The Falcon Trap in Skåbu


During the 17th Century, falcons and other birds of prey were trapped in this construction. The birds of prey were trained and used in hunting by the nobility and the affluent. The falcon trap by Jotunheimvegen has been reconstructed and offers a unique opportunity to see how this type of apparatus works.
