Hey guys,

I'm really interested in free diving, but my budget does not allow big and fancy travels to the other side of the world. So instead I just freedive around Scandinavia and UK.

In case there are any Scandinavians reading this (or others who have been freediving in Scandinavia), can you give me any hints to good spots along the Norwegian coast, Sweden or, in particular, Denmark?

I will be very glad to recieve any replies!

Cheers, Emil Jacobi

On your side of the bridge, I like Mön and Limfjorden. In Sweden, I usually go to Kullen and the south east coast of Skåne. Beeing desperate, the west harbour area of Malmö will have to do...

If you're travelling, try the area between Göteborg and Halmstad - I suggest a look at DMI.dk first though, since the currents can be mean!

Hi Emil,

Freediving around UK is fine, but not that deep from my experience, it is worth contacting Sam, who organizes stuff with "Saltfree" I think they have their own place here somewhere.. they organize trips to go diving in Chepstow which is in South Wales.. cold but very deep with good friends.. good experience.
Now Norway.. I went diving there last summer.. excellet place for visibility and all, bit on the cold side again, but plus side was loads of fun stuff swimming around and stuck on the bottom and rocks to see.
Norway is expensive choice unless you know someone there and can crash on their place...
I would recomend UK and the Saltfree people for serious diving, they are excellent bunch, and if you are into seeing stuff underwater rather than diving as deep as you can and beyond, PM me before your trip to UK and I'll help you find the spots to go see.. Cornwall is beatiful as I believe is Ireland and Scotland... But Cornwall is here in the south so little warmer..

Hope this was of some help to you Emil, and safe diving to you all!

Hej Emil,

The best freediving site close to Copenhagen, will most likely be Kullen just north of Helsingborg. Depths down to 20-25 meters, lots of magnificent wildlife, pretty good visibility because of the rocky area (as compared to muddy Zealand). Sadly, it's illegal to spearfish there (it is in all of Sweden, for some peculiar reason). But I guess that's why the life is so grand there...
