Grong – Rørvik – Leka
Day 1: Grong
Grong is a paradise for outdoors lovers all year round. Its fantastic alpine ski slopes and cross-country ski tracks make it a popular destination in winter. In summer, Grong is a perfect starting point for hiking. Extend you visit by an extra day and try the freshwater and salmon fishing.
Day 2: Grong – Rørvik, 110 km. / 1 hour 50 mins
Rørvik is home to the coastal museum Norveg, a spectacular building with exciting exhibitions. The town is an ideal base for excursions to the archipelago of the Namdal coast and is very popular among divers because of its clear waters. In summer we recommend a visit to the conservation village of Sør-Gjæslingan. Accommodation is available both at Gjæslingan and many of the islands outside Rørvik.
Day 3: Rørvik – Leka, 86 km. / 1 hour 35 mins
The journey to the saga island of Leka takes an hour and a half, though you can also travel there by ferry. Leka is known for the unusual yellow-red rock found many places in the island and has its own geology trail. As everywhere on the Namdal coast, the fishing is great and there are plenty of places offering boats for hire and accommodation.
