Absolutely amazing! Our guide Inigo was great. Made it a very easy process and enjoyable. One piece of advice though ware thick socks! feet got abit chilly in the dry suit
Nature at its best!
Akshay_A, Sep 2023
This is absolutely magical of a place! Gretar took amazing care of us. He went above and beyond to ensure all of our dry suites were properly put on. He took great photos of us on his gopro and promptly shared it with us. Highly recommend this tour!
Great unique experience
Melanie_V, Sep 2023
Excellent experience. Interesting Cold but not ùnbareable - did regret wearing dry suit as very uncomfortable and although booked for normal wet suit was given drysuit. Ppl who did wear wet suits said it was absolutely fine (june)
Must do!
Angela_K, Sep 2023
This was the coolest experience! The clarity of the water was amazing and felt like you were in a different world compared to the view from the surface. Our guide was very knowledgeable and took great pics for us to share. Definitely a must do when visiting the area!
Snorkel of a lifetime.

Great experience. The guide made me feel safe throughout the adventure. The views in the water was breathtaking.
Donna_M, Sep 2023
My husband and son said that it was fantastic. Their guide (Luis) was informative and very personable. The drysuit kept them warm. It was weird when walking on land, but changed once you were in the water. You could see a long way down below. Was crystal clear. Also, you could see a lot of fish, algae, rock formations and caverns.
Cool experience!
Curtis_H, Sep 2023
The guide was awesome- Grezar. He was very funny and made sure we were comfortable. Water was very cold on your face/ lips and slightly on hands, but 2 layered wet suit with your own base layer underneath kept the rest of our bodies warm. Most of the time of excursion is putting on gear, but snorkeling itself was a little exhausting so you wouldn’t want to do it for much longer. Awesome experience though.
incredible experience

Our guide had blonde hair and in his early 20’s and was very patient! I think his name is Bjarni. He explained everything very clearly
Unique experience

Super friendly instructor and the lake is amazing! Very unique experience. It’s not so cold as I expected.
Awesome tour!
Amanda_M, Aug 2023
What an incredible, once in a lifetime experience that can only be done in Iceland! The colours and visibility in the water were unbelievable! Our guide, Bjarni, was very professional and took good care of us. His humour and attentiveness ensured that we had a memorable time. Would definitely recommend this tour and our guide!
Delaney_E, Aug 2023
So much more beautiful in person then in photos. Lotta was so great and friendly. Was not at cold as I anticipated. 10/10 would do it again!
The water is incredibly...
Hania_O, Aug 2023
The water is incredibly clear. It seems magical. The guide was very nice and helpful. And we weren't cold at all!
Overall this experience...
Chelsea_S, Aug 2023
Overall this experience was great! All of the staff were incredibly friendly and helped us through the occasional moments of panic in our group, fear of cold water (we knew it was going to be cold but knowing and actually getting into the water are very different things). We all felt super safe during the entire process and we all had a great time. The pictures we got at the end were great and a nice addition to our trip's photo album.
Just do it
Filip_S, Aug 2023
You can watch this on pics but that is not the real thing. Just do it Top equipment Very supportive crew Breathtaking views below the water: the cathedral, etc. Even fish! We went 2 days in a row Thank you very much for guiding us Bjarni and Iñago
Lotta is great!
Erica_B, Aug 2023
An amazing experience!!! Lotta was a great guide and made the experience even better! This is a must and would recommend.
Lotta was an amazing tour...
Jewel_M, Aug 2023
Lotta was an amazing tour guide, extremely informative explaining instructions and things during the trek. She took pictures and made suggestions of how to try to take different poses. She was attentive, aware, and on the ball when we saw a fish and I asked if she could snap a picture of it for our excursion photo's. Cold only around small portion of cheeks and forehead. Hands were a tolerable cold. Great adventure. So glad I did it. I loved it. Thank you so much Lotta!
Great experience!

Sandro was a great guide, he made sure everyone was comfortable in the drysuits and at ease in the water. We had to spend a while waiting in full gear in line to get in the water, but the guide made sure we were not too hot. The water felt very cold on the lips (the only exposed skin) at first, but we got used to it very quickly and even after 30 minutes in the water didn’t feel cold. The visibility in the water is truly amazing!
Great experience
Monica_G, Aug 2023
We loved this unique snorkeling experience. Only your lips get cold. It was beautiful. Our guide Levin was great.
