Cold water diving is becoming popular, as more and more people discover the breathtaking arctic beauty of Iceland. It’s a thrilling experience of raw wonder quite unlike anything you’ve experienced on dives anywhere else in the world, and it’s all waiting for you to jump right in.
You’ve probably been to some of the best warm water sites in the world – perhaps Bali, the Egyptian Red Sea and all the many others – but you may not know that Iceland has top scuba diving destinations of its own. What sets them apart are unique locations with spectacular scenes that will dazzle. It may not have the warmth of many other well-known sites, as the country is located between Norway and Greenland, but it more than makes up for it with its dramatic landscapes, including glaciers, hot springs, waterfalls and lakes.
You’ll be amazed as you drive overland between dive sites in Iceland, with the wonderful volcanic environment serving as a powerful backdrop before you plunge down below the waters and explore all over again. With a relatively small population and unspoilt panoramas, you’re sure to feel like an intrepid adventurer, discovering the country’s magnificent sights for the first time.
