Explore our range of exciting activities at Vitlycke Museum! From guided tours to creative workshops, find something for all ages and interests. Discover and immerse yourself in cultural history and archaeology through our engaging activities and events. Please note that Vitlycke museum is closed for the winter and reopens in the spring.

The main attraction, of course, are the rock carvings on the Vitlycke rocks, which are just a few hundred paces from the museum. If you want to see more of the World Heritage Site, there are four other rock carving areas to visit: Aspeberget, Litsleby, Fossum and the path called Walking in the World Heritage Site.

With or without a guide

You can walk on your own among the rock carvings or take part in one of our guided tours in Swedish and English, which take place every day during the summer season. Vitlycke museum also offers guided tours  that can be booked in advance for large and small groups. You can get anything from a 60-minute introduction to the World Heritage Site to a four-hour guided tour, visiting carvings that are far from roads and tourist routes.
