Read about Hitra in Sportsdykkeren

Danish divers can read more about diving at Hitra on the Norwegian west coast in the December 2012 issue of Sportsdykkeren magazine, where my story from this top destination is the main feature.



Posted on Dec 4, 2012

Hitra is located off the coast of western Norway, between Trondheim and Kristiansund, and is known as one of the most diverse diving areas in Norway.

Visitors with a tank on their back can look forward to magnificent kelp forests, ripping current dives, shools of fish and an astonishing invertebrate life.

The readers of Sportsdykkeren magazine get the full story on Hitra in the December 2012 issue, which also features one of my images on the cover.

The mighty monkfisk, which can grow to almost two meters in length, is a common sight on the sandy flats around Hitra. They have amazing eyes and are easy to photograph.

In addition to grat natural beauty and interestin marine biology, Hitra also offers a couple of wreck dives like Kletten and Sandsvalen, and even a cave dive.

A multitude of divespots are found all around the island, and you can dive almost anywhere. The sandy flats found in many areas are rich in scallops, and if you bring a net catching some dinner is a real no-brainer.

Flatfish and monkfish also thrive on the sand, while more rocky areas are inhabited by squat lobsters, spider crabs, edible crabs and lobster.

Hitra has for a long time been a well-known Eldorado among Norwegian divers, and I'm happy that Danish divers get to know more about the opportunities.

One of the best drift dives can be done in Vettastraumen, where bright orange soft coral form an almost continous carpet along the walls and on the bottom.

Large fish congregate to feed in the current, while anemones and other filter feeders are abundant. Flying over the brightly colored seascape is a spectacular experience! The Scubapixel database contains 40+ images from Hitra, both above and below the surface.
