A norway visit May 2011 by www.darkplaces.co.uk members

Post  root@darkplaces on Mon 14 Mar 2011 - 17:45

Hello I am root, I run http://www.darkplaces.co.uk which is an underground, caving, bunkers, mines forum in the uk.

Myself and a friend are planning to visit Norway to look around the stunning country plus visit some caves, bunkers, etc. We are building up locations and it looks like our area of exploration will be between Bergen and Oslo, driving in a rental car. So can anyone help. Help with contacts to normally closed places, the places the public dont get to see. We are experienced mine explorers, we do a bit of caving and don't mind a bit of rope work.

I have started to create a google map of locations...

Cheers.

I think you have chosen the wrong part of Norway.

Look here:

You can use Google.translate to help you with translation.

Almost every natural cave are in Northern Norway.

Bunkers may be easier. You said you were going to Bergen. Visit Fjell Fortress:

Caves & bunkers

Post  Bob Pearson on Wed 16 Mar 2011 - 12:50

I concur with Alt for Norge - the Fjell defence and bunker system is very good and not over-run with tourists. The last time I was there I found various WW2 artefacts, but of course left them where they laid as it is a site of historic interest. Another fascinating place is Kvarven Fort, Bergen, but is quite overgrown with vegetation during the summer (NB the entrance is close to NUTEC - the training site for oil workers). Kvarven Fort is a very interesting site with many bunkers, trench systems and gun emplacements and well worth a visit. The views over the fjord are amazing.

I am not familar with any cave system so cannot offer any guidance on that score, but wish you luck in finding them.

Cheers
