Tanum World Heritage rest stop
The World Heritage Tanum Rest Area is a rest area for motorists, but also have an exhibition as well as a viewpoint overlooking the World Heritage Site. The exhibition features brief summaries of the four main attractions in the World Heritage Site – Vitlycke, Fossum, Aspeberget, and Litsleby. It also tells the story of the landscape’s history in relation to the rock carvings, about travellers then and now, and, most importantly, about the global idea behind World Heritage Sites.
In addition to amenities typically found at a rest area, such as picnic facilities and toilets, there is also a ramp that leads to a viewpoint where you can see large parts of the World Heritage Site. From the parking area, a trail leads to a smaller rock carving panel and several other cultural heritage remnants. The trail is 1 kilometre long, round trip.
