Diving to the Center of the Earth

No reviews, be the first!

Ever wanted to slip between the plates of the earth's surface and see what goes on down there under the crusty rock we walk on every day? Well, here’s your chance.

In the middle of Iceland, in Thingvellir National Park – incidentally one of the most beautiful places on earth – the Eurasian and American continents meet and, in fact, drift apart at a rate of about 2cm a year. This leaves a rift in the earth’s surface, a crack that you can peer down into or, if you like adventure, dive into the waters of the Silfra Rift.
