Fodor's Expert Review Silfra

Þingvellir Body Of Water/Waterfall Fodor's Choice
Most people visit Þingvellir—the location of Iceland’s first parliament and a place of geological significance—but in this same place, another perspective awaits those who don’t mind trading their walking boots and Windbreakers for a dry suit and pair of flippers. Exploring the underwater cracks of Silfra (named as one of the top three freshwater dives on the planet) is like entering another world, where you can snorkel on the surface of crystal clear water or dive to depths up to 30 meters. Once submerged, the silence is striking, but a perfect companion to the vision of muted blues, bejeweled with silver globules of gas mushrooming to the surface from the divers below. Adventures in this underwater wonderland between the continents of Europe and America leave you with images of infinite clarity and but ultimately render you speechless.
