Dive in a volcanic fissure filled with icy glacial water where you are literally swimming between continents.
Iceland may not be the first place that comes to find when considering a snorkeling or diving destination, however Silfra in Thingvellir National Park (UNESCO) is rated by professional divers and snorkelers as one of the best freshwater sites in the world. Silfra is a deep, dramatic fissure at the bottom of Lake Thingvallavatn that lies between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates where divers are literally swimming between continents.
The crystal-clear, pale blue water comes from a melting glacier 48 kilometers (30 mi) away. The clarity of this water is so remarkable that divers experience a heady flying sensation as they plunge through the glacial waters. This exotic and serene journey is made even more surreal by the bizarre submerged lava formations and underwater landscapes.
