A group of Aquanaut Divers are flying out with Iceland Air on 27th June, and back on 2nd July. Whilst there, they will be doing a 3 day dive tour to include 2 ocean dives, 1 dive at the geothermal underwater hot springs in Lake Kleifarvatn and 2 dives in Silfra. We will visit the National Park Þingvellir and the geothermal area Krýsuvík on the Reykjanes peninsula.
The SILFRA Rift (above) is an absolute world class dive site due to two main reasons.
First of all you will be diving in a crack between the American and Eurasian continents.
It’s the place where the continental plates meet and drift apart about 2cm per year. Secondly the visibility that you will experience will rarely be surpassed, if ever. 100m+! The reasons for this clarity are twofold: the water is cold ( 2°C – 4°C all year ) since it’s the melting water from a glacier about 50km away and has traveled through the lava fields for many years before coming out at the north end of Thingvellir lake through underground wells.
The recently discovered geothermal under water hot springs of Kleifarvatn are something very special.
