Caving Adventure in Northern Norway

From Bodø in Northern Norway you find caves for both 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. Best season for caving? Winter!

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.

The booking was seamless and extremely well organised. The hike and the cave were great, we could chose between different levels of difficulties, as a trip of 6 boys end of 20s we went for the full fun, and our expectations were exceeded by far. Ivar was prepared for everything most professionally and he is an extremely kind and nice man who helped us to Organise other things as well. Once in a lifetime experience!!

    Is this trip dependent on weather conditions? No, a caving trip, even in NorthernNorway is not dependent on the weather, that is one of the best things with caving.

    Caving is an all year round activity in Northern Norway. Just as perfect in winter time as summer. May be even better in winter time because Nordland has so many other great outdoor adventures in summer than going under the under the surface.
