You can walk through Brunlanes, rich in ancient monuments. Numerous discoveries tell that people have lived here for thousands of years.

Few settlements in Norway can exhibit so many and interesting discoveries from the Stone Age and the Iron Age.
You will pass through small fishing villages such as Nevlunghavn and Helgeroa, as well as the Mill, which is one of the gigantic moraines of the Ice Age. There many impressive stone carvings from the older Iron Age can be found. You will also find a unique botanical and geological nature. You will also see close by Berg’s old stone church from the 12th century and an old mill from the 18th century that has been restored and today houses a village museum.
