Description

Blessed with amazingly clear freshwater and situated between 2 continental plates, the Silfra Fissure is a one-of-a-kind scuba diving spot that can't be missed. Explore an ethereal, underwater world as you make your way through one of the most unique sites in the world.

Depart from Reykjavik with your group, heading towards the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Þingvellir National Park. The Silfra Fissure lies in the heart of the park, directly on top of the rift between the North American and Eurasian continents. As soon as you're suited up, slip into the freshwaters between the plates and enter a brand new world.

Below the fissure's surface, you can see with over 328-foot (100-m) visibility thanks to the cold waters from the Langjökull glacier, which are filtered through porous underground lava for up to 100 years before seeping into Þingvellir's underground wells. Make your way between the jagged faces of 2 continents, venturing to a depth of 59 feet (18 m) to see all that Silfra has to offer before returning to Reykjavik.

  • Please note: This is a challenging dive where you need to be capable of carrying heavy equipment up to 400m.

  • It is highly recommended that your last dive was within 24 months ago. If your last dive was not within this time period we recommend taking a refreshment course before diving in Silfra.

*Like all divers should be aware of, it is strongly advised to wait 24hrs after diving to fly.

  • Admission fees

Excellent dives. Expedia’s website did not mention that you get 2 dives in Silfra, and that makes the price much more economical. You are basically paying around $160 to rent all the gear and air you need for two dives, it covers the transportation and hotel pickup, you get cookies and hot chocolate, and all of this with a great tour guide. The dive was awesome, albeit cold, but you know that going in. I’d give Arctic Adventures 10 stars if I could!
