Attractions in Innherred

The rock carvings at Bøla and the Stiklestad National Cultural Center are among the attractions you should visit in Innherred.

Rock carvings

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.
