Snorkeling in Iceland is an activity that everyone who has learnt to swim, enjoys extreme sports and is not afraid of water or cold can enjoy. Non-swimmers and pregnant women are not allowed on this tour.

The Silfra fissure in Thingvellir National Park is notorious for its amazing visibility and underwater landscape. Melt water from Langjökull glacier, located about 50 kilometres from Lake Thingvellir, travels for over 30 years through lava fields before flowing into Silfra River. This filtering process makes the Silfra water as clear as water can be. Snorkelers experience a visibility of over 100 meters and can drink the water while swimming in it. The fissure is the result of the American and Eurasian continental plates drifting apart. Divers are literally diving between the continents. Your guide will walk with you to the platform and give you a briefing before gearing up. Since the water is cold, the snorkeling tour is conducted in dry suits. These suits will keep you dry and the thermo undergarments provided will keep you warm and comfortable.

When you’re planning a trip to Iceland, the idea of taking a bath in a load of beer isn’t usually the first thing that comes to mind. However, when you dig a little deeper into some of the unbelievable things you can do in Iceland, you realise it isn’t any ordinary country.

Beer bath, where you bathe in young beer, live beer yeast, hops, water, beer oil and beer salt.

The beer we use for the bath is in the early stages of fermentation, and at that stage the beer has very low pH which will tighten and soften your hair follicles and is cleansing for your hair and skin.

Brewers yeast that has gone through the process of fermenting beer, is a great source of nearly the whole Vitamin B scale, which has a very revitalising effect on skin and hair and is also a great source of protein, potassium, iron, zinc and magnesium.

The beer hops are rich in antioxidants and alpha acids. The oils and minerals from the plant have antiinflammatory effect to the skin and is also used to decrease the surface blood vessels. Hops are proven to have soothing and relaxing effects on muscles and body.

Bath temperature is 37 - 39°C and is filled up with a new blend after each guest.
