Snorkeling in Silfra
One of the most unique dive experiences here in Iceland is snorkeling in Silfra, a fissure between the Eurasian and North American plates in Þingvellir national park. The glacial meltwater is filtered through subterranean lava rock for up to 100 years before it reaches Silfra, meaning the resulting dive water is some of the clearest, most pristine water on Earth with visibility of over 100 meters.
The Icelandic horse has been bred in isolation since the island’s settlement over 1000 years ago, making it a truly unique animal. The Icelandic horse is known for its gentle temperament, eagerness to connect with its rider and impressive power.
The breed is also remarkable for its fifth gait, known as the tölt, where the horse drops its center of gravity to glide over uneven terrain like lava fields. These wonderful animals are a truly remarkable way to get in touch with Icelandic nature.
A quintessentially Icelandic experience is trekking across the landscape in one of these monsters. They’re necessarily equipped for exploring destinations in the highlands like the Landmannalaugar area and many of the glaciers.
