The Animal Trail is a natural and cultural heritage trail between Mostien and the museum, suitable for both children and adults.
The trail lets you get to know the local fauna through animal figures, animal sounds and information boards. Every post has a QR code which links to fact sheets about the various animals.
You will also find versions in English and German.
The trail begins at the Sunnfjord Museum parking area. You can start from the first post by the gate in the museum courtyard. The trail has a number of posts along the Movatnet waterfront, and runs through the forest towards the museum shieling. The forest has slightly hilly terrain and some scree before reaching the top with its nice view of Movatnet. Parts of the trail run parallel to the Mostien path, crossing it at several locations.
From the shieling, the trail runs through the woods back towards the museum and the Trondheim Postal Route, before ending up at the gate near the parking lot. You can also walk the Animal Trail in the opposite direction, starting from the parking lot. The trail is about 1 km long, and takes around 30 minutes.
How do QR codes work? Most modern smartphones have QR code scanners built into the camera. You just point the camera at the QR code to scan it, and a link will pop up on your screen. Click the link to open the PDF fact sheet. If your camera doesn’t have a built-in code scanner, you can download a QR code app in the App Store or from Google Play.
