A World Class Wreck Dive

On January 6, 1940, the German freighter Frankenwald was caught in a treacherous current on the Norwegian west coast. With a deafening noise, German steel met Norwegian rock, and ship and cargo were lost.

All that is left of Frankenwald is a world class wreck dive. The migthy ship stands upright in 40 meters of water at the mouth of the Sognefjord on the Norwegian west coast.

Now wreck divers everywhere can read the story about Frankenwald and the events that led to her demise on a 12-page spread in the July 2014 edition of Wreck Diving Magazine.

Even after 70+ years on the bottom of the ocean, Frankenwald is remarkably intact. The bow of the 122 meter long freighter is a magnificent sight.

Wreck Diving Magazine was voted "Publication of the Year" at the EuroTek convention in 2008, and features an array of well-known writers and photographers.

I'm very proud to be published in Wreck Diving Magazine for the third time - and be able to share the most comprehensive story ever written about Frankenwald with their readers.

If you liked the bow, you're gonna love the stern! A very popular subject for underwater photographers, the towering stern is easily accessible at just 24 meters depth.

If you want to travel to Norway to dive this spectacular wreck please get in touch with Gulen Dive Resort. They run regular trips to Frankenwald and other great wrecks in the area.
