Cave - Life before the Ice Age
A trodden floor and
stone tools from over 120,000 years ago. They are proof of human life
on Wolf Mountain before the Ice Age covered the land for thousands of
years. Wolf Cave is a unique attraction; there is nothing like it
anywhere else in the Nordic countries. The terrain around Wolf Cave is
abundant with signs of the Ice Age, and the cave itself is the oldest
