Silfra diving: Arctic diving adventure in Iceland
Icelandic tour company Dive Silfra offers snorkelling and diving expeditions into one of the most pristine bodies of water in the world - the Silfra Fissure. Located in the UNESCO designated Thingvellir National Park, the Silfra Fissure is a result of the tectonic drift of the Eurasian and North American plates, and is the only place in the world where dives between the two continental plates are possible. Diving or snorkelling in Silfra is a one-of-a-kind experience!
The crystal-clear glacial water that fills Silfra begins at nearby glacier Langjökull, and takes up to 100 years to slowly filter through 50 km of underground lava fields to finally arrive in the subterranean wells of Lake Thingvallavatn. With spectacular visibility at over 100 meters, the water refracts the light similarly to crystals, creating underwater rainbows that reflect on the lava rocks and green algae below.
For recreational divers and snorkelers, the clarity of the water offers a unique visual experience, and at a constant temperature of 2-4° C, it provides for a deliciously refreshing drink as well.
Dive Silfra offers a wide variety of snorkelling and diving tours based in Thingvellir National Park, Iceland. With industry-leading standards in safety and equipment, the team of professional, experienced, and friendly guides are committed to sharing their passion for diving and the aquatic wildernes.
