Helleren in Jøssingfjord
Surrounded by all the tones of grey in the colour scale In a world of nuances of grey lie the two small houses in this particular, extraordinary light: Jøssingfjord and Helleren are surrounded by all the tones of grey in the colour scale. Helleren - "Hedlaren" - forms a natural roof and shelter that have been taken advantage of by people for thousands of years. Helleren is large - the drop fall measures at its deepest 10 metres. The two houses do not have roof thatching - simply because they are protected by Helleren - and this is also the reason why these two houses and this landscape provide a unique and special experience. Both houses date back from the 1800s, however large parts of the buildings might be considerably older. Most probably, there has been settlements under Helleren from the 1500s. Dalane Folkemuseum is today the owner and responsible caretaker of the houses.
