Description

Uburhelleren is not your usual slab of rock, but instead formed by a huge boulder that has slid down the -mountainside. It lies on top of other rocks so that a large hall is created naturally underneath. In the early days of the war resistance fighters hid here and it was adapted with the intention of later use. Follow the marked trail from the old power station at Oltedal. Parking available.
