Hjem 5 Activity 5 Hell (potholes)

Hell (potholes)

Northern Europe’s largest cave canyon/potholes were created at the end of the last ice age. At that time, a large glacier flowed down Gausdal and out into Lake Mjøsa, 8 km south of Lillehammer. It was this river that roughed out the gill and made the giant potholes. They are a total of 12-15 larger and smaller potholes in Hell.

The tour takes approx. 3-4 hours including a small luch break.

We recommend good hiking shoes and clothes appropriate for the weather.

Difficulty: Medium, with some steep sections.

The trip is recommended for all ages.
