…Diving in the Silfra River is like walking in space?


If you ever find yourself traveling to Iceland, make sure to plan some dive time in the Silfra River, a crack between the continental plates that is located in the middle of the Thingvellir National Park. What makes this dive so unique is the fact that the water comes from melted glaciers and has been filtered through the lava bed for years, resulting in water that is so cold (2-4°C, or just above freezing) that nothing can grow. This lack of life means that you can see for over 100 meters, and (besides the bubbles) you’ll feel like you’re floating in space. Plus, it’s been voted one of the ten best dives in the world, which means that after your visit, you’ll only have nine more to go.
