Overview

Ideal for experienced divers, this 6-hour diving trip in Thingveiller National Park allows you to discover the incredible Silfra fissure — the continental plates that separate North America and Eurasia. During two dives, you’ll marvel at ancient lava formations and swim into the void between two tectonic plates. This small-group tour is limited to four people, and includes all diving gear and round-trip transport from Reykjavik. An accredited diving qualification is required.

What to Expect

Your tour begins with pickup from downtown Reykjavik. Here, you’ll greet your guide and small group and travel to your diving point. After a safety briefing, you’ll don your equipment and embark on your first dive of the day.  

After plunging into the icy water, you’ll discover ancient lava formations and the Silfra fissure — the tectonic boundary that separates North America from Eurasia. The gentle current and high visibility of the water makes exploration effortless and rewarding.

Experience two dives of approximately 30 minutes before returning to the surface to dry off and discuss your exhilarating experience. Relax during the journey back to your original departure point.

Wow, amazing!!!

This was such a great experience, seeing the fissure from that perspective was just incredible. Our tour guide, Steve, was very helpful, funny, and organized. Everything with him was done quick and he hustled us so we could go first which was definitely worth it....More
