The cave was really good, and the guide talked so many interesting stories. The snorkeling.... definitely an experience... But is more about saying you did it, and the experience d the cold water.... because while you're doing it, what you see is not that amazing... its just water and rocks. Your head, hair and hands will get wet. Although you'll only feel really cold in your hands and part of your face. After you get out of the water, you need to walk all wed and cold for about 5 mts to the bus. Terrible cold!
Best day out ever!!
For caving make sure your clothing is quite protective as there is crawling involved. Dont take a bag in the cave!
The guide was one of the nicest young guys i have met!
Such a cool experience!
Snorkling was mind blowing!! Didnt feel cold in the suit.
Probably the best value for money tour in Iceland ;) Seriously though, you get to see lava caves from a thoysand years ago and the majestic waters of silfra all in one tour...and a few extras along the way if you have a good guide like i had with Saga Lif!
Great tour! Only wished the time in the water would have been longer, such amazing sights!!
Had an amazing time on this tour! Our tour guide Oliver was very accommodating, friendly and professional. The cave was super interesting, the walls looked like melted wax and the floor was covered in large rocks and boulders making for an interesting 1.3 km hike. if you have mobility challenges - this is not the tour for you as you had to ensure you watched where you walked as you climbed and there were a few areas where it could be challenging to descend over the rocks. I was traveling with my best friend and we loved it. It was a great adventure!
Snorkeling in Silfra was also amazing! Oliver turned us over to his work colleague Julian and team who assisted us in getting on all the gear. First you put on a one piece snow suit with booties, then comes the wet suit, full head mask and mittens. There is a small walk from the area you suit up to the water and given I felt like the Pillsbury dough boy it was quite hard to move, however it was all well worth it! The water was cold only on your face and hands, however you quickly go numb. The view is amazing and the experience was incredible. I highly recommend this tour and give it a 5 out of 5!
Great tour. My 13 year old daughter and I both had a blast. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience.
We were BLOWN AWAY!! The cave hike was amazing! It is a little cold and wet...I definitely recommend water proof pants and jacket, and gloves, but you do get sweaty because there are sections where you have to crawl. The cave never gets to a point where you can't get through though-the guide is really great and explains each section of the cave before you enter.
After the cave, you drive to another location and Snorkel where two tectonic plates are coming apart. It's an incredible experience. When you're putting on the gear you might think it's not worth it, but it totally is. The only part of your body that gets cold in the water is your chin! After about 5 min though, you're used to it and you can enjoy the amazing clear water. I thought I might need a swimsuit, but you don't! Just some leggings and a tshirt to wear under the gear.
Last, bring a lunch!! They only stop at a gas station-no food stops.
Wonderful trip. Great guide Richard
I highly recommend this company for this tour. We used other tour companies for the rest of our travel in Iceland and wish we had used these guys for everything. They were friendlier and more knowledgeable than other tour companies we used. Also, the group was small by design so we didn't have the headaches that go along with larger tour groups.

Amazing day trip! Our tour guide, Oliver, was great! I enjoyed the cave more than I would have expected. Snorkeling was fun too but for all the preparation it takes, it didn't seem like we were in the water all that long. And it was my first time doing that kind of snorkeling so I was a little uncomfortable with all the gear/equipment and worrying about leaks and such. But it worked out quite well. It makes me want to pursue scuba diving! The water was so beautiful. I love being able to say I've been between the North American and Eurasian plates!
