고 유쾌한 분이었습니다. 잊을 수 없는 경험일 것 같습니다. It was truly amazing experience that we had snorkeled in the middle of two techtonics! Our guide Tanya explained details about Silfra's history and let us snorkel
