Silfra Rift, Tingvellir National Park, Iceland, Europe

Silfra Rift

Together like puzzle pieces moving tectonic plates in the earth's crust (also known as continental drift), is more obvious than in other places in southwest Iceland Thingvellir National Park.

In the the park expanding Almannagjá Canyon, you can take a stroll in the seams of the Eurasian Plate and the North American plate, as they slowly away, or you can dive into Lake Thingvellir in Silfra rift between the mainland cracks.

Nearly a century, glaciers melted, filtered lava lake, but once the water from entering, it is so clear visibility nearly 1,000 feet underwater.
