We meet 9am at the parking space in Ankarvattnet. From there it is four kilometres of hiking on boardwalks leading through a wild mountain spruce and birch forest.
Once we arrive at the small cabin near the cave we have a coffee break with snacks consisting of locally produced delicacies before putting on the caving equipment. On the forest edge there is an outdoor toilet, a fireplace and fresh, drinkable, spring water. You can leave any valuables in a locked room.
Now it is time to enter the cave. For two hours we are disconnected from the outside world, experiencing complete darkness and silence.
We pass unique formations formed by the cave such as “cave bacon”, “corals” and ancient stalactites, crawling through narrow passages and walking in gigantic halls. Depending on the season we pass masses of ice or dry rock. The way forward is determined by the group’s physical capabilities and daring. Do you have what it takes to crawl into “the Speaking pipe” or through “the Well”?
After two hours, we catch a glimpse of light coming from the crater and we are back in the daylight. Take the opportunity to take a refreshing shower in the waterfall!
The tour is finished with a late lunch, made from local products on an open fire. Around 4 -5pm we’re back at the parking space in Ankarvattnet.
