Silfra is one of the top underwater vizebility 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 snorkeling in it feels like flying. Snorkeling in 7mm wetsuit provides all the protection needed from the cold.
