Thingvellir National Park, home to Silfra Fissure, is located a mere 45 minutes from Reykjavík by car. The park is characterized by beautiful mountains, lakes, and rivers, and is the meeting place of the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates. Silfra was created thousands of years ago when the plates shifted. It is here that divers and snorkelers are offered a glimpse of one of the most rare and breathtaking underwater environments on the planet. The water that they explore is glacial meltwater that filters through the volcanic subterranean layers of earth, making it absolutely clear and clean by the time it reaches the fissure.
Committed to providing visitors with a safe and fun underwater experience, Dive Silfra operates with industry-leading safety standards and equipment, and offers tours designed for any level of expertise. The company is Icelandic owned and run, with PADI® certified professional guides who lead tours with the ethos of enjoying Silfra’s spectacular beauty while respecting its fragile eco-system.
