Silfra and Davíðsgjá
This tour offers divers the opportunity to dive both the world-famous Silfra fissure and the lesser known but equally beautiful Davíðsgjá fissure, a favorite among local divers. Like Silfra, the Davíðsgjá fissure was created by the movement of tectonic plates along the Mid-Atlantic Ridge. The underwater visibility of both sites is astonishing and both sites are uniquely Icelandic. Davíðsgjá has been described by some divers as a darker and more mysterious version of Silfra.
After diving Davíðsgjá on Day 1, we will head out on a hunt for the beautiful northern lights. We will dive Silfra on Day 2, followed by a sightseeing tour of the Golden Circle, which includes Gullfoss waterfall and the aptly named active geyser, Geysir.
These two days of diving are perfect for a short diving holiday in Iceland or as an addition to your longer visit to the country. Divers all over the world agree that these sites are unforgettable!
