Diving Norway: Fjords, Granite, and Shipwrecks
While not considered a normal diving destination, Norway is a cold-water location that offers spectacular scenery above and below water. Its glacially carved fjords form a maze of channels that penetrate deep into the majestic granite landscape. Nestled within these fjords are many Norwegian and German shipwrecks from World War II to modern times, covered in anemones and featuring the history of the region. Above water are quaint towns and historic cities that pay homage to Norway’s maritime heritage from the Vikings to modern Arctic and Antarctic exploration.
