CAVING, LOM

Caving organized by NATUR OPPLEVINGAR AS

Dummdalsgrottene is situated in the Bøverdalen valley near Sognefjellet about 40 minutes from Lom. Many of the caves have been created by the river Dumma over millions of years. They give a rare opportunity to experience something unbelievably exciting. Something that can't be explained but has to be experienced. In the caves your sense of time and distance are lost in the darkness and sound of the river. The images from the glow of your helmet lamp will stimulate your fantasy.

Caving organized by Lom & Skjåk Adventure

You can be sure to find an activity that appeal. We have activities were you will find peace and relaxation, activities that will inspire and recharge and activities that will increase your heartbeat and give you the ultimate adrenaline-kick.

As long back as the time glaciers covered Norway, the river Dumma has been carving hallways and caves in the limeston-mountains of Dumdalen. Thus has the caves of Dumdalen been shaped through the millenniums.
In the valley Dumdalen, we can find caves left and right. As some lay dry high up in the hillside, like the long and dark "Spiral of Death", others are still being carved by the river further down the valley.

Caving invites you to an exciting experience. Down in natures basement you will get to see extraordinary shapes of stone, total darkness, and silence and tranquility, only interrupted by the sound of the river.
