The “Støypet” Walking Trail

Waymarked trail across colourful rock types from the deepest part of the oceanic crust. The pebble beach 90 metres above sea level (Støypet) was used by Stone Age dwellers some 10,000 years ago. The rocks have a fascinating number of colours and shapes. You can also find the remnants of the sand beaches where Stone Age people once bathed. Just near the starting point, you can observe long, thin black stripes in the yellow rock face. This is chromite, which among other things contains both gold and platinum.
