This is a great waterpark located in the middle of Harstad city. There are several different types of pools, hot therapeutic pools, regular swimming pools, stream, and there are bubble baths and steam sauna. They also have a quite exciting waterslide, where you can race your friends.

Nice, clean pool. Great for young and old. The pool is situated deep underhill and this creates a nice atmosphere.

We had a great day at the water park today! There were so many options at the water park. Our almost 2 year old had a blast. Highly recommended!

Upside: Comfortably heated pool, water slide, clean, both fun and relaxing depending on what you are after. Downside: Tends to get a bit crowded in the dressing rooms/showers, food and drinks are very pricey, no windows (grotte = cave). Worth a visit, and the hotels in Harstad offer accommodation + tickets to Grottebadet during the weekends at very reasonable prices.

One of the nicest waterparks in the whole of northern Scandinavia. If you are a family travelling to Harstad I'd recommend a trip to the Grottebadet (The "Grotto Waterpark"). They have kids' pools and water slides, and also hot baths for grown-ups. One of the more "modern" and cool attractions in Harstad. There's also a really nice gym there in... More

A very nice way to spend a rainy day. Lots of different pools and a good slide. A bit costly, but there are often good hotel deals that include entrance to the pools. The ticket/key system can be puzzling for those new to it.
