Vesterålen is one of the most beautiful places in the world, but few know that, below the waves, it offers a unique underwater experience, unmatched anywhere in the world. This summer, at the fishing village of Nyksund, we can offer you amazing snorkeling and freediving safaris.

Nyksund is located on the outer edge of Vesterålen, right next to the ocean. Nyksund is a small town with a vibrant local community and coastal culture, with a small fishing quay, several restaurants, art exhibitions, a bookstore and secondhand shop.

Nyksund offers nature in the raw, both above and below the water. This is where the famous mountain route Dronningruta starts from, and this summer we offer safe guided underwater excursions to fantastic snorkeling- and freediving sites with beautiful landscapes, huge kelp- and seaweed forests and a uniquely rich sealife. The time has come to discover for yourself what the ocean covering 70% of the earth's surface really looks like – in vivid close up.

You can choose whether to go snorkelling on the surface, or try the more adventurous free diving. Free diving involves using your lungs as your only air reserve, which gives you more freedom and more time to explore the underwater environment. If this sounds like an extreme sport for a brave few, we assure you the opposite is true. With our experienced instructors and proper equipment, it’s completely safe. Our free diving trips along the Nyksund coast are perfect for you and a friend, your family or a small group. It might even change your life! Arctic snorkelling and free diving are activities that can be enjoyed equally by young and old adventurers. It is great for anyone who wants to experience something completely different – suitable for both beginners and experienced freedivers.

Feel free to contact us directly for more information, or make a booking via our website:

Welcome to Nyksund this summer – a snorkelling, free-diving paradise.
