Diving in Silfra


Diving in Lake Thingvalla

Located in the heart of the World Heritage site Thingvellir, the Silfra lava crack is one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets. This excursion consists of 2 dives into the magical underwater world at Silfra, one of the best diving spots in the world! The otherworldly scene of the Silfra spans the crack where the European and the American continental plates meet. The crystal clear water in the deep crack gives you a feeling of weightlessness as you float in the gently current. Visibility in the clear water is astounding, and the depth of the crack varies between 20-40 meters.
