Plan your trip to Namdalen

Boasting a pristine coastline, plenty of rivers, and three national parks, Namdalen is a natural hub for outdoor activities.

The district of Namdalen is located in Trøndelag in the middle of Norway. The “capital” is Namsos, better known as the “cradle of Trøndelag rock music.” Here you can learn about the region’s music history and create your own tunes at Rock city.

Enjoy the ocean breeze in fishing villages like Sør-Gjæslingan, try kayaking or get your adrenaline pumping when you go rafting or bungee jumping. And you simply cannot visit Namdalen without trying your luck at fishing. The region is wildly known for its salmon rivers, and Namsen is by many anglers considered one of the best salmon rivers in Europe.

Along the coast, you can rent boats and fishing equipment and stay in charming fisherman’s shack. To get a taste of the rich coastal heritage, visit Nordveg, a centre for coastal culture and industry in Rørvik.

If you want to spend more time in the wilderness, the region offers no less than three national parks: Lierne, Blåfjella-Skjækerfjella, and Børgefjell. If you stop by Namsskogan family park, you can also observe animals like moose, bears, lynxes, and wolves – and try zip lining!
