  • Discover the underground restaurant and try a local dish in this unique setting

Travelling from Kristiansund, we’re met by our guides at Bergtatt who kit us out with all the necessary gear and give a safety demonstration. We’re now ready for an unforgettable journey into the enchanting marble caves.  

Mining operations have been taking place here since 1938 and are still ongoing in other parts of the mountain. 

We’ll head into the heart of the mountain and board rafts on the illuminated crystal-clear lake. As we glide along the calm water, we stop to get a taste of the pure water that springs from the rock wall.  

We’ll then be led to the Grand Hall for a unique subterranean dining experience. Seated at the candlelit tables, you’ll feast on a warming meat and vegetable stew, made from local ingredients. Amid this magical atmosphere, we’ll watch a fascinating film about the marble mine.  

After emerging from our underground adventure, we’ll board the bus and enjoy a short tour of Molde.
