About Gulen Dive Resort

Gulen Dive resort has been diving the best of Norway fjords and wrecks for over 20 years from their dedicated shorefront dive lodge. It is a breath taking and dramatic locations. Porpoises are seen at the surface. Sea eagles, otter and even harbour seals show up from time to time. All of this is only 20m from the dive boat. Jump in to discover some incredible cold water wreck diving and beautiful reef wall. Gulen is especially well known for the wide range of nudibanchs on the house reef - the reason it is the chosen home for the famous Wetpixel Photo Shootout with Lembeh resort!

The dedicated dive lodge is your home from home in Gulen. There are 8 twin rooms, with either bunk or twin beds. There are two bathrooms in the lodge for all to use. Relax in the spacious living room and dining area. Or cook up a storm in the well stocked kitchen or on the deck BBQ. There are kayaks for exploring the strait. Get a beer in the 200 bar and enjoy it in the hot tub after some great dives, what better way to end the day?

Accommodation is based upon self-catering, but the resort is able to offer meal plans on request. Please ask your travel consultant at the time of booking if you would like to include this as part of your holiday. For those self catering, there is a supermarket just 5 minutes away. The lodge has parking for anyone choosing to rent a car during their stay.

The dive shop is right next door. This is a haven for divers of all persuasions. Photographers - grab your tanks and head onto the house reef for the ultimate in convenience and charge your gear in the camera room.
