Amazing visibility and underwater landscape

Discover the secret underwater canyon between continents that makes Iceland a most unusual snorkeling destination.

The Silfra Fissures is one of Iceland´s most desirable snorkeling spots. Located in the heart of Thingvellir National Park, this narrow channel of blue water meandering through a giant lava field does not look like much on the surface. But below, supernatural shadeds of blue, perfect visibility and incredible rock formations make up a magical sub-aquatic paradise. Enjoy a great snorkeling experience as you drift peacefully in the comfort of a warmly insulated drysuit accompanied by our highly skilled guides. Silfra, frequently rated as one of the world´s top ten dive sites, is located between the tectonic plates of Europe and America. With up to 100 meter of underwater visiblity, Silfra is truly a mesmerizing site, not to be missed by any snorkeler, experienced or not.
