    Anyone got any links to Norway footage?

    I'm interested in looking at footage of diving in Norway. I know it's known for it's deep wrecks but I'd like to look at scenic stuff and above water stuff, particularly from a liveaboard. If anyone has any You Tube links I'd appreciate it.
    Thx

    Lots of the Seasearch Facebook groups include Norwegians, you could try asking there.

    Hello, I think some of the fjords offer incredible scenic diving, and it amazes me that so many visit us in Norway and only do the wrecks. Last weekend we dived a lovely fjord on slack water, it reminds me a lot of a dive I did as a student "Falls of lora" up near Oban. This is 1 hour 20 minutes from Bergen airport.

    You have a long 20-25m dive, surrounded by soft corals and hydroids, then she comes up to around 10m under the bridge and then sucks you down into a wonderful basin at 30m. White heavy sand with walls of life around you. At the bottom are remains from a wreck from around 1700. Cannon, Millstones and Brass ingots.

    Diving on slack was awesome, but the second dive with flow was more exciting. With winter viz it's also lovely to look up 30m and see the bridge. (at 1:23)

    Anyway, my buddy was testing a new GoPro so we do actually have some video if you are interested, as per your post.

    I've just noticed this is quite an old thread resurrected, but I'd already gone to find the link to my photos, so thought I would post anyway! This was a two week trip on the Halton, first week purely squidge diving - main aim to dive the Lophelia reef in Trondheim Fjord... not video, but photos give a good idea of just how stunning the scenic diving is :-) https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=403b8725ab

    Good to see Dykkepedia has been noticed outside Norway sorry we don't have too many articles in English, but Google translate does a good job.

    Cheers

    Dykkepedia works very well, even through Google translate which is how I tend to use it.

    A very good site and well worth a read.
