Spectacular diving experience! - Silfra is sublime! Read a lot about it in dive mags. I had one of the best cold water dives of my life! I went with a new company called Magmadive. After the dives, I had some hot soup made at the dive site, it was like a restaurant or something. If you are thinking about diving at Silfra, check out www.magmadive.is
