Bergtatt Magnificent Marble Mine – Hurtigruten excursion

Bergtatt marble mine by Ørjan Bertelsen, Hurtigruten

The Bergtatt mine is located between the Atlantic Ocean Road and Molde. This excursion will offer you a unique experience surrounded by marble rock scenery and take you on a raft ride on the magnificent subterranean lake. Mining operations in the Bergtatt marble and limestone mine have been taking place since 1938 and are still ongoing in other parts of the mountain.

This is an optional excursion which you can add to your Hurtigruten cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The land excursion will appear during the tour booking process, with prices and details.

Starting in Kristiansund, you will be provided with all the necessary equipment and given a safety demonstration at the marble mine.

Join experienced guides on a raft ride through the cave on the illuminated crystal-clear lake. Along the way, you get to taste the pure and refreshing water that springs from the rock walls.

Arriving the Grand Hall, you will be met by candlelit tables and served a warming meat and vegetable stew made from local ingredients. Surrounded by this magical atmosphere, a fascinating film about the marble mine will be shown.

After emerging from this underground adventure, you will board the bus and experience a short tour of Molde, the ‘City of Roses’.

What our customers say:

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.
