Best Time to Dive in Iceland

You can dive Iceland's most popular and famous dive site, Silfra Fissure, all year round, however with warmer outside temperatures between May and October, drying off after diving in your dry suit might be a bit more comfortable at this time of year than in the colder winter months. If the more challenging and colder conditions don't bother you, the winter months will be less crowded with divers and snorkellers, and the experience will be just as incredible. See below for our month-by-month guide on the best time to dive in Iceland.
