Snorkeling & Laxnes

Now here’s a diverse combo containing the two popular activities in Iceland, swimming and horseback riding.  The day starts with pickup by Arctic Adventures for a snorkeling tour in Silfra which is located in Thingvellir national park.  If you haven´t heard of Silfra yet it’s a rift formed in the divergent tectonic boundary between the North American and Eurasian plates and offers crystal clear water making you feel like you’re hovering instead of swimming.

After the brisk swim you’ll be taken to Laxnes farm where you can have lunch and then before you know it you’ll be off on an adventurous afternoon ride.

Pickup starts at 8:30am for this combo.

PLEASE NOTE: Before booking this combo tour please visit the Silfra Guide site for more detailed information on requirements and conditions for snorkeling in the Silfra fissure.


Laxnes & Silfra

No, it’s optional but every now and then we have trouble finding our clients during pickup and a quick text message is often better than e-mailing as you’ll typically see it sooner.  The driver has limited time to wait so it can make a difference.

Please note that we will only call you in rare cases during pickup when the driver is unable to send a text or email and knows you’re in the area.  We do our very best to find our clients and the easiest way to solve booking errors is fast communication.

Arctic Adventures handle the initial pickup and the bus will be clearly marked with their logo.  Their pickup starts at 8:30 and lasts about 30 minutes.  Make sure you’re at the pickup location at the right time as you might be the first pickup of the day.

Make sure you list your email and/or phone number so they can contact you if they have trouble finding you.

Please Note:  This combo uses Arctic Adventures´ pickup list on the drop down menu which is not the same as ours

Please visit the Silfra Guide for detailed information on what you´ll need to bring and what you should leave.



Our online booking system, Skapalon, is a very reliable system which automatically reserves your seats from a pool of availability for each tour.  Once you’ve completed your reservation you should receive an email from the system with a ticket showing your tour date and information on pickup location and time, or if you choose to travel to the farm yourself, in which case the ticket shows what time to arrive. If you do not receive an email very soon, check your junk mail folder or contact us in case the email address was input incorrectly.

When booking a combo tour, the system automatically books the tour with each operator respectively. Our partners have been operating these tours with us for years, some decades, resulting in smooth transitions between companies.
