Silfra, a lava fissure filled with crystal clear glacial water, is counted among the top five dive sites in the world by many prominent dive publications. Silfra is best known for its 100 meter underwater visibility and for being the only place in the world where you can dive between two tectonic plates.
On this dive, you will be able to place one hand on the North American continental plate and the other on the Eurasian continental plate. If you are a certified diver at the level of PADI Open Water or the equivalent and have proof of dry suit experience, this is a must-dive site!
