Located on the west coast of Norway, just north of Bergen, Gulen offers some of the best wreck diving in Norway (and Europe!). Within a 45 minute radius from the dive centre you can choose from at least 12 wrecks at a diving depth of 5-80 metres.
The Sognefjord and 1,700 islands create a paradise for scuba divers, and Gulen makes a perfect destination for groups and individuals looking for a variety of dive sites. Wrecks, steep walls, boulders and kelp create habitats for crustaceans, anemones, nudibranchs, scallops, fish, rays and even sharks. READ MORE ››
