Ytterøy - The pearl of the Trondheimfjord
Ytterøya is rightly called the pearl of the Trondheimsfjord. Ytterøya has a beauftiful rolling culture landscape characterised by long periods of human activity and care. It is no wonder that Asmund Olavson Vinje (a famous Norwegian author) in 1860 while staying at Inderoy, gazing out over Ytterøy and the other neighboring villages wrote - "Here I see glorious fjords and villages".
