Scuba diving in Iceland
Dive in crystal clear water
There is a place in Iceland of great historical significance, where people have gathered since the settlement of Iceland to settle their differences and celebrate their mutual respect for one another. It is a meeting place of more than one kind. At Þingvellir (Thingvellir) in South Iceland there lies a lake, one side lies on the European tectonic plate and the other on the North American plate, its waters are a marvel to behold. Where else in the world can you dive down into the earths depths, floating between two continents as they slowly drift apart. And it is only one of many amazing places to go diving in Iceland. Try something new on your holiday in Iceland, test your limits and enjoy all this country has to offer, on land and off.
There is a unique experience waiting for you and all you have to do is to literally take the leap (off a boat). Enter any one of the lakes or off shore scuba dive sites around Iceland to see for yourself how the crystal clear Icelandic waters make for some of the best diving sites in the world.
The Silfra Ravine, Kleifarvatn Lake, Strytan and the charming village of Seydisfjordur are amazing diving spots.
