Vanylven audioguide smartguide Voice Of Norway Experio

Vanylven – a new tourism hub

The world's largest sunflower, Cleopatra's periodont diamonds, witch burning, Viking graves, the most beautiful summit hikes at 1000 m above sea level, salmon rivers, stone museum and future ship tunnel! Yes, Vanylven can offer something very special. -Now we create an audio guide so that visitors can more easily find all these hidden gems, and so that the stories are not forgotten, says Erlend Løvold in Vanylven Utvikling.

Top hiking pleasures and holiday taxes

– We promote local value creation, and by being one of the best municipalities that have arranged summit tours, we now give our visitors opportunities for new discoveries over several days. Through the development of the road connection, we open up the area and improve access for visitors. With so many opportunities for experiences for both children and adults, there is no reason not to stay an extra day or two in Vanylven.

Perpetuates history

– In order to highlight and preserve our history, we chose to implement an audio guide, much to the delight of permanent residents and our visitors. Through this work, we have found stories that we have never heard of before, and now we are making sure that all stories are well taken care of in the future.

– We see that the work that has been done fits well into school subjects as well, says Erlend and mentions “Learn about your municipality” as an example. With the audio guide, students can hear the stories where they actually happened.

– We want visitors to join us on a journey through our municipality, and we want them to see all the wonderful things we have and thus understand why we are so proud to live here, says Erlend and smiles.

Guide and audio guide - good supplements

-Both in the church and in the quarry museum we have wonderful guides, even guides who have grown up in the quarry itself. This knowledge is impressive. At the same time, we see the limitations both in time, personal resources and in taking care of the stories. Thus, the audio guide supplements very well to highlight local value creation to all visitors at all times.


-We now have offers both for top tour enthusiasts and those who want to experience the culture and history of our coastal municipality. With the Voice Of Norway audio guide, we guide everyone, at all times of the day.
