The Silfra rift is the amazing freshwater fissure in the National Park Thingvellir.
It's famous for it's fantastic visibility and the fact that scuba divers and snorkelers can snorkel & dive between two continents.
The water in Silfra is so clear due to the filtering process through the lava fields the water seeps through for decades. The diving comunity talks about the clearest water on planet earth. Silfra developed from earthquakes that happen every 10-12 years due to the tectonioc tention of the American and Eurasian plates.
Divers and Snorkelers are virtually swimming in between two continents.
