    Anna was great. Thanks Anna! A little disappointing that you don’t actually swim between the tectonic plate divide but an experience nonetheless.

    Once lifetime opportunity to see crystal clear water and swim between 2 tectonic plate. Very well organized, helpful staff. Yes in winter time when air temperature about -15C, the water is warm indeed +2C. Do not afraid of temperature, just be prepared. After tour you can say, I did this!

    We did a snorkel with Marco yesterday. The views were something from another planet and our guide was so friendly and helpful to everyone on the tour. We would highly recommend booking any tour with dive.is, they have great work process from the time you arrive to the time you depart. Be sure to ask for Marco if you can, you will not be disappointed. We also highly recommend getting the photos in advance, it is worth the very little money to have photos to commemorate this magical experience.

    Was picked up from Bus Stop #1- City Hall- in Reykjavik by Guntar/Grétar who drove a small group to the Silfra site about 50 minutes away. I get cold easily and wore my swimsuit and thermals plus used the dry suit thermals and dry suit that was given to us. Arturo was my guide in the group; we were split into three groups of six and he was friendly and knowledgeable. Although the dry suit has boots and we were given semi-dry gloves my hands and feet were painfully cold as we waited awhile on the platform to get in the water. Once in the water the only cold part of me was my face around the snorkel. What a beautiful, clear, stunning view it was being in the water and floating along with the current downstream. I felt relaxed and enjoyed every moment of it! Please note that the neck seal around the dry suit is tight and can be constricting- one guy in our group fainted and was taken to the medical hut for observation. So, when you book this excursion be extra sure you feel comfortable in 2c water and are ok with being encased in a dry suit. Highly recommend and thanks to the professional nature of the Adevnture Vikings guides- such a thrilling experience!

    This was a fantastic experience! Everything on this tour went so smoothly. I had emailed questions multiple times and they were so responsive and helpful. We were picked up in Reykjavic and the bus was very prompt and we weren't waiting a long time in the cold. Our guide /driver was Gretar and he was amazing. First, the bus is the same size as the other mini busses, but holds less people so there is more room for coats and backpacks. Gretar was great at explaining things, encouraging us and answering questions. On the site, another guide, Aurturo (spelling?) was also so kind, encouraging and helpful. Both of them really made the experience great as they are calm, knowledgable, and give clear instructions. The dry suits ARE tight around the neck, so if you have a strong gag reflex or issues with that, be prepared. You can get through it and they helped one of our group by getting a larger hood and adjusting the strap a bit. Practice relaxing breathing and keep looking straight ahead (don't drop your chin). Once you get in the water, you will forget it all. They told us you can wear as many socks as you want, so bring more. I brought 2, my daughter brought 3 and she said her feet were ok. Your face is cold when you get in but it lasts for a minute then you're fine. The water is amazing and so clear. The time goes really fast and you're finished before you know it. The coldest part is waiting to get your dry suit off at the end, because you can't do it by yourself. Even though Gretar gave the disclaimer that he isn't a photographer, our pictures were great and up on the website in the promised time. Highly recommend if you're interested in this.

    The instructors where great! Ensuring we were in small easy to mage groups while in the water (which is crystal clear)! I will thoroughly recommend this tour to everyone - we are so lucky to have access to this park.

    26th February 2023: Due to the cold time of year, Adventure Vikings insisted that we dived the Silfra fissure in 'Dry Suits' (rather than the Wetsuit package that we purchased). This was done at no extra charge. I am a PADI Advanced Diver and needless to say, I accepted the advice offered. The pre-dive instruction, the humour, the professionalism and the care to ensure all in the party were safe was excellent. My colleague and I were guided by Dive Master Bjarni. BJ was Icelandic, spoke excellent english and he added real value to our experience. He checked his GoPro prior to the dive to ensure he had storage capacity and took some great photos which we will treasure.
    Silfra is fed by water originating from Langjökull, Iceland's second largest glacier, about fifty kilometres north of the Þingvallavatn Lake. This meltwater takes 30 to 100 years to percolate through to the fissure, then onto the Þingvallavatn Lake. The emerging, highly filtered groundwater is exceptionally clear.

    The snorkeling was really beautiful. Our guide, Kris, gave us lots of information about the Tectonic plates, and I felt really confident with him leading our group. I was not worried at all about getting into trouble during the actual snorkel part. He was excellent.

    My 18 year old daughter and I were very cold while getting into our dry suits, and unfortunately our dry suits let in water on both of our chests and arms, which was tolerable. However our hands were freezing in the neoprene gloves, and were so cold that it was intolerable. She had to get out as soon as possible, and I was happy that we were only in the water for 20-30 minutes . Our dry suits were not tight enough apparently. Also our fingers/hands became numb, so I'd recommend dry gloves too, not just neoprene gloves.

    We had the most amazing experience snorkeling with DIVE.IS. Our instructor Jake was super friendly and helpful and made the experience amazing. The team is very careful when putting on the equipment and dry suit to ensure that no water would get in. I highly recommend this excursion!

    Our family had a terrific time. "This is the best experience of my life" per our 15 year old. Pawel was friendly and had great stories to share about his wonderful country. His recommendation to cancel all other plans to visit the erupting volcano, did not disappoint. We would highly recommend his tour and his guidance. Also, the photos he took of our family are priceless.

    We did the fly over Iceland experience and it was worth every krona. After moving through a couple of small, informative cinema rooms you get strapped in to a roller coaster style seat and the real fun starts. An incredible 4D experience where you are flown around Iceland seeing it from a perspective that you would otherwise never be able to see. If you are only going to do one thing whilst in Reykjavik then this should be it.
