For years we have been waiting for a suitable moment to go ice diving. Unfortunately circumstances have not been ideal in the western part of Europe for a decent ice dive. To increase our chances for a beautiful ice dive we take off to the northern part of Europe. Here we will have a guaranty for ice, cold and nice people.
In the White Sea a safety stop is seldom boring. At most places you can come up along the steep rocks while you enjoy the underwater landscape of plumose anemones. Don’t forget to look into the open water from time to time. Large free swimming jellyfishes with long white tentacles pass by on a regular basis. The jellyfishes are nice to see, but be careful that the tentacles don’t touch your face.

Take a trip to the north of Russia to dive? For most people this doesn’t sound very attractive. Our friends immediately declared us insane. Travel to that scary, unfriendly and grey country? And even go diving there? But we went towards our adventure. And what we would find here, we could not have imagined. We arrived at the northwest of Russia and we stepped back in time. Friendly people welcomed us in their world. The Arctic water was cold but impressed us with a beautiful under water landscape. Travel along with us to this strange world and enjoy the beautiful underwater world!
