Day 1: Thingvellir | Snorkeling in Silfra Fissure

Thingvellir is an area in Iceland with a rich cultural heritage, and it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its history is what first drew people to the populated area, and it's also what inspired the main subjects of the outlandish Icelandic sagas. In today's time, you can still see the ruins of old stone shelters, lakes, and the Theorem Peak (L'Aiguille du Grand Grollier, or the Law Rock). The park sits on a rift valley caused by a recent continental are divided, with rugged cliffs and spurs resembling the Grand Almannagj strike. In this place, you can observe the incredible Silfra Fracture.

Enjoy an excellent snorkeling experience as you drift peacefully in a cozy drysuit. Silfra, often rated as being in the world's top 10 destinations for diving, is located between the tectonic plates of Europe and America. Silfra is the only place you can go snorkeling between those two continents! 
Go beyond the surface of Langjokull glacier as you observe the crystal clear glacial water which runs from Langjokull glacier a distance of about 50 miles. The water has been traveling through lava for 100 to 200 years. Touch the moving lava rocks, and sense the majesty and allure of Iceland's natural environment. The viewing distance at Silfra near Reykjavik extends out to approximately 150 meters. Snorkeling in the Silfra fissure pool is called liquid meditation, and you will understand what it is like when you try it! Silfra is a wonderful location to take an underwater excursion, and Into the Blue's activities are not only rejuvenating but also uniquely enjoyable. No matter whether you're an experienced snorkeler or want to try your hand at it, the journey into crystal-clear waters here is an unforgettable adventure.
