Hurtigruten - "Die schönste Seereise der Welt"
The Cobalt Mines on the ridge of Skuterudåsen stretch three kilometres from north to south. Visitors can walk along the side of enormous open-cast mines in a remarkable man-made landscape. They can also take a guided tour into the mines and experience the special atmosphere of tunnels and chambers inside the mountain. The small museums in the mining area give visitors an insight into the working methods and tools used by the miners, and archive material from Blaafarveværket provides information about wages, welfare schemes etc.. There is also a school museum here, with a display about the three schools operated by the Glass Works. You will also be able to visit the Theodor Kittelsen Museum, which exhibits many of the artist’s writings, furnishings and marvellous paintings. And the Cobalt Mines themselves are surrounded by a beautiful but bewitching landscape, reminiscent of Kittelsen’s pictures!
