You’ll discover the White Mines of Gudvangen on this tour, an underground network of tunnels lined with rare anorthosit – a white mineral which can only be found here and on the moon. You’ll journey single file through the cave tunnels, which open up to show small pools and icy ponds. There’s no talking allowed – even a whisper will echo around caverns. Instead, music and dripping water are the only sounds to fill the air, while lighting effects create hues of pinks and greens as you journey further inside. Eventually, you’ll enter the main hall, where you can relax on cozy reindeer skins and relax at the cave bar. The drive to and from the attraction is worth a mention, too. You’ll journey up the mountainside, past vast lakes, plunging waterfalls and through winding tunnels. There’ll be a photo stop at the spectacular Tvinde waterfall, which thunders down the rock face for 152 metres. Be prepared to encounter some exciting hairpin bends on the way, as well.
It's cold inside the cave and the terrain is pretty uneven, so make sure you wear comfortable shoes.
