Sailing home from Greenland in 2010 we stopped in Reykjavik for some rest and recovery. This included a dive at Þingvellir, where the Silfra rift is located. The rift is a part of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge, that marks the boundaries between the Eurasian and North-American tectonic plate. The water is fresh water holding three degrees celsius, and originates from an upwelling of glaciar melting water somewhere deep down in the ground.
