We start with the black as we explore the hidden world of the lava field under the Þingvellir national park. Walking in a cave and discovering the marvels that volcanic activity has created in the past is a trip that everyone can undertake. The Gjábakkahellir cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and is situated in one of the most active volcano areas in the world. After the cave we dine on a packed lunch before moving on into the blue...
Snorkeling in Silfra is our second adventure. The Silfra fissure is one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets, an otherworldly scene that is world famous for its heavenly shades of blue. The crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float down with the lazy current. The snorkeling is a relaxing but exotic trip in an environment most will only encounter in their dreams.
The Black & Blue is an amazing trip, a true journey to the borders of reality and dreams.
Trip difficulty 2 out of 5 possible.
We recommend hiking boots, warm and windproof clothing, gloves and warm undergarments (fleece / wool / thermal) and warm socks. Hiking boots and windproof jackets and pants can be rented from the tour operator.
Guidance as shown under Guidance below
Up to 24 hours prior to tour departure.
PLEASE NOTE: Although you don´t need to "swim" while snorkeling, we recommend that you can. The reason for that is people that can´t swim tend to panic when they are in the water. You have to be comfortable with floating in water.
All departures, all year round
