As the cleft is remarkably clear, the light manages to shine further down than in most other diving spots.
Heading to the bottom is a positive experience if you're diving in Silfra.

Join us for a once in a lifetime experience - Freediving in Silfra fissure at  Þingvellir national park. National Geographic describes Silfra as one of the top dive sites in the world. You can find out if this is true for yourself as you glide between tectonic plates diving on pure, filtered glacial meltwater. This is the ultimate bucket list trip, and can only be done in Iceland.

This Freediving tour allows you to experience the freedom of emerging yourself in this unique activity in plain style and freedom. You'll be equipped with extremely warm wetsuits perfect for these conditions; our 2 piece Yamamoto neoprene wetsuits are 9 mm thick and are the warmest suits in the range not compromising flexibility and comfort. 

The extra equipment is top graded and gives you a unique experience, making it easy and smooth to dive and enjoy amazing sensation in this crystal clear maze. You will have to bring your swimsuit and will change in a heated facility with all the space necessary for comfort in Silfra.

Before you enter the water, your instructors will cover all the basics needed for an enjoyable dive, such as breathing techniques, ear equalisation methods, efficient long apnea fins use, dive visualisation and safety procedures

This activity is available for everyone that wants to try freediving Apnea - no experience required. The maximum depth allowed by the park for underwater activities is 18meters, that is the average depth of the fissure, and its plenty of space and depth for you to dive, spin, cruise and dance under the water.

An extremely recommendable activity by our instructors for adventure seekers that love unique sensations since this is the most breathtaking way to experience this special place in the most historic landmark in Iceland. It is also possible to combine Drysuit and Freediving tour together with if your other half is not so keen into wearing a wetsuit

Great guide and great tour. Never been freediving before and it was explained well. Dynamo helped us as we dove and gave us tips to dive better. Beautiful view. Awesome to have pictures included! Amazing experience!

It was an amazing experience! It was my first time freediving and I'm glad it took this opportunity. The wetsuit did a great job keeping my body warm and cozy. But my feet and hands (especially hands) were freezing cold... just so you know, so there's no surprise when you do this. Also, another girl and I had a more difficult time diving down compared to the guys in our group. So if you've tried scuba diving / free diving before, and you have a rough idea as to how much weight you need on your weight belt, you might wanna communicate with the guide before hands.
