Take your pick amongst eco-friendly activities and local food along The Golden Road.
Inderøy is an unusual peninsula located in the Trondheimsfjord. The landscape is considered an especially beautiful part of the historic Inherred region, where major historical moments in the creation of the kingdom of Norway have taken place. The nature on Inderøya island is ideal for biking, hiking, swimming, fishing, boating, and numerous other outdoor activities. There are several ways to reach the peninsula.
The Golden Road is a local cooperative that works to enhance the quality of experiences at the peninsula, with increasingly strict requirements for present and new member businesses.
In the 1990s, some local businesses with common interests gathered to create The Golden Road. The idea of this detour off the E6 has since grown into a widely known brand that attracts visitors from far away. From 10 member companies in 1996 they now count more than 22 dedicated stops, including artist workshops, local food by farmers, galleries and art museums, sculpture parks, and historical memorials.
Inderøy has received the certificate Sustainable Destination, a seal of approval given to destinations that work systematically to reduce the negative impact of tourism. That said, the open landscape is the perfect green destination. Life here could hardly be more based on nature, helped by a new ecological conscience eagerly put into practice by the carefully selected member businesses.

The certification Sustainable Destination is a seal of approval given to destinations that work systematically to reduce the negative impact of tourism. In addition to providing visitors with enjoyable experiences, the destination must preserve the local nature, culture and environment, strengthen social values, and be economically viable. The municipality and the travel industry must cooperate closely to assure that the destination is a great place both to live in and to visit.
