Blue Lava Tour consists of Horseback Riding along lava fields and Snorkeling on the unique Silfra fissure, where two of the of the largest tectonic plates meet and flow apart.
We call this tour the ultimate lava tour as we take you horseback riding through the lava fields and witness the amazing landscape surrounding Mount Helgafell. The beautiful hillsides to the Lake Hvaleyrarvatn. While we gallop along the area, we can even spot a troll or two! The paths are excellent as we can also see visibly the great Blafjoll Mountains towering above the horizon. We will take our lunch at the horse center before we head to Thingvellir National Park and to the blue Silfra fissure.
Snorkeling in the Silfra Fissure is the highlight of the adventure. This place is one of Iceland’s pride because this is where two of the Euroasian and the American geological plates collides… and well, sets apart. The continental plates sets apart two centimeters per year which causes the widening of the cracks, it becomes deeper and larger. The crystal clear water gives the feeling of like floating in the space. Snorkeling in Silfra is a relaxing but very unique experience.
