The Silfra fissure is one of Iceland’s best kept secrets. Silfra, which is situated in the heart of Žingvellir, the site of the world’s oldest parliament and a UNESCO Heritage site since 2004, is an otherworldly scene. The crystal clear waters of the deep fissure gives you a feeling of being weightless as you float downstream with the lazy current. Frequently rated as one of the worlds top ten dive sites, the Silfra offers up to 100 meters of underwater visibility and is located on top of the separation between Europe and America! After an hour of snorkeling we climb out and head back to the car. Snorkeling Silfra is a relaxing but exotic trip in an environment most will only encounter in their dreams.
