The guided tour

Experience the Cave

How long is the guided tour?

The guided tour goes 400 meters into the mountain and lasts for about 45-60 minutes.

What will I experience inside the cave?

Inside the cave you will see an underground river and waterfalls (perhaps also a few fisk), stalactites and many beautiful formations which nature has spent hundreds of thousands years on digging out. You will also see a peculiar granite stone which has been left inside the cave by glacial forces.

Until now over 4.000 meters of the cave has been mapped out and discovered, but still there are unknown passages which has yet to be explored.

The history of Grønligrotta

Hundred years of guided tours

The Cave's Discovery

The Grønligrotta Cave was most likely discovered before the first settlemend on the Grønlia Farm, which was around 1750. A map of the cave was first made in 1914 by the Norwegian geologist Oxaal.

Guided tours since the early 1900's

For over hundred years there have been guided tours in Grønligrotta. The family living on the farm often had to set pause to their other farm-related work tasks and let visitors in to give them guided tours inside the cave. They had a boxlight as their only source of light and walked a longer route than the we do today, through what we now know as "The Labyrinth". These passages are smaller and they needed to climb and crawl in order to get through.

The Modernization of 1960

Around the year 1960 the farm installed stairways, walkways and electric lights inside the cave, and so the route for today's guided tours had been established. With this facilitation the cave became more accessible and easier to experience.
