Diving in Fjords
these are mainly shore dives, but completely different than the dives you are accustomed to. The roots for this unmatched adventure are the Arctic climate, crystal clear waters of the Norwegian Sea and the virgin beauty of this spectacular region. Submerged in the underwater world you have the opportunity to discover and interact with many endemic fish species and other marine animals.
current dives are a unique experience for the skilled and disciplined scuba diver. The strongest currents pass through narrow straits during high and low tides which „empty” and then “refill” the fjords with water. Here you can admire kelp forests which grow to enormous sizes thanks to the constant circulation of water and oxygen. This breathtaking underwater life is a thrill for all divers.
The Lofoten are famous for their numerous sunken wrecks which are the most interesting in all of Norway. We organize trips to many of them for example: MS Hadsel, Gudrun. Both wrecks lie at a depth of 24- 46m. The cold arctic water has maintained them in almost mint condition.
Diving at rock walls
post-glacial mountain walls which reach unfathomable depths can be found not only in the open sea, but also within the fjords. They showcase mysterious canyons, nooks and crannies that attack your imagination. Diving such walls is always a fascinating and memorable experience.
