About This Diving Experience

No place on Earth touches Silfra Diving. The location is amazing, a giant gaping chasm between the North American and Eurasian continents, its exact position moving with the drifting on the tectonic plates each year. But it is the water – or more precisely, the remarkable purity and clarity, that makes diving in Silfra so unique.

The Silfra ravine has without question the best underwater visibility in the world – if not the entire planet! its about as clear as it gets! And then there’s the temperature, biting cold at around 3℃ as does the waters purity – it travel two thousand years to make the journey – filtering its way through volcanic lava fields. And that’s not all, the mix creates a clarity so powerful that on starting the dive, people have been said to experience vertigo, floating like spacemen over a dark abyss – into the centre of the Earth’s belly.

Iceland’s got some amazing places to dive and Silfra is one of them. The big reason isn’t just because of the Thingvellir National Park – its because a scuba diver can see over +120m – and that’s on a bad day. What’s more, divers can even drink the gin clear water they’re diving in – now that’s one refreshing beverage!
