Overview
Enjoy a day of diving in the extraordinary Þingvellir National Park on the outskirts of Reykjavik. The excursion includes 2 dives in the crystal-clear Silfra Fissure, one of the highest rated diving spots in the world.
What to Expect
This amazing day trip includes 2 dives in the volcanic Silfra Ravine, one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets. It is situated in the heart of Þingvellir, the site of the world’s oldest parliament and a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

You will discover an otherworldly scene, located directly on top of the rift between the continents of America and Europe, where the crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you glide along with the lazy current. Visibility is amazing and is only limited by the density of the water itself. Depth varies from 30 to 100 feet (10 to 30 meters), making it without question one of the best dive sites in the world.

PADI open water or compatible is required to take the tour, and PADI advanced and dry suit certificates are recommended. All dives are performed in a dry suit. But if you meet the requirements, you will enjoy an otherworldly scene that is famous for its heavenly shades of blue.

Please also note the following: 

This is a challenging dive and you need to be capable of carrying heavy equipment up to 400m.

It is highly recommended that your last dive was within 24 months. If your last dive was not within this time period it is recommended that you take a refreshment course before diving in Silfra. 

It is strongly advised to wait 24 hours after diving before flying.
