Description

Bjørneremshelleren lies 200 m obliquely up from Bjørnerem, by RV 668 road. The first people to settle in Romsdal probably lived in these caves. Findings provide evidence of particularly good fishing and hunting conditions. The findings included the remains of a bear's skull - hence the name "Bjørnerem" ("bjørn" meaning bear).
