What to Do in Innherred

Visit Innherred's outdoor museums, historic places and art galleries or explore the area by going fishing, cycling or walking.

Visit a museum

At the Stiklestad National Cultural Center you will find an outdoor museum with exhibitions and guided tours during the summer. The St. Olav Drama is a play depicting the battle at Stiklestad where St. Olav engaged the king's army in the year 1030. This is a key moment in Norwegian history and is considered to be the point at which Christianity first took a solid foothold in Norway. Explore all this at The Stiklestad National Cultural Centre.

Egge Museum is an open air museum, which includes a distinctive 19th century square farm-yard featuring buildings originating from farms in the area.

The museum also covers newer history of agriculture and an old street from the town of Steinkjer.

Newer history from World War II is presented at Falstadsenteret in Levanger.

Water activities

There are a number of companies offering canoe rental and both fresh- and saltwater fishing in local lakes and fjords. Try the Verdal River for salmon fishing.

The Hopla water system in Levanger and 50 lakes in Steinkjer are all easy to reach and are excellent areas for fishing.

Most of the fishing spots also offer some form of overnight accommodation. This is the case at Skarnsundet Fjord Centre for example. Here you also can rent kayaks. You can also rent a canoe at Føllingstua Camping and Brandheia Villmark & Velvære.

The only public swimming pool in the area, Dampsaga Bad, is located in Steinkjer along the E6.
