About Sølvsberget fra sør

Experience the remains of a volcano in the middle of the lush agricultural area of Hadeland. On top there are clear traces of a stone fortress. There is a marked trail from the parking area at Sølvsbergveien just west of the yard at Lunde, with information boards along the way. This is an excellent family outing with experiences for all ages. Such volcanoes are rare, but there are several in Hadeland. Sølvberget rises as a pronounced peak in the otherwise hilly terrain between Gran and Tingelstad on Hadeland. The distinctive profile is due to the fact that Sølvberget is an old volcano, which consists of a harder rock than the sedimentary rocks around it. From the top you see north to Brandbukampen, which are also remnants of a volcano. Large mounds of soil and stone bound the peak of Sølvberget from the south and west. The sides facing north and east are partly steep and difficult to access. Here we find a large and bulky stone fortress from the Iron Age. Getting there: From Gran center drive the Fv 36 towards Grymyr. After about 6 km turn right onto Fortensvegen. Turn left after about 200m towards Sølvberget and drive approximately 800 meters further.
