Trip to the Gjábakkahellir cave and snorkeling in the Silfra Fissure

We start with the black as we explore the hidden world of the lava field under the Þingvellir national park. Walking in a cave and discovering the marvels that volcanic activity has created in the past is a trip that everyone can undertake.

The Gjábakkahellir cave is a perfect example of an Icelandic lava tube and is situated in one of the most active volcano areas in the world. After the cave we dine on a packed lunch before moving on into the blue.

Snorkelling in Silfra is our second adventure. The Silfra fissure is one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets, an otherworldly scene that is world famous for its heavenly shades of blue. The crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float down with the lazy current. The snorkelling is a relaxing but exotic trip in an environment most will only encounter in their dreams. The Black & Blue is an amazing trip, a true journey to the borders of reality and dreams.

Silfra is a magnificent place and it is a feeling like no other to discover the secret underwater canyon between Eurasia and America that makes Iceland a most unusual and unique snorkelling and dive site in the world.
