A one-hour flight from Oslo will bring you to the fishing paradise of Romsdal, where you will find a large variety of fish species, combined with a spectacular scenery and attractions like the Atlantic Road and the Trollstigen Road.

The island municipalities of Aukra, Midsund and Sandøy are excellent starting points for sea angling trips on boats that are built for the open sea.
