Immerse yourself in the clearest water in the world and float between two continents in Iceland! A snorkeling adventure in the famous Silfra fissure is an unforgettable experience.
Þingvellir national park
Þingvellir national park (also known as Thingvellir national park) is an area of great cultural, natural and geological significance.
The two main attractions here that draw people to the location is the fact that Þingvellir is the location of the world's first parliament as well as the place where the tectonic plates of America and Eurasia are slowly drifting apart from each other. The parliament that was formed here is known as the Alþingi and it still operates today although they have moved the main operations to Reykjavik. Meetings were held here though between 930 and 1798.
Snorkel in Iceland at one of the top dive sites in the world, situated in Thingvellir National Park, only about 50 kilometres from Reykjavik. We make this amazing experience easy thanks to our included pick up and friendly staff.
Silfra fissure exists due to the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates separating around 2 centimetres a year – leaving a rift in the landscape between them. This rift is filled with glacial water from Langjökull glacier that has been filtered through lava fields for decades before reaching Silfra – making the water exceptionally clear and drinkable. Make sure you taste it while you glide through the fissure between two continents – there is nothing quite like crystal clear glacial water.
Experience the incredible visibility exceeding 100 meters, along with the breathtaking dramatic sights as rays of sunlight stretches its arms through the pristine waters, touching the rocks and algae growing on the walls of the canyon. Or watch as the snowflakes melt on top of the still, see-through water on a cold, crisp winter day.
Wearing a drysuit makes snorkeling in 2-4 degree Celsius (35 degree Fahrenheit) water achievable – without experiencing the cold. With a thermal undergarment and the protection of the drysuit, you manage to stay dry and warm.
