Weather permitting, the journey starts with what has been named one of the world's most beautiful roads— the Atlantic Ocean Road— that crosses islets and skerries all the way out by the sea. Naturally, there will be a photo stop and even during the dark season between middle of November to middle of February there could still be beautiful sights on the Atlantic Road

Then the bus drives into the mountain and the marble mines. Golden marble has been extracted here since the 1930s, and mining has created 40 kilometres of mining shafts over eleven levels.  Part of the mine is a 300-metre lake with clean, clear spring water. 

You set out on the water in a safe, stable raft, and on the way across the underground lake you get to taste the spring water that flows down the sides of the mountain. There are colourful lights in the water and chandeliers in the tunnels which create a magical atmosphere. Wheelchair users can also come on this trip. 

Finally, we meet in the main hall, the large mining hall that can accommodate 300 people. You can watch a film there and learn more about the mining operation. You will be served a meat soup and of course the mine's own spring water to drink. There will be time for a short stroll in Molde town before boarding the Havila Voyages ship again.
