This Beautiful Secret Underwater Tunnel Will Make You Briefly Forget Your Problems

Deep in the caves beneath Sweden’s Bjurälven River, lies an incredible naturally-formed tunnel that looks like something out of The Goonies.

This cave, which is being called The Secret, has the mystical quality of a vivid dream or another dimension. It was first discovered by three divers back in 2013. Since then, it has been visited by a little over a dozen other adventure-seekers.

What makes this previously unknown cave so unique, you ask? Aside from its beauty, it contains an enormous air pocket that stretches for over a hundred meters, making it more accessible to divers, and giving is a scenic beauty that can’t be seen anywhere above sea-level.


The video of the cave’s exploration shows how erosion has left its walls dimpled with deep, wave-like patterns that match the currents that formed them. It’s hard to believe that this isn’t actually on another planet.

(Don’t watch if you have an irrational fear of tight spaces, being under water, or Sweden).

I’m an English major at Montclair State University, with a minor in creative writing. I started writing short horror fiction when I was six years old, and hope to publish some original pieces some time in the near future. In addition to writing, I enjoy singing, drawing, and acting. Every two weeks, you can see me in my finest lingerie (and about two solid inches of makeup) acting in the Rocky Horror Picture Show with the Home of Happiness in Montclair, NJ. My passion in life is watching people slowly disintegrate their relationships, with others, over arguments like the "Taylor Ham vs. Pork Roll" debate. I enjoy long walks in the woods, and I've never seen a dolphin up close.
