The old coastal culture is cherished in central Norway, and the coast is a popular recreational area. The islands of Hitra and Frøya offer beautiful, rugged skerries with great fishing. The Fosen peninsula across the fjord from Trondheim features everything from skerries and quiet fjords to trout lakes and mountain terrain.

Inland region
The vast reaches of forest in the Trøndelag region offer bountiful hunting and fishing. From Trondheim, six classic salmon rivers can be reached by car within the hour: Nidelva, Gaula, Orkla, Stjørdalselva, Stordalselva and Norddalselva.

So let Trondheim be your centre from which you can take day trips to explore nature at its most beautiful and best.
