Starting from £77.22 GBP / Adult
An approximate 40-minute drive will take you from Molde towards Eide and the Bergtatt Opplevelser, or Grotto. The marble quarry has been run by the Naas family since 1938 and in 1955 they began to remove limestone for the pulp industry. Eventually they dug so deep into the mountain that they ended up with 40 kilometres of mines on 11 floors, some of which the family decided to open to visitors. Arriving at the mine, you'll be met by your guide and then driven in on your coach. Following the road, which disappears into a big tunnel, you'll suddenly be engulfed by darkness—but only briefly—before seeing a glimmer of light further ahead. Suddenly the road widens out and you'll arrive in the first great hall which is lit by chandeliers. Their light is reflected in clear water in the marina area. Here, you'll leave your coach and divide into smaller groups to watch a short film about the mining operation and geography of the area and to take a large barge that will carry you even further into the darkness, across the lake.
