Into the Blue - Snorkelling between the continents

Into the Blue - Snorkelling between the continents

Who would think that Iceland had one of the world's top dive sites? The crystal clear water of Silfra fissure offers up to 100m underwater visibility. It is located in Þingvellir National Park, on the rift between the American and Eurasian continents. Snorkelling here gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float down with the lazy current. It is relaxing and exotic at the same time. The water is cold but you are provided with a specially made thermal suit. Available daily all year.
