On this 6 day expedition to the North East of Iceland our aim is to observe large schools of cod in their spawning activities.
Erlendur Bogason who is also the discoverer of Strıtan, the geothermal chimneys, will conduct this tour together with us.
He is the first and only diver that has ever filmed spawning cod in their natural environment.
Many of these huge schools of cod gather in the fjord Şistilfjörğur for their spawning.
Dives are usually not deeper than 25 meters and most of the fish is seen between 8 and 12 meters depth.
Apart from the cod we will see a lot of the rich marine life of the North Atlantic, such as wolffish, lump suckers, starry rays, redfish, all sorts of flatfish, many different types of nudibranchs and crustaceans, etc.
As for established highlights we will dive Silfra, Strıtan and the Nésgja, another fresh water fissure in the North of Iceland as well as the geothermal heated river Litla á.
