VIKING FEAST AT STIKLESTAD Innherreds beautiful landscape tells a rich history. Through glimpses of the past, we see the landscape of today with new eyes. Experience historic Innherred with the battleground from 1030 at Stiklestad, rock carvings, burial mounds, traces of WWII and great museums. THE CRADLE OF NORWAY The nations birthplace is considered to be Stiklestad in Verdal, where St.Olav was killed in the battle of Stiklestad in 1030. This changed Norway and laid the foundation for modern Norway with Christianity, the judical system and values chracterising the country today. Stiklestad National Cultural Centreconveys this history through exhibitions, storytelling and other events all through the year. ROCK CARVINGS AND BURIAL MOUNDS The Trondheimfjord hs been both transportation route and larder for thousands of years. The infancy of settlement in Innherred can be seen at Bøla, with the 6000 year old rock carving “The Bøla Reindeer”, amongst others. At that time the sea level was higher and people were hunters. Innherred’s consentrastion of large burial mounds and graves testify to active trading with foreign countries. The Viking Age is characterised by strong chiefs concerned with Norse gods and blood revenge. You can learn more about the Viking Age at Stiklestad National Cultural Centre and Egge Museum. FALSTAD The Falstadsenteret in Levanger was during WWII converted from a school for «delinquent boys» to “SS Strafgenfangenenlager Falstad”, the second largest concentration camp i Norway. Ca 4500 persons from 16 countries were detained in the camp from 1941-45.

SKARNSUNDET, INDERØY

THE TRONDHEIMSFJORD The Trondheimsfjord is Norway’s third longest fjord and is perfect for fishing from land and boat. It has a rich diversity of fish, with at least 90 species observed. A day on the Trondheimsfjord can easily become the highlight of your holiday. The sheltered surroundings round Inderøy provide a safe place for all anglers. The strait of Skarnsundet lies between two fjords and two strong tidal currents. Large abundances of fish gather here due to the good feeding conditions. Skarnsundet Fjordsenter rents out boats in various sizes. Fishing tips from land: The pier in front of the apartments at Skarnsundet Fjordsenter and the old ferry landing in Mosvik, just below the spectacular Skarnsundet Bridge. TROUT AND CHAR Snåsavatnet is Norway’s sixth largest lake and is regarded as a great fishing lake for trout and char. Føllingstua Camping and Kvam Motell and Camping in Steinkjer and Oldernæs Strandcamp in Snåsa offer accommodation, fishing licences and boat rental.

This is done at Sportshytta in Steinkjer. Other lakes where you can try your fishing luck are Leksdalsvannet and Veresvatnet in Verdal, in addition to Movatnet and Tomtvatnet in Levanger.

of the Trondheimsfjord and the travel routes to Sweden. The city celebrated its 1000th anniversary in 2011. The network of streets in the city centre is located right down by the idyllic strait, Levangersundet, and the park, Sjøparken.

WOODEN HOUSE TOWN Levanger is one of Norway’s most interesting wooden house towns and represents a major national cultural heritage value. The houses in the city centre are distinctive and unique in a national context, particularly those in Swiss and Art nouveau style.

THE ISLAND YTTERØY Ytterøy, the pearl of the Trondheimsfjord is an island situated just 30 minutes by ferry from the city centre of Levanger. We recommend taking your bike over on the new ferry and enjoy the lush cultural landscape. Make sure to enjoy a food break at Cafe Rampa.

Munkeby MARIAkloster 1 Munkeby Mariakloster was a cistercian monastery at Okkenhaug in Levanger – probably established by English monks in the latter half of the 12th century. Today, 800 years later, the monastery experience is being recreated by French monks of the same order. Munkeby Mariakloster produces cheese, today regarded as one of Norway’s best cheeses.

OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES Maybe you want to hike along the pilgrim route that runs through the municipality? You can enjoy food and drink and stay overnight along the way .

Verdal municipality is widely known for its culture and history. The famous battle at Stiklestad in 1030 is one of the history’s most significant battles, with far reaching consequences right up to modern Norwegian society.

Every year, about 20 000 people come to watch a dramatic presentation of the events that led up to the battle on 29th of July 1030. Stiklestad church is, true to tradition, built exactly on the place where King Olav fell, and has been a meeting place ever since it was built in the 12th century. Stiklestad became an important pilgrim destination in the middle ages, and these days the numbers of pilgrims coming to Stiklestad are increasing. Accommodation facilities for both pilgrims and other guests have developed through the opening

