Diving in Norway

Looking for more adventure?  

During the summer months, our itinerary takes us to the stunning fjords of Norway. 

The next trip dates are not yet confirmed …. Please watch this space or our facebook groups (Friends of mv Valkyrie or Friends of mv Valhalla) for future trip dates.

Based in Bergen for changovers, our Norway trips travel North through the myriad of islands and narrow fjords, to Sonnefjord and beyond to Floro, with diving on the world class, largely intact, Norwegian wrecks lying on the slopes.

Frankenwald, Ferndale and Parrat, Ilse Fritzen, Oldenburg, Tyrifjord, Welheim, Spring, Haakon.  All names to conjure with and with the long daylight hours of the North and limited tidal range, diving opportunities abound.

An intact stemmship lying in 44 meters the Frankenwald is one of our guests top dives in Norway. 

 

Drysuit experiance is a must and Smb deployment should be on your skills list for diving in the Fjords.

 

While some of the wrecks extend down past 45 meters (down to 80 in some cases). A group of divers with experiance to 45/50 meters can easliy get a fantastic week in Norway.

 

Nitrox and Trimix are available on our expeditions.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our trips start and end in the fantastic city of Bergen.

Bergen has good transport links with the Flesland international airport connecting with many UK Airports with short 70 minute flights.

 

Stopping at many tiny ports and islands our Norwegian itinerary is more than just a diving trip – its a holiday with a difference

  • MV VALHALLA HAS ARRIVED!

    The Valhalla was built for the Royal Navy in 1972 as RNAS Loyal Factor but was quickly converted into a patrol boat and commissioned as HMS Vigilant to serve in Northern Ireland where she remained until the 1990s when she was handed back to the RNAS in Gosport to serve as Sultan Venturer – the training ship for HMS Sultan – the RN school of engineering.   Bought in 2012 she has been converted into a “go anywhere” expedition liveaboard diving vessel with awesome seakeeping abilities and a luxurious interior.
