As a scuba diver, if you haven’t discovered Silfra yet, you’re missing out big time; it's up there among the top 10 dive sites on Earth, and it's right here in Iceland. At Silfra, you'll find a dramatic scene that looks like it's been pulled straight from a Hollywood movie set – a fissure between two continental plates, that contains some of the clearest water on the planet, with visibility typically more than 100 metres, all year round, come rain, snow or shine.
When you visit Silfra, it’s easy to see why it’s one of the world’s best dive sites - the crystal clear water means you can easily see the stunning underwater rock formations below; there are four otherworldly areas to explore (Silfra Lagoon, Silfra Hall, Silfra Big Crack and Silfra Cathedral); there is a gentle current and no boats, ensuring your experience is magical; and the water is so clean you can drink it!
Located in the Þingvellir National Park in south-western Iceland, Silfra can be found far away from the hustle and bustle of Reykjavik. And as it is so far north, you can make the most of your trip by choosing to swim under the midnight sun or the winter Northern Lights - an experience you're unlikely to find anywhere else.
