Winter Activities in Innherred

Ice fishing and cross-country skiing are popular winter activities in Innherred.

Ice fishing

Føllingstua Camping in Steinkjer makes an excellent base for ice fishing. Føllingstua Camping is located on the shore of Lake Snåsavatnet, and Lake Leksdalsvatnet is also nearby. Another great spot for ice fishing is the Skjækra area close to the national park. There are cabins for overnight accommodation and snow mobiles are available for transportation. A suggestion is to stay one night in a mountain cabin and one night at Mokk Farm before or after the mountain trip.

Cross-country skiing

Steinkjer boasts fantastic cross-country skiing terrain. At Byafjellet, which is closest to the city center, you can ski to the ski hut (just make sure you check the opening times at the tourist information first).

Overnight accommodation is available at Mokk Farm  where you will also find gorgeous cross-country skiing terrain, with prepared trails leading into the mountains towards Lake Mokkavatnet and Lake Andorvatnet.

You can also go cross-country skiing in Verdal as you approach the Swedish border and near Levanger in the east. Frolfjellet is a popular outdoor recreation area in Levanger.

There are facilities for biathlon and ski jumping at Steinkjer, as well as in Sprova along road rv. 17.
