    Activity Information

    Intro

    The Silfra fissure, is known as one of the top dive sites in the world for two main reasons. First, the Silfra fissure is actually a crack between the North American and Eurasian continents, meaning that you dive or snorkel right where the continental plates meet and drift apart about 50px per year. Silfra is the only place where one can dive or snorkel directly in the crack between two continental plates. Secondly, the underwater visibility in the Silfra fissure is over 100 meters, which creates an underwater experience that will rarely, if ever, be surpassed. The reasons for this astounding water clarity are twofold: the water is cold (2°C – 4°C year round ) as it is glacial water from the nearby Langjökull and this water is filtered through porous underground lava for 30-100 years until it reaches the north end of Thingvellir lake, seeping out from underground wells. The Silfra water is as pristine as water can get and you can drink it at anytime during your dive or snorkel.


    Itinerary information:

    • Diving Silfra Day Tour

    • If you would like to ride with us your Silfra Diving Day Tour begins when we pick you up from your accommodation in Reykjavík. During the one-hour drive to Thingvellir National Park, your guide will introduce you to the unique geological and cultural history of Silfra and the surrounding Thingvellir area. (If you have your own transportation, you also have the option of meeting us directly at Thingvellir Park. Click on this link and you find directions to the meeting point in Thingvellir.)

    • Upon arrival at the Silfra fissure, your guide will give you a detailed briefing of the dive site and will then assist you in setting up the dive equipment. We use only high quality BARE and Aqualung brand SCUBA equipment and APEX or Aqualung regulators.

    • Then it’s time to take the plunge and experience diving into Silfra’s pristine, crystal clear water. Filtered over decades by Iceland’s volcanic basaltic rock, you can easily take a sip during your dive; you won’t find purer drinking water.

    • During your dive you will explore the four main parts of Silfra. You will float through Big Crack, Silfra’s narrowest section, where you can have your ‘Dive Between the Continents’ photo taken. As the fissure widens you will find yourself in the majestic Silfra Hall with the possibility of local geese and ducks paddling overhead. Near to the opening to Thingvallavatn we will enter the Silfra Cathedral; if there are divers ahead you will see the ‘chandelier effect’ of their rising bubbles. Your dive is finished in the endless visibility of Silfra Lagoon.

    • After this first dive, we will make our way back along a challenging but rewarding 250 meter path with our dive gear and then warm our hands and spirits with hot chocolate and cookies. Don’t hesitate to ask your guide if you need some assistance with your gear.


    • Silfra Snorkeling Tour

    • If you choose to use our transportation service, we will pick you up at your accommodation in Reykjavík and drive with you to Thingvellir National Park. During the one-hour drive, your guide will provide you with background information about the unique geology and cultural history of Silfra as well as the surrounding area of the Thingvellir UNESCO world heritage site. (If you book a tour without transportation, you will meet us directly at Thingvellir Park.)

    • Upon arrival at Silfra, your guide will give you your dry suit and snorkeling equipment. Your guide will explain how to use this equipment and how to ensure that you will be warm and comfortable during your 30 to 40 minute snorkeling tour of Silfra Hall, Silfra Cathedral, and Silfra Lagoon.

    • During your snorkel you will explore the four main parts of Silfra. You will float through Big Crack, Silfra’s narrowest section and where the continental plates are so close you can almost touch them.
The fissure then widens into Silfra Hall. Here the full spectrum of Silfra’s colors and clarity become all the more apparent. At this point if you look at just the right angle you can see all the way to Thingvallavatn, over 150m away. Near to the opening to Thingvallavatn we will enter the Silfra Cathedral; as the depth reaches 23m you feel like you are flying over the boulders and glacial silt. Your snorkel is finished in the endless visibility of Silfra Lagoon.
