Norway - diving above the arctic circle

Wreck in NorwayCOLD BEAUTY: Despite being located dangerously close to the North Pole, diving in Norway is actually not too bad. The 57 000 kilometer long coast line is blessed with the mild currents of the Golf stream. The diving offers clear blue water, lush kelp forests and a rich marine life. Well preserved German ship wrecks from the war are also scattered along the coast. Even some species of sharks are observed regularly in some areas. A dry suit is highly recommended. Although sea temperatures normally reach 20 degrees in the summer - it usually drops to 7-8 at depth.
