Silfra is one of the top freedive sites in the world and situated in Thingvellir (A UNESCO world heritage site). It is only about 50 km from Reykjavik. Silfra is a freswater volcanic fissure about 60 meters deep with 100+ vizibility. 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 Silfra accompanied by a certified freedive professionals and we can assure you that freediving with us will be a memorable experience. Instead of just floating heavily on the surface as when snorkeling in drysuits you will be able to freedive into the fissure. No freediving experience or license is needed. We freedive with consideration to our customers ability
