Diving Silfra under the Midnight Sun

A Silfra Dive in bright night

Prepare to be amazed

The Icelandic summer is a fantastic and beautiful time. For visitors new to the northern bright summer nights, the midnight sun is an amazing experience.

To combine this with scuba diving in the clearest water on this planet right between the North American and the Eurasian continents is extraordinary.

In summer between May 15th and August 15th we offer our Diving Silfra Tour with a departure at 4pm from Reykjavik.

The tour is the same as the Diving Silfra Day Tour, with the difference that we will dive in the evening when we have the National Park Thingvellir almost to ourselves.

The evening atmosphere in Thingvellir is quiet and mysterious and the special evening light will provide an unforgettable scene for your dive.

The late departure time also makes it possible for the participants to do other activities during the day and use the evening as well.

This diving tour can be combined with snorkelers as well as non-diving passengers.
