Boasting a pristine coastline, plenty of rivers, and three national parks, Namdalen is a natural hub for outdoor pursuits.
If you have come to catch a big one, Namdalen – a traditional district in the central part of Norway – will not let you down. All along the coast you can hire boats and fishing equipment and spend the night in charming fisherman’s cottages.
The region is widely known for its many salmon rivers, including Namsen, which is known amongst anglers as one of the best salmon rivers in Europe. Several small rivers also offer thrilling battles between anglers and lively salmon. For a close-up view of salmon and trout, visit the aquarium Namsen Laksakvarium.
In Indre Namdal there are three national parks at your fingertips: Børgefjell national park, Lierne national park and Blåfjella-Skjækerfjella national park. So whether you have come to explore the wilderness by foot or by bike, there is no lack of opportunities.
Even though the nature plays the lead role in Namdalen, the area also boosts plenty of attractions well worth a visit, including the revue festival at Høylandet, Grong’s alpine slopes, and the family park in Namsskogan where you can observe a variety of predators like bears, lynxes and wolves.
The “capital” of Namdalen is Namsos, better known as the “cradle of Trøndelag rock music”. At Rock City, a resource centre for professional music and an experience centre for Trøndelag pop and rock music, you can write your own song, test the lyrics and tones in the studio and learn about Trøndelag’s fascinating music history.
If you’ve got a thirst for adventure and a need for an adrenaline rush, the opportunities for thrilling activities, such as rafting, bungee jumping, and eagle safaris, are plentiful along the Namdal coast. Here you will also find ideal opportunities for both ocean kayaking and diving.
To get a taste of the rich coastal heritage, visit Norveg, a centre for coastal culture and industry located in Rørvik. In the fishing village of Sør-Gjæslingan, which once was one of the most important fishing villages south of Lofoten, you are greeted by more than 80 islands, islets and reefs, as well as a peaceful and charming atmosphere. It is easy to get to Namdalen.
