Information about Nesgjá

Nesgja is a fresh water 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 offering 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!
