The landscape is stunning, only 30 minutes out of Reykjavik and one can experience complete silence in the most beautiful surroundings. In order to get to the dive site we will have to take our 4x4 dive bus, since only rugged tire tracks lead to the site in the middle of nowhere.
Close to the beach we park the dive bus and walk down to the water to give you a briefing on this geologically unique dive site. If the wind direction is right, we can already smell our hot springs.
We put on our gear and walk to the entry point. When walking into the water to put on fins and mask one can already see the white and yellow sulfur deposits on the lake floor and the gas bubbles come up in between.
In the center area of the hot springs is a hole in the lake floor where a lot of water and gases come up. When diving into this hole, one has the feeling of diving into an earthquake because the air bubbles coming out of the ground create pressure that lets the rocks vibrate. Divers can feel these vibrations deep into their bones. A very special experience!
After the dive we will pack our gear together and drive down the tire tracks to Krysuvík, a geothermal hot spring area nearby. In Krysuvík we will marvel at the mud pots and hot springs and the colorful sulfur deposits before we make our way back to Reykjavik.
If you like you can bring your swimming clothes with you and we can drop you off at one of Reykjavik's wonderful geothermal pools where you can hang out in the hot tubs to end the day in a geothermal way.
