Overview

The cultural landscape below Kolsåstoppen is an exciting area with traces of early settlements, rare rock carvings, rich wildlife and connections to famous painters such as Christian Skredsvig and his work "The Boy with the flute" that is displayed in the National Gallery.

The cultural landscape below Kolsåstoppen is an exciting area with traces of early settlements, rich wildlife and connections to famous painters such as Christian Skredsvig and his work "The Boy with the flute" that is displayed in the National Gallery and here we also find rare petroglyphs from the early Iron Age that are important for depicting and understanding our ship history.

At Dalbo, there are the first traces of one of the most important technological innovations in shipping in the years around the birth of Christ. The rock carvings of ships on the rock surfaces at Dalbo show the transition from ships that are paddled to ships that are rowed. This development took place sometime between 500 BC and the first centuries after Christ. The development of the rowing ship opened up to be able to build larger boats and cross over longer stretches of sea. The new technology that developed changed the cultural conditions in Norway and the Nordic countries, in the form of increased interaction, cultural influence, trade and warfare.

Dælivann is located in an area that "has the most": ancient cultural landscape, silence, burial mounds and traces of early settlements, old manor sites, carvings from the Bronze and Iron Age as well as lush farms. The area is rich in bird life, insects, flowers and trees. Here you can explore trails and a mosaic of habitats from swamps, streams and freshwater areas through rich cultural sites to varied forest environments, with exciting topography and geology including flat cultural sites, steep slopes and cliffs, where you can experience the two great peaks of Kolsås with extrodinary view over the Oslo area and the Oslo Fjord. Explore trails, nature trail with signs and popular climbing routes depending on available time and skills.

A cultural and nature trail has been created. The path is approx. 3 km that goes into the mixed forest which is part of the Skotta and Dalbo nature reserve.

And in winter time you can fish for roach, perch and pike, and there is an opportunity to go ice skating on Dælivannet.

The tour starts at the Godthaab bus stop. Arrival by own car or 30 min by bus 150 from Oslo / Lysaker. Approximately 1km to enter the cultural landscape from the bus stop, stroll around Dæhlivann (approx. 5km).

Alt 1 - Explore the nature reserve by the lake and the rock carvings. A stroll on dirt roads and trails.

Alt 2 - A hike in the nature reserve with a tour to the Kolsås Summit. A steep climb up to the top of the Kolsås. A 4 hour tour. You have to bring your lunch box and thermos.
