Detailed description

This world class dive tour includes two dives in Silfra ravine, one of Iceland’s best-kept secrets. It is situated in the heart of Þingvellir National Park, the founding place of the world’s oldest parliament and a UNESCO world heritage site. Silfra is an otherworldly scene located in the lava field directly on top of the continental rift valley between America and Europe.

Experience the weightless gliding across Iceland’s very own clear glacier waters. The slow current gives one a perfect pace to explore this beautiful area. The fresh water visibility is an unmatched specimen, so wide and long that sometimes it is only limited by the density of the water itself. Depth varies from 10 to 40 meters. Our dive depth is limited to 18 meters by park regulations.

This is without question one of the best dive tours the world has to offer. If you are a keen diver, make sure not to miss it!

Please note: In the winter time if the temperature falls below -0°C there is a possibility that the dive master will change the tour into just one dive due to safety reasons.

Remember to bring:
Your PADI certificate (or equivalent)
Warm undergarments (fleece/wool), warm woolen socks and a change of clothing.
The change of clothing is a precaution since no dry suit can be 100% guaranteed to be dry unless it is made especially for you.

Wearing Glasses?
Since you are wearing snorkeling / dive mask to see underwater, there can be nothing in the way of the seal to keep them from filling up with water. That is, you can not wear glasses underneath the mask. You will have to go without them, wear contact lenses or bring your own goggles with prescription.

Driving direction

If you plan to drive and meet us on location, the meeting point is at the parking lot outside the Information Centre by the Thingvellir National Park campsite. Note: When driving from Reykjavík on road 36 you will first see a Visitor Centre and viewpoint for Þingvellir on your right-hand side. This is NOT the meeting point, keep going and drive further for 5-10 min on road 36 and you will see the Information Centre on your left hand. – See map for more details.

Please note that the national park charges a small fee for parking.

If you have your own transport and want to meet us on location, then the meeting time is 11:00 for the morning departure and 13:00 for the afternoon departure, at the Þingvellir service center/campsite. See map for details.
