Diving trip in Iceland
Discover and explore the Arctic waters of Iceland
If you are a diving enthusiast, this is your trip! Iceland offers dives in unique sites, including diving in the crystal clear waters of Silfra, a fissure situated in the heart of Thingvellir National Park, located on top of the separation between Europe and America. It is rated as one of the World’s top ten dives.
In Akureyri, the North capital of Iceland, we will become dry suit divers. A dry suit seals us off from the water and keeps us comfortable during our dives in Iceland. We will dive a shipwreck and explore Arnarnesstrýtur, a cluster of small cones with a lot of marine life around.
If you are an advance diver, you can dive in the first underwater protected area in Iceland: Strýtan, which is the only geothermal cone found in the world you can scuba dive to.
