Diving in Norway

Explore diving in Norway

The long coastline with its thousands of islands, deep fjords, wrecks and abundant marine life offer some of the best cold water diving in the world.

Drift diving in Norway is a rip. There isn’t much you can do to compete with the sheer exhilaration of “flying” over the sea floor borne only by the current. Saltstraumen, about 10 kilometres/six miles from the town of Bodø, Norway, boasts some of the world's strongest tidal currents. The diving is off the charts.

There are hundreds of wrecks along the Norwegian coastline, but one of the best is the German steam ship Frankenwald which stands upright on a sandy bottom. The deck is located at a depth of 27 metres but the rear mast is the shallowest point at only 7 metres. The wrecks at Narvik include many WW2 warships and large freighters.
