A dive in the underwater forest

undewater roadFLOODED VALLEY: On a beautiful spring morning in 1908, a large rockslide came crashing down from the 1218m high mountain Keipen, blocking the river, leaving the farms and the road submerged. Two million cubic meters of rock lay 40 meters high in the valley and a new norwegian lake was born: Lygnstøylvatnet. Today, the lake located in Ørsta in North-west Norway, fascinates divers with its clear blue water, trippy green fields, remains of the old barns and the mystical underwater forest.
