Tour Details
Freediving in Silfra is an experience that you won’t forget especially if you love the underwater world! 

National Geographic describes Silfra as one of the top dive sites in the world. You dont need any experience to do this tour. Find out for yourself as you glide between tectonic plates diving on pure, filtered crystal clear glacial meltwater. 

You might wonder, freediving in Iceland in a glacial spring between two tectonic plates – Sign me up. Indeed our Freediving tour allows you to experience the freedom of emerging yourself in this unique activity in plain style and comfort.

Extremely warm wetsuits, our 2 piece Yamamoto neoprene wetsuits are 9 mm thick, they are the warmest suits in the range not compromising flexibility and comfort. During summer time you might want to flush the Silfra glacial water inside the suit, so good they are at keeping you warm (you won’t find better wetsuits in Iceland).

The extra equipment is top graded and gives you a unique experience, making it easy and smooth to dive and enjoy amazing sensation in this crystal clear maze.

You will have to bring your swimsuit and will change in a heated facility with all the space necessary for comfort in Silfra.

Our instructors will cover concepts and techniques like:
  • Breathing techniques
  • Ear equalization methods
  • Efficient long apnea fins use
  • Dive visualization
  • Safety procedures
  • Mammalian diving reflex
This activity is available for everyone that wants to try freediving Apnea – no experience required.

The maximum depth allowed by the park for underwater activities is 18meters, that is the average depth of the fissure, and its plenty of space and depth for you to dive, spin, cruise and dance under the water.

An extremely recommendable activity by our instructors for adventure seekers that love unique sensations since this is the most breathtaking(literally) way to experience this special place in the most historic landmark in Iceland.

This is the ultimate bucket list trip. Only available in Iceland.
