Limited capacity: 10 divers.

We are going to embark on a journey around the Arctic Circle to dive some of the most spectacular caves and mines in the world on a dive expedition for 14 days in total. We will have 11 days of diving, traveling more than 1300 miles through 3 countries (Norway, Sweden and Finland). We will see the valleys and wild mountains of Scandinavia while being surrounded by some of the world’s most spectacular landscapes. In addition to the incredible diving, we will have the opportunity to explore the forests of the region on snowmobiles and hike in search of wolves and elk. We will take a tour of one of the local dry caves so we can understand the geology in more detail and will also have the opportunity to ski in the area and enjoy traditional Scandinavian sauna.
