What is Silfra

Silfra is Iceland's most popular snorkeling site, where you can find a fissure filled with fresh glacial water between two tectonic plates - North American and Eurasian.

Since Iceland stands between the constantly moving tectonic plates, the fissure is becoming wider and wider each year.

Why is the water so clear

Silfra fissure is filled with fresh glacial water, which is then filtered under earth through volcanic stones. This is the reason why Silfra has one of the cleanest waters in the world.

It is believed that the water keeps your skin healthier.

Can you see the Center of the Earth

Although tectonic plates are drifting apart and the visibility under water is over 100 meters, we unfortunately cannot see the center of the earth.
