Scuba diver hangs out between Europe and North America

For many an intrepid traveler, the thought of being able to move seamlessly between North America and Europe seems like a dream.

Who wouldn’t want to be able to spend a morning in Paris only to hop in a car and spend the night in New Orleans?

And while that notion seems far-fetched for most, as evidenced by a new video showing scuba divers in the Silfra fissure, for some people the two continents are just an arm’s length away.

The video, which was uploaded to Facebook on Dec. 12, has already been viewed over 25 million times.

It shows a group of people scuba diving in the crystal clear waters of the Silfra fissure in Thingvellir National Park in Iceland.

The fissure serves as a landmark of where the continental shelves of North American and Eurasia meet, with the two continents at times being close enough that a diver could be touching North America and Europe with his or her two hands simultaneously while inside the fissure, as shown in the video.

The waters of the lake vary between 25 to 35 degrees Fahrenheit year round and are filtered through porous volcanic rock. This contributes to the clarity of the water and removes all of its impurities, making it clean enough for divers to drink at any point during their dive.

As the video has continued to gain viral exposure, people have taken to social media to express their desires to dive in the fissure:

While the dive is appealing to many, depending on how long your arms are, you may want to hurry if you want to visit it: Each year the continents grow about two centimeters further apart.
