Diving and Snorkelling in Norway: An Overview

Norway is a sort of European Canada - it's all about the outdoors and doing fun stuff in it, and we think it's great. So if you're the type who might like to ski by boat or take a snowmobile safari through polar bear country, you've come to the right place. Oh, did we mention snorkelling with orcas and humpback whales in a remote fjord? Pretty special.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Snorkelling with orcas and killer whales in a remote fjord in the North. A world-class marine experience.
  • Scandinavians argue fiercely over the best place to spot the ethereal northern lights (Aurora Borealis), but Norway can certainly lay claim to some of the most spectacular locations from which to view them.
  • Explore the fascinating indigenous Sami culture of Norwegian Lapland that is slowly dying out.

Our Guide to Diving and Snorkelling in Norway

The only trip we currently offer in Norway is a trip to snorkel with orcas and humpback whales in a remote fjord in the north.

Our parent company, Original Travel, can offer much more such as trips to the fjords of western Norway and the Arctic island archipelago of Svalbard, both of which major in big, bold scenery. The fjord region is, quite simply, one of the most dramatic destinations anywhere in the world, while Spitsbergen, the main island in Svalbard, is a frozen landscape of glaciers, mountains and fjords full of blue icebergs - think the Scottish Highlands during an Ice Age with added polar bears and you'll get the picture.

Snorkelling with orcas and humpback whales in a remote fjord in Northern Norway was one of the best experiences I have ever had in the water. Truly epic.
