The azure blue waters of the North sea and Baltic sea were the cradle of human civilization. This is one of the world’s oldest explored bits of sea, and each Arctic Circle country provides its own fabulous environment on Scuba diving. As usual, the north sea is quite windy, but on a calm day, the visibility of diving will be around 4 – 8 meters in the open sea.

But be noticed, diving in Scandinavia is very cold and usually ice cold, so the dry suit is necessary.
