- Dive into the heart of Iceland’s geothermal activity
- Float through Lake Kleifarvatn’s newly discovered underwater bubbling hot springs
- Visit the boiling mud pots and colorful sulfur deposits of an area rife with geothermal activity
- The Silfra fissure in the exact location where the continental plates divide; at one point in the dive, you can touch the walls of each continent

The first day of diving takes you into the depths of the Icelandic ocean. Our favorite ocean dive site in the Reykjavík area is Garður, located on the Reykjanes peninsula. Here divers will see the marine life of the North Atlantic, with the possibility of visits from wolf fish, scorpion fish, flat fish, lump suckers and more. In addition to the fish, divers will spot crustaceans such as crabs, scallops, northern shrimp, cockles and mussels. The ocean is brimming with myriad species of marine algae, which not only provide essential nutrition for the other life in the sea but are also colourful and diverse in design.
Iceland’s geothermal activity is one of the defining characteristics of this country, both in terms of its landscape and the culture of its inhabitants. On the second day of diving you enter into the heart of Iceland’s geothermal activity, a dive site located in Lake Kleifarvatn amidst a sprawling, stunning volcanic terrain. Lake Kleifarvatn contains newly discovered underwater hot springs and we will dive straight into these bubbling springs. After the dive, we will visit the boiling mud pots and colourful sulphur deposits of a nearby area rife with geothermal activity.
On the third and final day of diving, we will dive Iceland’s ultimate dive site, Silfra. Silfra is located in Thingvellir National Park, an area of immense interest to geologists and cultural historians alike. The rift valley of Thingvellir was created by the slow separation of the Eurasian and North American continental plates, and it was here that the original settlers of Iceland held their annual legislative assembly. The Silfra fissure in in the exact location where the continental plates divide; at one point in the dive, you can touch the walls of each continent. As the water that fills Silfra is glacial water that has been filtered through basaltic lava rock for a distance of 50 km, Silfra’s underwater visibility is unparalleled by any other dive site on the planet.
On the day of diving in Silfra you can add the optional Silfra Tectonic Specialty Awareness Course, which gives you a deeper understanding of plate tectonics in Iceland and Silfra in particular.
