Iceland is home to stunning landscapes, glaciers, mountains, lakes and waterfalls, as well as some of the world’s best cold-water diving. Advanced divers can explore the underwater landscapes of this bucket-list destination on a scuba diving in Iceland holiday.

The opportunities for adventure are endless. You can visit the world’s only hydrothermal vent shallow enough to see without a deep-sea submersible, experience hydrogen sulfide bubbles within a geothermal spring, and see a huge variety of marine life in the fjords and ocean. You can even dive between two tectonic plates at Silfra Fissure, the most famous diving spot in the country.

Enjoy the peace of mind of being accompanied by an experienced Divemaster, who will keep a close eye on your small group of like-minded adventurers and help you get the most out of your experience scuba diving in Iceland.

Diver diving between two tectonic plates in Iceland

Explore Silfra Fissure

Situated within Þingvellir (or Thingvellir) National Park, Silfra Fissure is a 45-minute drive northeast of Reykjavik. It’s the only place in the world where you can dive between two tectonic plates — the North American and Eurasian plates — as they drift apart. Dives boast 100 m /330 foot visibility year-round because Silfra forms the northern edge of Lake Thingvallavatn, filled with crystalline water supplied by the Langjokull glacier located 50 km / 31 miles to the north.
