Day 2. Ţingvellir National Park - Snorkeling in Silfra fissure - Geysers - Gullfoss Waterfall

Pick up the car in the morning and embark on your adventure. First up is the historical Ţingvellir National Park, where you will join a snorkelling tour in Silfra fissure. Nestled in the heart of Ţingvellir National Park, Silfra is an otherworldly sight located on top of the tectonic plate rift between Europe and North America. The crystal-clear water in the deep fissure gives you the impression of being weightless as you float down with the lazy current. Silfra is frequently rated as one of the world’s top ten dive sites, and visibility reaches up to 100 metres. The water temperature in Slifra is only couple degrees (Celsius), but don´t worry, you will be provided with a dry suit that will keep you dry and warm. After snorkelling explore the national park. The Mid-Atlantic ridge runs right through Ţingvellir forming an impressive rift valley where Iceland is drifting apart at the rate of 2 cm per year. Ţingvellir National Park, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is where the Icelandic Parliament was established in 930. Ţingvellir is hauntingly beautiful despite its rugged lunar-like landscapes. Next, continue your journey to the geyser area with its numerous hot springs. Strokkur Geyser erupts every 8 minutes in a magnificent display of nature's power as boiling hot water shoots 15 to 20 meters in the air. Continue your adventure and visit Gullfoss (the Golden Waterfall), one of Iceland´s most impressive waterfalls and without a doubt the one that attracts the most visitors. On a sunny day the mist from Gullfoss waterfall forms several magical rainbows for your photographic pleasure.
