Doing a night dive in Silfra is totally different than doing normal daytime dives. First of all,At winter you see only what the light shows you and in summer it´s much darker than normal. Also, there is usually much fish in Silfra at night time. By freediving there is good hope of grabbing one with your bare hand.
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.

Instead of just floating heavily on the surface as when snorkeling you will be able to freedive into the fissure. No freediving experience or license is needed.
