Davíðsgjá is one of the best freedive sites in Iceland and situated in Thingvellir (A UNESCO world heritage site). It is only about 50 km from Reykjavik. Davíðsgjá is a freswater volcanic fissure wich is connected to the big lake at Thingvellir with same visibility as Silfra. The water is so clear that freediving in it feels like flying.  Freediving in 7mm freedive suit provides all the protection needed from the cold.

Freedive Iceland is the only Icelandic company offering freediving tours in Iceland accompanied by a certified freedive professionals and we can assure you that freediving with us will be a memorable experience. Instead of just floating on the surface as when snorkeling you will be able to freedive into the fissure. No freediving experience or license is needed. We freedive with consideration to our customers ability

We like to have fun in the water, and for that you also need to have fun.  So we have the same goal.
