DIVERS EXPLORE UNDERWATER CANYON WITH 100M VISIBILITY
A diver explores the crystal clear waters of the Silfra canyon in southern Iceland, which is the only place on Earth where you can dive or snorkel between two continental plates. The canyon is a crack between the North American and Eurasian continents and every year these two continental plates drift about 2cm further apart.

The 40-year-old, of Montpellier, France, says: “I had the privilege to dive at the famous Silfra dive site, probably the most impressive freshwater rift in Iceland.
