The Bøla Reindeer is one of Europe's best known rock carvings and has become a classic example of a hunting carving from the Stone Age. There are also figures of a bear and an elk in the same area.
In recent years, a carving in the form of a human – the Bøla Man – has been uncovered. Remarkably enough, he is equipped with a pair of skis.
You will find the rock carvings at Bardal along rv. 285, 9 miles from the center of Steinkjer.
