Diving Between Tectonic Plates

Diving Between Tectonic Plates

Silfra is frequently rated as one of the world’s top ten dive sites, with up to 100 meters of underwater visibility.

We take you where few diving tours in the world can – into the continental rift between the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates! Thingvellir National Park is home to Silfra fissure, an out-of-this-world subaquatic chasm of sublime colours, mystical rock formations, serene beauty, and great geological significance.

The crystal-clear water that fills the canyon is the product of glacier meltwater passing through porous lava fields in a slow-filtrating process that takes up to 100 years! The result is water so crisp and clean that underwater visibility is virtually limitless. Drift peacefully along with the lazy current as you soar through the depths and explore a realm beyond description.
