A  full concept of  Icelandic exploration that will take your breath away.

Ultimate Fire and Ice

Explore the mighty Mid Atlantic Ridge between fire and ice. Dive in Iceland, the number one place for exploration and underwater photography. Take pictures of ancient lava pushed up by the seafloor and see what the earth looked like 10,000 years ago. Drysuit dive into a brand new cold-water environment and discover new species of extreme arctic marine life. Experience the beauty of melting glacial water-filled fissures, of +120m underwater visibility. With pristine natural conditions and some of the clearest water on the planet, it’s no wonder that Iceland has one of the top 10 dive sites in the world.

Massive tectonic forces that shaped Iceland create ruptures in the Earth’s crust — filled with clear glacial water, they provide spectacular places to dive
