Do two popular Iceland tours in one day. Between the 15th of May and the 15th of September we offer this combo tour in which we snorkel through Silfra and then go whale watching. This tour is for snorkelers that want to make the most out of a day Iceland. We will pick you up at your hotel in the morning and drive with you to the National Park Thingvellir where we will go snorkeling in Silfra. Afterwards we will drive back to Reykjavik and drop you off at the harbor, where you will have the time to eat something before you get on the whale watching boat. It’s an unforgettable trip into the world of whales and sea birds. The various types of whales commonly sighted include mink whales, white-beaked dolphins, harbor porpoises and the popular humpback whales. You will be accompanied by sea birds such as gannets, guillemots, cormorants, arctic terns, and many more. The trip also takes you past several islands inhabited by colonies of puffins, which provides a great photo opportunity!

What to expect? Two Iceland tours combined into one solid program. Start your day with a visit to the underground waters of Silfra Fissure and then head for a sightseeing whale watching tour from Reykjavik old harbor. 

Travel tip: Go under-and-above the waters in Iceland.
