In a stunning video that has surfaced on the internet, a diver is swimming between Europe and North American continental plates. This place, called Silfra Fissure, is located at Thingvellir National Park in Iceland and is a result of a drift between the two plates which increases by 2cm each year.
The water is crystal clear with 100 meters visibility and usually remains between 2’C- 4’C. Silfra is one of the most pristine water bodies in the world.
The video uploaded by Facebook user Hashem Al- Ghaili on December 13 has gone viral and has been shared over 500,000 times.
