Dive Center


  • Dive into cold, clear waters with PADI 5* IDC dive center Lofoten Diving, one of Norway's premier diving and kayaking centers located 300 km north of the polar circle
  • Drop down into crevises covered with other-worldly life and starfish, glide past fjord walls that plunge to unimaginable depth and drift through mesmerizing kelp forests
  • Explore impeccable wrecks, preserved by the cold waters of the North Sea, or drift dive through narrow straits as the tide changes and 'refills' a mighty fjord
  • Non-divers will be glad to hear of the 'snorkeling above the arctic circle program', suitable for any swimmer and organised so divers and non-divers can enjoy a day out together


Lofoten Diving is one of Norway's premier PADI 5* IDC dive center, located in a stunning and biologically diverse archipelago often called 'mini-Norway'. 

For those dry-suit qualified (or keen to do the training), diving into this clear, cold water is an incredible experience. Experience untouched and little-known Arctic flora and fauna including spectacular jellyfish, starfish, kelp, fields of algae and fish such as halibut, cod and flounder. 

Diving takes place in the open sea (where numerous impeccably-preserved wrecks are waiting to be explored), or within fjords along walls that plunge down to unbelievable depths. All dives with Lofoten Diving include an experienced guide, the option to rent quality gear and warm drinks during the surface interval to keep you cosy.

Resort Description

Lofoten Diving proudly offers a cozy home-from-home for divers overlooking the stunning Norwegian archipelago, 300 km beyond the polar circle. 

Experience diving like never before; explore hidden worlds within fjords, drift through narrow straits as tides fall and refill, discover well-preserved wrecks and inspect mysterious canyons, nooks and crannies in submerged post-glacial mountain walls.

During the winter season, visibility can average around 40 meters, with temperatures between zero and three degrees. Despite the chilly conditions, this is the best time of year to spot orca and witness cod spawning. 

How to get there


  • The best airport to fly into is Leknes, which is a 15 minute drive from the resort. 
  • The team will arrange to pick you up from the airport for an additional cost (advance notice required). 
  • Check-in time is 3 pm. 


  • Check-out time is 12 noon. 
  • On the final day of your stay, the team will drop you back at the airport (additional cost, advance notice required).
