“We took on this snorkeling adventure with a mixture of trepidation, worry, excitement and disbelief - who goes snorkeling in 2' waters in the middle of winter! ! ? ? Well, the teddybear suits and dry suits managed to quell some of those fears and the utter peacefulness and clarity of the waters, made everything else dissipate. ...Colette G., Canada – See more reviews
What To Expect
We will start with the black as we explore the hidden world of the lava field under the Þingvellir National Park. Walking in a cave and discovering the marvels that volcanic activity has created in the past is a trip that everyone can undertake. The Gjábakkahellir cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and is situated in one of the most active volcano areas in the world. After the cave, we dine on a packed lunch before moving on into the blue.
Snorkeling in the Silfra will be our second adventure. The Silfra fissure is one of Iceland's best-kept secrets, an otherworldly scene that is world famous for its heavenly shades of blue. The crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float down with the lazy current. The snorkeling is a relaxing but exotic trip in an environment most will only encounter in their dreams.
The Black & Blue is an amazing trip, a true journey to the borders of reality and dreams.
