Plan your trip to Hitra, Frøya & Fosen

Life on the coast of Trøndelag, also called coastal Norway, is exciting and relaxing. Visit the famous beach bar at Stokkøya, dive into Trøndelag's fantastic underwater world, or catch your own dinner!

From the islands of Hitra and Frøya in the south, via the Fosen peninsula and to Roan and Bessaker in the north, the thousands of islands and varied coastal scenery make for a landscape that is both wild and charming.

The area offers a myriad of possibilities for fishing adventures, both for freshwater and deep-sea fishing. Rent a boat and fishing equipment and stay in a charming fisherman's cabin, or join local fishing guides out on the open sea to feel the big fish bite. The atmosphere here is open and inclusive, and the locals are happy to show you around!

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 Mid-Norway’s most important fishing villages. Today, many tourists visit to experience the beauty and to participate in the village’s unique history.

Get to know the coastal culture at the Coastal Heritage Museum in Rissa or the Coastal Museum of Sør-Trøndelag. Create life-long memories on a sea eagle, bird and seal safari in the Froan Landscape Protected Area. Or you can participate in one of many lively festivals or simply enjoy the peace, quiet, and beautiful light. 

Due to the crystal clear water and the huge diversity of marine species, the coast of Trøndelag is one of the most exciting diving spots in Europe – and diving for scallops is extremely popular.

With its wide range of local food manufacturers and high-quality restaurants, Trøndelag is rightfully called a culinary region. If you want to please your tastebuds, we suggest you visit some of the various shops selling local produce from farmers and small-scale producers or savour fresh seafood served on the beach.
