Description

This world-class dive tour includes two dives in Silfra ravine, one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets. It is situated in the heart of Þingvellir National Park, the founding place of the world’s oldest parliament and a UNESCO world heritage site. Silfra is an otherworldly scene located in the lava field directly on top of the continental rift valley between America and Europe. The slow current gives one a perfect pace to explore this beautiful area. The freshwater visibility is an unmatched specimen, so wide and long that sometimes it is only limited by the density of the water itself. Depth varies from 10 to 40 meters. The dive depth is limited to 18 meters by park regulations. PLEASE NOTE: In the wintertime, if the temperature falls below -0°C there will only br one extended dive. This is because the dive equipment will freeze up when you exit the water.
