Snorkeling in the Silfra Fissure
I surprised Michael and booked a little excursion for us to snorkel between two tectonic plates. Yep. I am an awesome girlfriend.
Iceland is the only place in the entire world you can dive between two tectonic plates because the fault line that runs under the country (and why it exists) is divergent, meaning the North American Plate and European Plate are moving away from one another. The crack, called the Silfra Fissure, runs through a freezing cold lake (about 35 degrees cold to be precise) and thus you are able to swim in it.
I didn't take a lot of pictures in the water because I just took a crap ton of videos instead. To see some footage of our trip head to my Vimeo page (link on the top right of my blog).
