Vingen rock carvings
Deep in Vingepollen, a narrow fjord arm surrounded by steep mountains, is Vingen, one of Northern Europe’s largest and most distinctive rock-carving sites. More than 2200 carvings have been discovered here, probably created by neolithic hunters (approx. 6000 years ago). The deer is the most popular motif, but there are also human figures and abstract symbols. Vingen is a protected area, and access is restricted to organised visits. Dogs are not allowed.
