Eastern Norway Jotunheimen Lom

Flåklypa

Overview
Details

The name relates to two stones in the Bøvra River. When farmers were bringing hay down the frozen riverbed from mountain pastures, parts of the cargo would be knocked off in the narrow gap. This was the inspiration for Kjell Aukrust's famous film success "Flåklypa Grand Prix". Road 5 5, 8 km from the centre of Lom.

Norway`s most popular animated film is ”Flåklypa Grand Prix”, produced by Ivo Caprino and Kjell Aukrust.

The name Flåklypa has to do with two specific stones in the river Bøvra, close to the farm Flå. In earlier times, when the hay was brought home from the mountain farms, usually by horse sledge transport on the ice covered river during winter, they had to pass between the two stones. The passage was so narrow, that the load was stripped on the sides.
8 kms southwest of Lom, on the road 55.
