Gulen - In a class of its own

Cold water diving will never be the same after you visit Gulen. This is where history meets present day, the deep ocean meets the kelp forest and where the gargantuan meets the miniscule.

Whatever you want to see under water, chances are good that you will find it at Gulen Dive Resort just north of Bergen on the Norwegian west coast.

The area at the mouth of the Sognefjord, the world’s longest fjord cutting some 220 kilometres into the Norwegian west coast, is as rich in marine splendour as it is beautiful above the surface.

When your readers see these colourful images they'll want to call their travel agent first thing in the morning!

The house reef alone boasts a plethora of species, and is inhabited by many different fish, mussels, anemones, sea squirts, squid, crustaceans and soft coral.

Visiting divers may also see sharks, rays, deep-sea jellyfish, an abundance of colorful nudibranchs, octopus and the magnificent kelp forest.

Gulen Dive Resort on the Norwegian west coast offers fantastic diving, both in terms of WWII wrecks and marine life. More than 50 species of nudibranchs been found on the house reef alone.

The area was of great strategic importance during World War II, and consequently it is littered with spectacular wrecks of freighters and warships.

In terms of rusty WWII action few places in the world can compete, and spending a week at Gulen leaves you with the chance of being properly “wrecked”.

Gulen Dive Resort regularly dive up to 20 different wrecks, depending on conditions. Some of them are rated not only among the best Norway has to offer - they are simply world class.
