Covered carvings

Some of the carving in the world heritage area are temporarily covered during the winter to protect them from weathering. Here you will find information whether any sites are covered and therefore not available to see.

Book a guided tour

Vitlycke Museum offers guided tours and presentations for groups of different sizes. They are designed for both private individuals and companies, bus tour operators and, not least, schools. You can get anything from a brief 30-minute introduction to the World Heritage Site to a four-hour guided tour, visiting carvings that are far from roads and tourist routes.


The bronze age farm

The farm shows a different aspect of the Bronze Age from the rock carvings. The images on the rock carvings do not seem to have much to do with everyday life; there are no depictions of the artists’ homes, their fields or their pigs. But you can see these at Vitlycke Museum’s Bronze Age farm.
