The Tanum World Heritage area is a short drive or bus trip north from Fjällbacka. And well worth it. It really is an extraordinary place where, some 3,000 years ago, Bronze Age Swedes carved depictions of their lives into the rocks and left us with a record that, while wildly interesting from an archaeological and historical viewpoint, is fantastic art.
Archaeologists have uncovered just 26 of the some 430 sites here where rock art appears. Next time you come to this fabulous place they'll probably have discovered more.
The major sites and rock 'panels' here are Vitlycke, Aspeberget, Litsleby and Fossum. You can drive around the entire site, or bike or foot parts of it. Why not make a day of it and bring a picnic?
