THE CULTURAIL TRAIL STRAUMEN - VANGSHYLLA
The cultural trail Vangshylla – Straumen is probably the first country road in Utøy, seeing as it goes along the fjord, where the first settlement was. Today, the trail is almost 18 km long and involves 62 different landowners. You can walk the path in its entirety (5-6 hours), or select one of several natural stages.
Along the trail there are several cultural, historical and botanical sights, which are described in more detail on special information boards (about 50 in total). On the information boards you can read about historical sites, plants and animals. And about the people who lived here. At inderoysti.no you can make a virtual journey along the route - with details of all the historical points along the way, and also a little more!
The hiking map (foldable) shows the entire cultural trail and is useful to take along on the trip. The maps are available at the starting points. The map can also be ordered here: https://travel-shop.no/shop/vandrekart-kultursti-straumen-vangshylla-pa-inderoy/
