Amazing visibility and underwater landscape

The Silfra fissure in Þingvellir National Park is a great place to dive in because of it is incredible visibility and underwater landscape. The water of Silfra is melt water from Iceland‘s second largest glacier, Langjökull. The glacier is 50 kilometres away, and the water travels for over 30 years through the lava fields before flowing into Silfra river. This filtering process makes Silfra‘s water as clear as water can be. Divers experience a visibility of over 100 metres and can drink the water on their dives.

Divers will be diving between the continents because the Silfra fissure is the result of the American and Eurasian continental plates drifting apart.

Before you gear up, your guide will walk with you to the platform and give you a diving briefing. Since the water is between 2° and 4°C, the dives are conducted in dry suits. If you have not dived in a dry-suit before, your guide will show you how to use it. After the first dive, you will be offered coffee and snack before going for the second dive. The tour lasts between 6 and 8 hours in total. All necessary equipment is provided, including undergarments that will keep you warm and comfortable under your dry-suit.
