Try your hand at dog sledging, a great way to see the spectacular Norwegian wilderness. During the winter months you are ideally situated to see the spectacular northern lights, too, with their ethereal dance of colours across the night sky. Visit Bossekop with its traditional markets, or maybe Elvebakken with its harbour, and not forgetting the town centre itself with its many shopping opportunities. From modernity to the ancient past, be sure to check out the ancient rock carvings that date back thousands of years. First discovered in the 1960s, many petroglyphs have been found scattered across 45 sites throughout the region. The largest one is at Hjemmeluft. The open air museum is a great way to see the rock carvings in an organised way as you follow the well defined boardwalk that guides you around the mysterious and ancient markings. Whatever you decide to do in this part of Norway, car hire is undoubtedly the best option for getting around and seeing all that this beautiful part of the world has to offer.
