Highlights

Silfra is about 60-63 meter where it is deepest. Silfra is a freshwater fissure and you can almost see the end to end as the water is so clear. No diving experience is needed as you will snorkel at the surface of the canyon. We provide all the gear that you need and offer snorkeling in wetsuit and drysuit all dependant on your interest.
Silfra is a rift formed in the
 divergent tectonic boundary between the North American and Eurasian plates and is located in the ÞingvallavatnLake in the Þingvellir National Park in Iceland.The site lies in the Þingvellir valley and within the Þingvellir National Park. The valley and Silfra itself were formed by the divergent tectonic drift of the Eurasian and North American plates. The plates drift about 2 cm (0.79 in) farther apart every year, building up tension between the plates and the earth mass above. 
Silfra lies at the rim of the Þingvallavatn Lake and is one of the largest and deepest of these fissures.

A lava tube is a natural conduit formed by flowing lava which moves beneath the hardened surface of a lava flow. Tubes can be draining lava from a volcano during an eruption, or can be extinct, meaning the lava flow has ceased and the rock has cooled and left a long cave.
