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. Silfra Snorkeling Tour is an exotic trip in an environment most will only encounter in their dreams.
