Thanks to glacial runoff and a long filtration journey through Iceland’s volcanic underground, the water pouring into Lake Thingvellir is some of the cleanest water in the world. Nowhere is that more apparent that in the Silfra Rift, the tectonic boundary between the Eurasian and North America plates. Here, divers can experience some of the finest visibility in the world as they dive in an otherworldly underwater landscape.

In this story from Vimeo user @Humanity, we follow David, who has been diving Silfra for years.
