Description du circuit

The Tvibotni lava tube has a huge amount of beautiful lava formations. A part of the lava tube consists of a false floor, so there’s a second level. Caution should be taken whilst exploring the upper floor. This cave is larger than expected for a lava tube. When you enter the second half of the upper floor the area has a width of 10 metres and is 10 metres high from floor to ceiling.
