Hjem 5 Activity 5 Hell (potholes)

Helvete (potholes)

The grandest cave canyon/potholes in Northern Europe were carved during the last ice age. As a massive glacier descended from Gausdal and extended to Lake Mjøsa, 8 km south of Lillehammer, its powerful flow created the remarkable gorge and the immense potholes. The area boasts a collection of 12-15 larger and smaller potholes in Helvete.

The entire tour, which includes a brief lunch break, takes approximately 3-4 hours. To fully enjoy the experience, we suggest wearing sturdy hiking shoes and weather-appropriate clothing.

Difficulty: Medium, with some steep sections.

The trip is recommended for all ages.
