Diving in Silfra Tour – meet on location in Thingvellir National Park

Dry suit diving tour at Silfra Fissure

Embark on our Diving Silfra Day Tour to experience an unparalleled underwater expedition in the world’s most extraordinary aquatic setting, boasting unmatched visibility.

Silfra represents a geological crevice shaped by the movement of the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates. This exceptionally clear glacial water, offering visibility exceeding 100 meters, has been meticulously filtered by subterranean lava rocks over decades. The underwater scenery awaiting you during your Diving Tour is genuinely one-of-a-kind and cannot be found anywhere else on Earth.
