Into the Blue

 
Code: IFH-AA-ITB
 
Description: The Silfra fissure is one of Iceland’s best kept secrets. Silfra, which is situated in the heart of Þingvellir, the site of the world’s oldest parliament, is an otherworldly scene. The crystal clear water in the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float down with the lazy current. Frequently rated as one of the worlds top ten dive sites, the Silfra offers up to 100 meters of underwater visibility and is  located on top of the separation between Europe and America! After an hour of snorkeling we climb out and head back to the car. Into the Blue is a relaxing but exotic trip in an environment most will only encounter in their dreams.
