Float between continents and tectonic plates in one of the world’s most unique freshwater sites.
The crystal clear water at this UNESCO world heritage site in Thingvellir national park will leave you speechless. The Silfra fissure is one of the highest rated dive sites in the world. During this journey, you will snorkel within a crack between the Eurasian and American continents. You’ll experience truly amazing views of the colorful underwater landscape, marine life, and geological formations. Silfra’s water, which filtrates from the nearby Langjokull glacier, is fresh, pristine, and drinkable at around 2°C - 4°C year round. Visibility can reach more than 100 meters, and swimming often feels more like flying.
