Thingvallavatn

Lake Thingvallavatn is the biggest natural lake in Iceland. It’s surface covers 84 km2 and reaches 114 meters in depth. Thingvallavatn is famous for its Arctic trout, with four different forms of the fish being found in Lake Thingvallavatn, which is more that anywhere else in the world.

Lake Thingvallavatn is partly located within the Thingvellir national park. Our Diving location in Thingvallavatn is called Davíðsgjá, a magnificent dive spot in the northeastern part of the lake. The rift is relatively shallow close to the shore but if you swim a little out into the lake the rift becomes absolutely spectacular to dive in. Daviðsgjá fissure is similar to Silfra, but the water is warmer and you can often spot one of the legendary trout subspecies. Daviðsgjá is quite popular among the local divers.

Amazing experience. Small group size. Memorable.
In comparison to the groups from the other company with had over 15 people per group, I was very glad I went with Scuba Iceland. The more personal attention and smaller ratio helped with the experience. Also, from a cost point of view, they don't charge extra 5000 isk like some companies for pick up.
