Fishing has always played an important role for the coastal population of Trøndelag, and even today there are many vibrant fishing villages that retain their unique character and traditions. The venerable fishing village of Halten, in the outermost part of the Froan Landscape Protected Area, was once one of Central Norway's most important fishing village. Today many tourists visit to experience the beauty here and participate in the village's unique history.
From the islands of Hitra and Frøya in the south, via the Fosen peninsula, up to the Namdal coastline and Roan and Bessaker in the north, the thousands of islands and varied coastal scenery make for a landscape that is both wild and charming. With its mix of archipelago, sheltered fjords and easy access to the open ocean, Trøndelag offers superb conditions for anglers, regardless of their skill and experience and the kind of challenges they seek.
