“Surreal snorkalling experience!”

Helen R, Vancouver, Canada

Area is beautiful and the snorkelling surreal. The water is as blue and clear as the photos! Guide was very helpful, equipment in good condition, and we were well-looked-after the whole time. Excellent!

“Great personal attention”

AndzLSA, Johannesburg, South Africa

The size of the groups was fabulous (max 8), and we were 6, there was more individual interaction and the personality of the group blended well with our guide, Bikkie. We started at one of the caves that was previously a lava pipe. Our guide explained the formation of the pipe and the structures within the pipe. He was very knowledgeable in the caves and in Iceland in general and was willing to answer any question that came up. The snorkeling took place at the Silfra fissure, where the tectonic plates of Europe and North America meet/split. Our guide helped us into the drysuits and was very patient with some of the anxiety that was felt.

It was a great experience!!!! Despite the 2 degree C water, it is something that I'm very pleased that I did.

Our guide, Bikkie, was fabulous! Had a great sense of humour and really made us all feel comfortable and involved in the entire day's experience.
