Description

The caves on Sørøya.
During WWII, the caves in Nordsandfjorden, Bøle and Kvithellan were inhabited by people who had fled from their homes. More than 100 people stayed in the Nordsandfjord cave, which was the cave on Sørøya that housed the most people during the war. 39 people spent the winter in the Kvithell cave. The cave is easily accessible from the highway and, during the annual Sørøy Festival, a number of activities are arranged in the cave. There are marked trails to the Nordsand-fjord and Kvithell caves.
