Fishing in the Trondheimsfjord
The Trondheimsfjord stretches all the way from Agdenes to the town of Steinkjer in Nord-Trøndelag, and with its 126 km, it is Norway’s third-longest fjord. On the way up the fjord you pass Trondheim, Indre Fosen, Stjørdal and Frosta before you reach the Innherred Region, with the towns of Levanger, Verdal and Steinkjer, at the top of the fjord.
Trondheim is Norway’s third-largest city, and from here it is easy to access the other regions in Trøndelag, by boat, car, train, coach or plane. The cathedral Nidarosdomen, the old town of Bakklandet, Rockheim – the national activity centre for pop and rock, Ravnkloa and the Solsiden quarters with its many restaurants and shops, are some of the experiences you should try when visiting Trondheim.
Frosta and Tautra
The peninsula of Frosta and the neighbouring historical island of Tauta are just an hour’s drive from Trondheim. Frosta is famous for its verdant countryside and first-class vegetables, but it also offers a wealth of activities and historical sights. At Klostergården in Tautra you can see the old monastery ruins from 1207, and you can buy exciting products from the farm shop. Tautra is also home to a brand new monastery, opened in 2006. Frosta is an ideal starting point for fjord fishing in the Trondheimsfjord.
The Innherred region is home to the towns of Levanger, Verdal and Steinkjer, as well as Inderøy with the Golden Route. The bridge Skarnsundbrua in Inderøy connects Fosen and Innherred. The Skarnsundet sound is a great fishing ground and you can also go on a guided eagle safari in the area. A cultural landscape defines large parts of Innherred, with plenty of sights for those interested in culture and history. Verdal is home to the Stiklestad National Culture Centre, where a play about St Olav and the defining battle for the Christianisation of Norway is performed every year.
