2. discover fantastic natural wonders in the Silfra Fissure, Iceland

Under the Icelandic water surface, about 60 kilometers away from Reykjavík , in the Silfra Fissure, unique experiences await to be discovered while snorkelling. The Silfra Fissure was formed when an underground spring burst open and filled with water. The water always has a temperature of 2°C - 4°C and is even drinkable and very refreshing. The gentle current that flows in the Silfra Fissure ensures a clear view of the paradisiacal colours at all times. The breathtaking scenery, where you can reach a maximum depth of 18 metres, is worth a visit at any time of the year.
