Beneath the tallest mountain in Norway, Galdhøpiggen, lies Juvflya and Mímisbrunnr Klimapark 2469. The glacier Juvfonna is currently melting and retracting, revealing arrowheads and clothing more than 1000 years old. Archaeology and climate change meet in this “climate park”, where visitors, especially children, can learn about on-going climate change processes and the interaction between humans and the environment. Dahlman designed a 1.1 km walkway, which leads the visitors to the entrance of an ice tunnel that takes them 90 metres into the glacier. Here is Mímisbrunnr, the well of knowledge and wisdom in Norse mythology. The walkway is made of heartwood pine and glass fibre grating.
