There’s quite nothing like it; going into a cave and discovering the sights that volcanic activity has created in the past. The cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and is located in one of the most active volcano areas in the world. After you have gone down and under it’s time to grab some lunch before moving on into clear waters of Silfra. Snorkeling Silfra is truly an otherworldly experience with scenery that is famous for its blissful shades of blue. In crystal clear waters, Silfra fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float with the drowsy current. This snorkeling trip is both exotic and relaxing in environment that most people will only encounter in their dreams.
