Immerse yourself in the clearest water in the world and float between two continents in Iceland! A snorkeling adventure in the famous Silfra fissure is an unforgettable experience.
Silfra is a freshwater rift located in Thingvellir National Park in Iceland. It lies between the American and Eurasian tectonic plates and expands around 2 cm (1 inch) each year.
The clarity of its waters (the visibility in Silfra exceeds 100 meters / 320 feet) makes it a unique attraction among the average traveler as well as professional snorkelers and divers around the world.
The water temperature is 2-4° Celsius (36 – 39°F) all year around.
