Diving at Thingfellir, Iceland

There are places in Iceland where you can put one hand on Europe and one on America. The mid-Atlantic rift, the dividing line of the two continents as they move apart, passes through the island. It is possible to scuba dive in the rift in spectacularly clear, though cold water.

James Henderson of A Life of Adventure travelled to Thingvellir to dive in the rift for the Financial Times' magazine How to Spent it. Read his story below.
