DIVING PLACES IN NORTH ICELAND
The Northern Water Circle
Through the 150 m long crack runs crystal clear glacial water that is only around 2-4°C. It’s perfect for photographing since it’s only 3-5 m deep and you can see the bottom and the surface at the same time easily. If it wasn’t so it might look like you weren’t even in the water because the visibility is so great! On a regular day the visibility is around 150 m and the possibility of seeing every shade of blue is quite high.
