Caving in Northern Norway

From Bodø in Northern Norway you find caves both for beginners and if you are looking for a more thrilling experience. Nordland is the area in Scandinavia with the best possibilities to do caving. Day trips from Bodø on request for small groups.

If you want to join a guided adventure underground trip, we offer caving adventure  including both walking, crawling and abseiling. Caving is a year-round adventure for both novice and experienced cavers. No prior caving experience is required for these trips; however, participants should be reasonably fit. Anyone with some hiking experience will do fine. Best of all; no matter what weather or season!

From beautiful limestone formations to deep caving systems, Nordland has underground adventures for all interests. Half and full day trips to a variety of caves with transport from Bodo available. This is The Underground Scenic Wonderland in Northern Norway! Caves are dark, mysterious and challenging. Most of the caves in Norway are “wild” caves and have not been developed in any way. They are the same temperature (above freezing) all year round, and feel cool in the summer and warm in the Winter.
