All about the trip
Silfra is situated in Thingvellir National Park, where the earth drifts apart around 2 centimeters every year as the North American and Eurasian tectonic plates move in opposite directions – creating such natural wonders as is Silfra. However, one of the clearest water in the world comes with a price, as the temperature lingers around 2-4 degrees Celsius all year round (35 degrees Fahrenheit). The wetsuit covers your whole body, but it won’t protect you entirely from the just-above-freezing glacial water. Still, our wetsuit does an amazing job of keeping you relatively warm.
Unlike the drysuit, which allows you to float on the surface, the wetsuit enables you to dive a little under the surface to explore the beauty of Silfra a bit closer. We only recommend the wetsuit for our more adventurous participants because of the cold, but it will be absolutely worth it for those who are up for the challenge!Watch on Youtube
