Diving and snorkeling at Silfra, Iceland, on the fault line where the Eurasian and North American tectonic plates meet. The water is some of the clearest on this planet - it comes from the Lángjökull glacier, and takes between 30 and 100 years to filter through lava rock into the lake at Thingvellir National Park, leaving it crystal clear.
