An exceptionally cool island in every sense of the word, Iceland is a travel adventure destination sitting just below the Arctic Circle, close to the very top of the world. Home to an abundance of phenomenal natural wonders, including the infamous Aurora Borealis, the Nordic country’s Silfra fissure has made its way onto the ‘must-do’ list for avid snorkellers. The reason? It is the only place in the world where you can snorkel directly in a crack between two tectonic plates.

Silfra is located in Thingvellir National Park, a UNESCO world heritage site and the largest natural lake in Iceland. Drifting two centimeters apart per year, the tectonic plates of North America and Europe expose a treasure chest of aquatic wonder for you to explore. Remarkably clear water allows for unrivaled snorkeling conditions, giving visibility of up to 150 to 300 meters. The water travels from the melting glacier, through a lava field and, by the time it reaches the lake, it is almost 100 years old and is completely drinkable. Expect temperatures in the glacial meltwater to be chilly – a cool 2°C to 4°C. But not to worry, you’ll be armed with hot chocolate and cookies to keep you warm!

Another day in Iceland means another unforgettable experience. Set sail on a boat in Faxaflói bay for a fantastic whale watching tour. Home to a thriving ecosystem teeming with life, expect to see Humpback whales, Minke whales, Porpoises and Dolphins. You’re going to want to bring your camera to capture the beauty of these elusive and magnificent wildlife creatures.

During your four days of aquatic adventure, you’ll be staying at Hotel Holt in Reykjavik, a four-star boutique luxury hotel. A hub of tradition and culture, the hotel’s walls are adorned with original Icelandic art, representing the largest privately owned art collection in Iceland. Nestled in the heart of the capital, the modern hotel is centrally located, perfect for an exploration of Iceland’s 1000 years of history in the city’s many museums.

Have a taste of traditional Icelandic fare with an elaborate tasting menu at one of Iceland's most popular restaurants, Fiskmarkaðurinn, or Fish Market. A feast for the senses, the dining destination offers a whirlwind of colours, scents and sounds, emanating from the fishmongers and seamen as they bring in their catch of the day. Preparing the freshest fish and meat of the season in a modern style, Head Chef and co-owner Hrefna Rósa Sætran’s serves dishes of exciting flavours and textures. Guests can enjoy watching each dish being prepared in the open kitchen, which has the country's only robata grill. From the freshest seafood to an unforgettable snorkelling excursion, this Icelandic adventure is filled with the very best the island country has to offer.
