Below you will find some tour suggestions. Driving is a great way to explore the beautiful countryside of Innherred.
The lake is located between Verdal and Steinkjer. Its circumference is about 33 kilometres and there is a good road going all the way around.
There was timber floating here right up until 1950. The timber was floated down the Figga River to Steinkjer.
Suitable places for an outing nearby include the Stiklestad National Cultural Centre and Steinkjer town centre.
Take the car ferry from Levanger to the island of Ytterøy - the pearl of the Trondheimfjord. The island has a network of roads which are perfect for round trip excursions either by car or bicycle.
Ytterøy has one of Norway's densest stocks of roe deer. This is also a place of historical significance. Mining operations over the past three centuries have been of much importance to the island, and they still are to this day.
Around the Trondheimfjord
Good places to start this trip are Steinkjer and Stiklestad with its National Cultural Centre. In Steinkjer you might want to visit Egge Museum.
Continue your drive along E6 to Asp and then get on fv. 17 - Kystriksveien. Drive to Hjellbotn and then exit onto fv. 720 towards Malm and Follafoss. You will first arrive in Malm, and then drive through the villages of Follafoss, Verrastranda and Verrabotn. You will then enter the municipality of Mosvik and drive via the Trongsund Sound to the Skarnsund Sound, where one of the world’s longest cable-stayed bridges will take you over to Inderøy.
The Golden Route
This is a round trip taking you through beautiful cultural landscapes along fv. 761 (with side roads) in the municipality of Inderøy.
The Golden Route, "Den Gyldne Omvei", in the heart of Trøndelag is an interesting stretch defined by 18 small businesses and sights.
Here you will find an art gallery, a small sculpture park, crafts, farm products based on local recipes, accommodation, and a wide range of activities.
Why not plan an excursion around Innherred's churches dating from the Middle Ages? The relatively large concentration of medieval churches bears testimony to the great prosperity that existed in Innherred in the 1100s.
Start out at Alstadhaug Church in Skogn, a church dating from 1180, just near one of the county's largest burial mounds.
Stiklestad Church in Verdal further north is a Roman church that also dates from 1180. It is built on the site where St. Olav was killed during the battle in 1030.
Once back on the E6, the trip continues northwards to Mære Church, which was built in 1199.
Towards Inderøy on fv. 761, you will first come to Hustad Church at Sandvollan, the smallest of the surviving medieval churches. The church is encircled by a notched log fence that is the only one of its kind remaining in Trøndelag.
Finally, at Straumen in Inderøy, you will come to Sakshaug Old Church. It is likely that the stone masons who built Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim participated in erecting this church at the end of the 1100s. Look for the characteristic demon masks in the church décor.
