Those who were here before us

Some of the most fascinating aspects of Lomsdal-Visten National Park are the traces of those who lived and worked here long before our modern, motorised era. Lomsdal-Visten, called Njaarken Vaarjelimmiedajve by the indigenous Sámi people, is rich in cultural heritage relics, the oldest of which date back 8000–9000 years.
