Here, the underwater world is completely different than it is in, for example, in Egypt or
Malta. Giant brown algae plants make you feel, for a moment, as though you were walking through a
thick forest. Burgundy, brown and red colors dominate the waters here. The floors are uneven. You will often find
big crabs (Cancer pagurus), which at the sight of a diver retreat as far as possible, and try to hide. You may also
encounter starfish, lobster (Homarus gammarus) and cod. An interesting fact is that during the later summer months
the water temperature increases several degrees C. It can be a pleasant surprise. Waters are much colder at,
for example, the Arctic Circle or at the famous Lofoten Islands.
A trained eye will also be able to spot monkfish (Lophius piscatorius) or cyclopterus lumpus fish. There are also
snails, jellyfish, mackerel and nice sea ants, and starfish that often have up to 9 arms. Occasionally you will also
run into the spotted wolffish (Anarhichas minor), which are known for being very tasty.
The coastline of Norway spans 25 148 kilometers. It is very well developed, full of indents, coves and islands.
Two-thirds of the country's land is made up of mountains with glaciers. In Norway's territorial waters, you will
also find plenty of wrecks.
