This tour was fantastic! Our guide Mino was great and made the trip even better. This is a must do while visiting Iceland. The dry suits kept us warm and dry the whole time. They are definitely a process to get into, but Mino was very patient and helpful. They are super tight and restrictive, I think this might be what the claustrophobia disclaimer is about, but I got used to it once we started moving. The only thing left to the elements is your face, but it gets numb rather quickly and you won’t even feel it anymore lol. The silfra is stunning, the clarity and colors are phenomenal. The water is crisp and refreshing, well worth taking a sip. The hot chocolate and snack bars were great to come back to after getting out of the water. I went to the local market afterward and bought all the snack bars they had to take back home and share with everyone! I honestly can’t even find the words to truly express what this experience was like, but it was certainly not like anything I’ve ever done before. I 100% recommend Troll Tours with Mino!

My guide, Ronan, was funny and helpful. It was an amazing experience that everyone should try. I thought the child would be too much, but it wasn't as bad as I envisioned. The view was beautiful.

Pablo was funny and informative. He was great at making sure we were all doing well the entire time whether in the water or just putting on our gear. Pablo was an amazing tour guide and made sure we got incredible pictures. He also gave us history facts and tips for Iceland travel!

Everything was seamless. The directions tell you where to park. Can’t miss them in the lot. They get you all geared up and explain everything very well. 100% worth doing if you’re in Iceland!! Nowhere else in the world can you swim between plate tectonics.
