Norway is a country in Northern Europe that occupies the western portion of the Scandinavian Peninsula.
During three summer months, the sun never sets. In northern Norway, during the winter months, you have the opportunity to see the Northern Lights, which is nature's spectacular "light show".
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. Apart from diving, Norway offers many outdoor other activities including hiking, climbing and canoeing as well as year - round winter sports.
There are hundreds of wrecks along the Norwegian coastline, but probably one of the best wrecks is the 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. This German steam ship which is 126 metres long struck a rocky outcrop on the 6 January 1940 in the Sognefjord. Also, at The Lofoten Isles (Vestfjorden) diving with Killer Whales can be an experience not to forget, as they feed on the shoals of Herrings.
The wrecks at Narvik include many WW2 warships and large freighters. More than 30 ships were sunk in the harbour during the two battles of 1940. In addition to this, 6 German, 1 Polish, and 3 British destroyers lie in the nearby fjords. A lot of these ships can be dived.
The German battleship Tirpitz was the less-famous sister ship to the Bismarck and the site of battleship is a popular dive, but is in a rather remote location, but purely because of it's history is a worthy dive.
