Nesgja is a freshwater fissure in North Iceland, close to Husavik and Asbyrgi. It is one of Iceland‘s top dives.   

As with the Silfra fissure at Thingvellir, Nesgja bears witness to the tectonic drift, being situated where the Eurasian and American plates meet. While shallow (4 meters deep), Nesgja is amazing in its beauty, crystal clear and offers an underwater view of over 100 meters. You might also be able to spot the occasional arctic charr while diving in Nesgja, so keep your eyes open!

The best way to visit this area is on a relaxed self drive tour. One of the best options for doing so is this 7-day Arctic Coast Way self drive, available in the summer months.
