Enter the underground world of Bergtatt marble mine to explore a network of caverns and cruise on a wooden raft across a subterranean lake, plus enjoy a scenic drive through the picturesque town of Eide. You’ll first be equipped with a helmet and life jacket — and then follow your expert guide into the shadowy surroundings of Bergtatt, a working marble and limestone mine dating back to the 1930s. Watch a film that explains the mine’s history and cave’s geology, and then board a wooden raft for a relaxing glide across crystal-clear lagoon waters that reach far into — these hidden caverns keep a cool 42 degrees year round. Journey toward the grand Arkadene hall, an illuminated space where Norwegian meals and cultural events are held. You’ll even get the chance to tap spring water by-hand directly from the cave walls. The 30-minute bus ride back to Molde reveals dramatic landscapes teeming with mountains, rivers, fjords and the deep blue sea.
