Snorkeling and Horseback Riding

Snorkeling and Horseback Riding

Snorkeling and Horseback Riding is a perfect combination for those who want to experience a great outdoor day in Iceland.

You’ll enjoy snorkeling in the freshwater fissure Silfra, which is known to be one of the best dive sites in the world. And you will enjoy riding an Icelandic horse known for their five gaits.

This is a pure nature trip. You’ll be snorkeling in either wetsuit or drysuit all depending on your wishes. By wearing the wetsuit you will be able to dive underneath the surface of Silfra and we really recommend this choice rather than the drysuit as you will get more out of the tour instead of just floating on the surface. Silfra is a freshwater fissure, about 60-63 metres where it is deepest,  you can almost see end to end as the water is so clear. Silfra is situated at the UNESCO World Heritage site, Thingvellir.

The horseback riding will take place at the friendly family run farm where you’ll ride on the Icelandic horse which has five gaits. You will enjoy the Icelandic nature at the same time you are getting to know these small friendly horses.

The tour is operated by DaytripFactory Partner.
