Book this thrilling adventure and dive where the Eurasian and the North American tectonic plates meet at the gorgeous Silfra fissure. The filtered glacial water has a visibility up to 120 metres, making it one of the clearest dive sites in the world.
The Silfra fissure continues to widen ever so slightly every year and it is filled with crystal clear glacial water. The reason for the clearness of the water is because it runs through the lava fields and gets filtered on the way to Silfra. It takes the water a few decades to reach Silfra from the glacier Langjökull and making this most pristine water on the planet and a unique dive site.
Your Silfra diving experience begins with a pick up from your accommodation or from a bus stop in Reykjavík city centre. During the one-hour drive to Þingvellir National Park, your guide will introduce you to the unique geological and cultural history of Silfra and the surrounding Þingvellir area.
