Inside Bergtatt Marble mine

Weather permitting, the excursion begins with what has been named one of the world’s most beautiful roads— the Atlantic Ocean Road— the 8-kilometre-long route that runs across islets and skerries all the way out by the sea. Along the way there will be a photo stop to capture the rugged scenery and enjoy the view.

The bus will then take you 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 crystal clear water.

A safe and stable raft takes you across the underground lake, where you get the chance to taste the pure spring water that runs down the mountain walls. The lake is lit up by colourful lights and the tunnel is decorated with chandeliers, creating a magical atmosphere.

Finally, you arrive in the main hall, a large mining hall that can accommodate 300 people. An entertaining film about the mining operation will be shown. In this unique surrounding, you will be served a meat soup and of course the mine’s own spring water to drink.

At the end of the trip there will be time for a short stroll in Molde town before boarding the Havila Voyages ship again.

Everything ran smoothly without an issue, the accommodation was fantastic and the tours were brilliant. We cannot fault the package at all. I would also like to thank Franziska and Lene, they both were fantastic in answering all my questions promptly, whilst booking the tour. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable holiday!

  • 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.
