The Rock Art Area

In the snow-free period the outdoor rock art area is accessible. You can follow facilitated footpaths to experience a great cultural treasure in the open air.

You have the option between a shorter trip of 1,2 km or the full trip of 3 km. The shorter trail of 1,2 km in the western end will take you to rock carvings that have been painted in red. This makes them easier to see in different weather conditions.

On the eastern side are the unpainted rock carvings. Some of these can be difficult to spot in cloudy conditions, but use our guide leaflet to localize as many carvings as possible. Good luck on your rock art hunt!
