Most dive magazines have published articles about Iceland... many movies, too.
Over the years many articles have been written about diving and snorkelling in Iceland. Particularly Silfra was in the spotlight of the journalists in the early days. Well it´s only 9 years ago that Silfra made a front page for the first time. That was in the british DIVE Magazine and shortly after in TIME magazine. After those articles the ice was broken and many journalists both for print and moving pictures came to visit us in the coming years... not only to write about Silfra but Iceland as a dive destination. Check out our articles and movies!
