Diving in the Arctic demands strength of character because the environment under the ocean surface requires the diver’s full attention. However, if cold water diving is something you enjoy, then a surprising world awaits you with places never before seen by a diver.

The flora and fauna under the ocean surface can only be described as different – even a bit strange – with catfish and lumpsuckers, forests of seaweed and odd looking sea cucumbers all vying for attention. There is a reason why cold water areas biologically are the most prolific areas in the world only surpassed by the coral reefs.

The period from March to September is the perfect time for diving in Greenland. Depending on the temperatures, March and April offer ample opportunities for diving below the ice. Over the summer the nights are light and north of the Arctic Circle, the midnight sun is out from May to July, which allows for diving around the clock.
