The Cultural Trail Straumen - Vangshylla in Inderøy


The cultural trail from Vangshylla to Straumen likely traces the path of the very first country road on Utøy, following the fjord where the initial settlements were established. Today, this trail stretches for nearly 18 kilometers, encompassing 62 different parcels of land. You can opt to hike the entire trail (taking 5-6 hours) or select from several natural segments.

Throughout the trail, you'll encounter numerous cultural, historical, and botanical points of interest, each thoughtfully explained on dedicated information boards (around 50 in total). These boards provide insights into historical landmarks, local flora and fauna, and the people who once called this area home.
