Tripadvisor has just announced it's traveler's Choice for the best tours and experiences in the world. We are not surprised to see two fantastic Iceland experiences on their lists. 
The Travelers' Choice Best of the Best celebrates experiences and attractions with exceptional revies and opinions from the Tripadvisor community over a 12-month period. These experiences are among fewer than 1% of Tripadvisor's 8 million listings, so they are truly exclusive in their service level, uniquness and quality. 

They Reykjavík Food Walk makes the list and you can of course book it here on Hey Iceland. The Silfra Snorkeling experience also makes the list for the best water sports activities in the world.

3.  Silfra: Snorkeling Between Tectonic Plate - Iceland

During your snorkel you will explore the four main parts of Silfra. You will float through Big Crack, Silfra’s narrowest section and where the continental plates are so close you can almost touch them. The fissure then widens into Silfra Hall. Here the full spectrum of Silfra’s colours and clarity become all the more apparent. At this point if you look at just the right angle you can see all the way to Thingvallavatn, over 150m away. Near to the opening to Thingvallavatn we will enter the Silfra Cathedral; as the depth reaches 23m you feel like you are flying over the boulders and glacial silt. Your snorkel is finished in the endless visibility of Silfra Lagoon.

Make sure to drink some of the Silfra water while you are snorkeling! Who knows when you will be able to drink water so pure again.
