Drysuit Snorkeling in Silfra
Silfra is one of the top dive sites in the world and is situated in the UNESCO World Heritage Site, Thingvellir, only about 50 km from Reykjavik. Silfra is a freshwater fissure about 60-63 meters deep, where you can almost see end to end as the water is so clear. The water is so pristine it feels like flying.
By snorkeling in dry suit you will get protection from the cold water if the fissure as the dry suit is constructed from layers of insulating fabric. However, we always recommend you rather take the wetsuit as you will have so much more fun. Adventure Vikings is the only Icelandic company that offers wetsuit snorkeling in Silfra and we can assure you that you won’t regret snorkeling in the wetsuit. Instead of just floating heavily on the surface like you do in a drysuit you will be able to dive into the fissure in the wetsuit. No diving experience or diving license is needed.
