THE BATTLE OF STIKLESTAD

THE DEADLIEST LANDSLIDE IN NORWEGIAN HISTORY

Just north of Stiklestad you can today see the remains of the deadliest landslide in Norway’s history; The Verdal landslide. On the night of 19th May 1893, 55 million cubic meters of clay flooded the entire Verdal. 3 km² disappeared in the clay masses, 105 farms, thousands of animals and 116 people perished in the slide. A monolith has been erected to commemorate what happened.

THE VÆRDALSKE FORTIFICATIONS

The defense facility The Værdalske Fortifications was completed in 1911 and consists of two mountain galleries, Southern and Northern Gallery, which are blasted into the mountains on either side of the river Inna. From the early 1990s, extensive work by volunteers have made it possible to make the fortresses available to the public.

KARL JOHANS VEG

An alternative to the road Fv72 is the well-preserved King Karl Johans road, from 1835 and is 17.5 km long. Several unique period stone vaults and  bridges have also been preserved, including Kong Karl Johan’s Klev. At one point the road crosses the road Fv 72. The road surface is mainly gravel and grass. The road is today a widely used walking route.

OLAVSKJELDA

The monument “Olavskjelda” is 500 meters from road Fv72. According to legend this is where King Olav Haraldsson held a night break at the farm Sul during his army expeditions towards Norway in 1030. The stone monument is 1:04 meters.

We can arrange for a guide, if desired. We can offer accommodation at Stiklestad, and on both sides of the border. Should you wish to continue the 60 km further to Åre, we can facilitate accommodation there as well. We provide maps and route descriptions. Please contact us for an offer.

We recommend 2 over night stays, 2 dinners, breakfast and lunch, bike hire, luggage transport, map and route description. For more information and booking contact us through this email-form.
