We stayed for two days as part of a company diving trip (Scuba Iceland) and had a great time. The location is perfect, right on the edge of the Fjord, and it was nice to dive off a RIB again. The hydrothermal vents are like nothing else I've ever dived, amazing to watch the shimmer as the hot water gushes... More

We drove in our 4x4 from Reykjavik to Akureyri via the "dust-road" to this dive centre to dive the chimneys. The people at the centre were very helpful, kind, informative and funny. We went out on the rib did 2 great dives. After diving we went Humpback Whale watching and had the opportunity to snorkel with them. Thank you for... More

It was a pleasure to dive with Erlandur. We were picked up in the harbor (where we arrived by cruise ship) and I went diving while my wife went whale watching. Both of us saw humpback whales from very near and I had 2 great diving. One where we saw almost tame cods and wolffish and a second one on... More

Diving on Iceland is not cheap, this was value for money. I had 2 great dives. The white smokers are incredible, the Wolf fishes were beautiful and not shy. Erlandur en Seavor gave perfect information an guided the dive in a relaxed and pleasant way. At my Youtube channel (basbrand) you can see a 2 minutes video clip. (Iceland trip... More

The three person team at the Strytan Divecenter are an amazing bunch! Erlendur really knows his way around Eyjafjordur and the thermal vents. Importantly, he gives a great briefing on the do's and don't's of thermal diving. Saevor is really knowledgeable and Saebjort is an amazing cook. They're all really friendly and happy to answer any questions and help you... More

Just done 2 dives on the vents. I was amazed and recon this should be counted in the top 10 of dives in the world. Really well looked after.

I contacted them with pretty short notice and they set me up with a dry suit orientation dive and a trip to the geothermal vent. Saevor was a great instructor, and Erlander was great too. hanging out in the hot tub post-dive was awesome. all in all, a wonderful day.

I dove the thermal vent known as Arnarnesstrytur with Ellendur and his team. It was an absolute highlight of our trip to Iceland. The dive was a once in a life time experience. Instead of trying fill in all of the details of what you will experience diving a vent, I will leave it up to your own research in... More

This will be a decent-sized review. If you want a quick answer if you should go, go without a doubt. You won’t regret it. You’ll treasure it forever. Matter of fact, after six reviews, I stopped reading it for if I should go and started reading the reviews because of anticipation. It’s not a complete trip to Iceland until you’ve... More
