Silfra Diving

Silfra is a rift formed in the divergent tectonic boundary between the North American and Eurasian plates and is located in Iceland. It’s the only place in the world where you can dive between two tectonic plates.

The cold clear water of Silfra does not support much marine life. The only fish found here is the dwarf char, however, they are hard to spot.
