A volcanic gorge in Iceland's interior

Forces Of Nature - Highlands Dive Expedition

Through the moon and back

Iceland's unlimited diving adventure

This unique expedition takes you to a series of little or completely unexplored dive sites of incredible variety, ranging from bird cliffs to lava fissures and volcanic craters. Besides the unusual – and unusually beautiful – dives, you will twice traverse the interior of Iceland, a landscape like no other on Earth!

The tour begins with a dive in Davíðsgjá underwater lava fissure. This mystical dive site, located on the edge of the Arctic charr’s protected spawning grounds in Lake Thingvallavatn, is the perfect alternative to Silfra for those who already know the ‘Lady of Silver’ personally. For those who don’t, there is the option to dive Silfra instead.

In the interior of Iceland we will dive into some craters and crooks around the Fjallbak nature reserve area. Among the phenomena observed there are weird lava formations, beautiful colours, and floating rocks! We will also dive another volcanic crater filled with pristine sapphire blue water discovered only few summers ago by your guide.

On land this tour will offer you breathtaking sight-seeing opportunities. You won’t know where to look as mountains, glaciers, lakes, lava fields and waterfalls of all varieties compete for your attention. The highlights of what you will see on land include Landmannalaugar, Eldgjá, Langisjór, multiple glaciers, a lush oasis of green flowering vegetation and crystal clear ponds within a deserted lava field. The absolutely unique and stunning landscape of Iceland’s interior may indeed have you wondering at times if you are in fact still on earth!
