Vitlycke Museum, in the midst of the World Heritage area, offers a unique environment that can add something extra to your conference. Our premises and our outdoor surroundings in the area offer opportunities for creativity and reflection. Why not combine your conference with activities and unusual experiences? We tailor arrangements to the group’s needs and wishes.
In connection with the conference we can offer guided tours of the carvings at the museum or out in the World Heritage area and a series of different activities at our Bronze Age farm.
The hidden World Heritage
This guided tour takes you further out to into the World Heritage area. We examine rock carvings, painted and unpainted, large and small. Weather permitting we try rubbing, the most used method for reproducing rock carvings, and we see how the images are brought out from their obscurity.
Activities at the Bronze Age farm.
An unforgettable day or evening in Bronze Age surroundings. You will try a series of unusual activities. What about Bronze Age cookery, flint-knapping, firemaking or archery? Who is the best archer in your group? Who can start a fire the fastest?
Night tour: rock carvings in the dark
Viewing the rock carvings by the light of a torch is a memorable experience. We see the images appear, in oblique light, clearer and in more detail than by daylight. The guide tells you about the 3000-year-old images, about the rock carvers and their world. Wrap up warm for a night time adventure on the rocks, and by all means, bring a torch for your own explorations in the dark. Night tours can be booked between 6th of August and 20th of May, as long as the panel is ice-free.
Try the work of an archaeologist
How do you find carvings in the landscape and on the rocks and what are the methods archaeologists use to reproduce the images? This activity gives you a taste of how the survey and documentation of the rock carvings is done. We do doing rubbings, tracing and painting carvings with chalkwash. Vitlycke’s attractive premises in a unique historical environment will make your conference unforgettable. Contact us and together we will work out a programme giving you a complete day/evening at the World Heritage Site.
