Beatiful colors inside the marble mine

Weather permitting, the journey begins with a drive along what has been named one of the world's most beautiful roads—the Atlantic Ocean Road. This route traverses islets stretching out to the sea. Naturally, there will be a photo stop. *


The bus then takes you into the mountain and the marble mines. Golden marble has been extracted here since the 1930s, creating over 40 kilometres of mining shafts across eleven levels. A highlight of the mine is a 300-meter lake with clean, clear spring water.


You will embark on a safe, stable raft to traverse the underground lake, tasting the spring water that cascades down the mountain sides. The journey is illuminated by colorful lights in the water and chandeliers in the tunnels, creating a magical atmosphere. This trip is also accessible to wheelchair users.


The tour concludes in the main hall, a large mining hall that can accommodate up to 300 people. Here, you can watch a film to learn more about the mining operations. A meal of meat stew will be served, accompanied by the mine's own spring water. Before reboarding the Havila Voyages' ship, there will be time for a short stroll in the town of Molde.


* Please note that it will be dark upon our arrival at the Atlantic Road from approximately mid-November to mid-February.

On the Atlantic Road and into a Marble Mine

The Atlantic Road is known as one of the world’s most beautiful roadways. We experienced it at its very best. Then, we went to the Bergtatt marble mine – in the center of a mountain.
