Film: Activities on the Coast of Sør-Trøndelag
This is what you see in the film about the coast of Sør-Trøndelag:
The Islands of Hitra and Frøya
Hitra and Frøya are two large islands southernmost on the coast of Sør-Trøndelag. Hitra is Norway’s seventh biggest island, and the biggest south of Lofoten. Here we find, amongst other things, northern Europe’s densest population of red deer. A long underwater tunnel (the longest in the world when opened) links the island with the mainland.
Frøya lies even further out to sea, but it too is linked to the world at large by a long, underwater tunnel to Hitra. From Frøya you can travel even further out by boat to the fishing villages of Mausundvær, Bogøyvær and Sula, a trip we strongly recommend. Altogether, Hitra and Frøya consist of almost 7,000 islands, isles and skerries, and the islands are known for some of the best deep-sea fishing spots in the world.
Kjeungskjær Lighthouse is situated on a rocky island 3 km from Uthaug in the borough of Fosen. The island is also a bird sanctuary. The lighthouse is looked after by Kjeungen Kystlag, a coast association which rents it out to those seeking a unique experience on the coast of Trøndelag.
Hopsjø Trading Post, Hitra
In the 17 and 1800s, Hopsjø trading post was one of the biggest of its kind on the coast of Trøndelag. In what may be Norway’s oldest preserved country store (krambua), you can still buy a number of general commodities even today. The country store is open daily during the summer. Pakkhusbrygga wharf has been converted into a restaurant where you can enjoy local fare. In addition to the restaurant and country store, Hopsjø trading post offers meeting and conference facilities and overnight accommodation.
Fishing on the islands of Hitra and Frøya
Hitra and Frøya offer visitors a wide variety of activities. Here you will find, amongst other things, a coastline with thousands of isles and skerries and hundreds of fishing lakes. Hitra and Frøya are renowned for excellent and reliable fishing. Fishing enthusiasts from all over Europe come here to fish both from boats and from along the shore.
The Islands of Stokkøya and Linesøya, Åfjord, Fosen
Fosen is a peninsula centrally situated on the coast of Trøndelag.
The islands of Stokkøya and Linesøya lie shoulder to shoulder, outermost in the borough of Åfjord. Stokkøya is best known of the two, thanks to the Stokkøya Sjøsenter holiday resort with its fantastic Strandbaren beach bar.
Both Stokkøya and Linesøya have plenty of magnificent countryside to offer, and are perfect for cycling. They are also a great starting point for deep-sea fishing. When on Stokkøya, you can drive out to Linesøya along the Linesøybrua bridge which was opened in 2011.
Stokkøya Sjøsenter Holiday Resort, Hosnasand Beach on Stokkøya Island
The Stokkøya Sjøsenter holiday resort is situated at Hosnasand on the island of Stokkøya, a 400 metre long beach which is decidedly one of the finest in Trøndelag. At Stokkøya Sjøsenter you can spend the night in one of the distinctive SUB cabins (subterranean – you sleep underground!), enjoy a delicious seafood meal behind the glass walls of the Strandbaren and feel that time is passing just a little bit slower.
In 2012, Stokkøya Sjøsenter and the Strandbaren were voted one of the world’s Top 10 beach holiday resorts by Travel + Leisure (CNN).
Stokkøya Sjøsenter offers a wide range of activities including diving, sailing, kayaking and cycling, and you can also take part in any number of beach activities on your own.
