About Gardbergstigen

Gardbergstigen starts from the center of Slidre, passing by a cultural landscape up to the Gardberg field on the Slidre hill. This area was used as a burial ground during the Iron Age, and there are more than 550 registered burial mounds and over 900 finds from the Roman Iron Age to the Viking period. The whole area is approx. 2 sq. km and the lower parts with the Einangsteinen rune stone has been made accessible for the public. The Einangsteinen rune stone dates back around the year 300 ad., and is the oldest rune stone in Northwestern Europe that is still in its original location.