More than 300 square kilometres of Verdal are located within the boundaries of the Blåfjella-Skjækerfjella National Park. There are many opportunities for enjoying the great outdoors, including hunting and fishing in large parts of the municipality. Verdal River is one of the region’s best salmon rivers. Kværner Verdal is a cornerstone in the industrial history of Verdal and one of the biggest employers in the area. The current establishment of a wind power components

business in the Ørin industrial park is creating a lot of excitement. On the other side of the river lies an intimate and pleasant city centre. Combine luch with a walk in the city, and you will experience small unique shops with clothes, art and interior. EVENTS ARE AN IMPORTANT RESOURCE “Olsokdagene” – The Saint Olav Festival at Stiklestad at the end of July each year, has become one of Norway’s largest cultural festivals. The Vømmøl festival at the end of May attracts around 10,000 visitors. The festival fills Verdal with crowds in a party mood who attend events and concerts playing music by Hans Rotmo. The fair Verdals Martnan also leaves its mark on the town.

from motor way E6, east along road Fv72 BIRD - WATCHING A network of bird towers and photohides have been built at Tronestangen and Leksdalsvatnet. The bird towers are built in the vicinity of known bird-habitatas with high diversity. The towers and photography hides are near public roads and have parking facilities. The birdwatching tower at lake Lekdalsvatnet will have facilities for wheelchair users. The second tower in Verdal can be reached by following the river walk Elvepromenaden towards Trones, where over 204 species of birds have been observed.

THE VErdal FORTIFICATIONS The fortifications were built between 1907 and 1911 as a defence against attacks from the east. Both Russia and Sweden were regarded as possible enemies of Norway following the dissolution of the union of Norway and Sweden in 1905. Fortunately the fortifications were never involved in any wartime action and in 1936 they were closed down by the Norwegian Army. The galleries have been restored and opened up to the public. The fortifications are located 25 km

Inderøy Municipality

ROEL

Inderøy has one of Norway’s most beautiful cultural landscapes, which together with the sea and special light at Inderøy, has inspired artists and authors for hundreds of years. Inderøy stretches from the E6 motorway over the fertile peninsula in the Trondheimsfjord via the strait of Skarnsundet to Mosvik on the Fosen Peninsula.

The municipal centre, Straumen, gained its name from one of the strongest tidal currents in the country – in the narrow neck of water between the Trondheim and Borgen fjords. Klokkarstu, an old red-painted building from the 1700s, is centrally located in Straumen between the Nils Aas Art studio, the Internet Café E@ and Jostu’s Candle Foundry. The old Rødbrygga also tells its story to the restaurant guests.

Prior to 2012 Inderøy and Mosvik were separate municipalities, but following a dynamic and good process they have now merged into one municipality. There are strong agricultural, forestry and cultural traditions here.

Facilities in the village of Mosvik include Mosvik Brygge, hair dresser and a grocery store.

46


The rich soil and high skies above Inderøy provide excellent produce for the small scale food farmers. Inderøysodd which is produced in Straumen, is a popular variation of the traditional Trønder dish. DEN GYLDNE OMVEI / THE GOLDEN ROAD The stretch of road known as The Golden Road takes you through beautiful cultural landscape along county road Fv761 (with side roads) in Inderøy municipality, and has a multitude of interesting sites with many family activities. Locally produced food, special places to stay and dine, local artists, exhibitions and attractions are among the experiences on The Golden Route. www.dgo.no

THE Muustrø park 4 The Muustrø Park is an idyllic place in the municipal centre of Straumen. Here you can use all your senses as you wander along the path. Large and small sculptures by Nils Aas and a mill are some of the attractions. Ringstu is among Inderøy’s oldest preserved buildings, and stands in the middle of the park. At the mouth of the river ”Grana” you can stroll over the Muusbrua bridge from 1816 – to the sound of the sculpture ‘Flounder’ by Nils Aas. www.flyndresang.no

Skarnsund brIDGE 3 Skarnsund bridge connects Mosvik at Fosen-peninsula to Inderøy. This is one of the world’s longest cable-stayed bridges, where the characteristic red cables reach into the sky like a gigantic harp. Under the bridge, in Skarnsundet Strait, you will find a favourite diving and fishing area. The orange sea plants give the impression of more tropical waters.

Steinkjer Municipality

STEINKJER CITY CENTRE

Steinkjer, the county capital, is situated on the shores of the Beitstadfjord, the innermost arm of the Trondheimsfjord. Craftsmen and tradesmen settled in the area around Steinkjer farm. The traditional boat “Jekt” and garrison environment at Sannan brought new impulses and increased activity to Steinkjer, which gained city status in 1857. The wooden buildings built in the Empire style were destroyed in the town fire of 1900, replaced by beautiful towers and spires characteristic of the Art nouveau style. Steinkjer was bombed in April 1940. The reconstruction commenced in 1941 and was mostly completed by 1960.

THE RECONSTRUCTED TOWN The reconstructed town was planned under the leadership of Professor Sverre Pedersen. His three principles are easily visible in the townscape: Kongens gate, the main street, is a Baroque view axis with the fire station tower and Oftenåsen as central motifs. STEINKJER CHURCH 7 Jakob Weidemann is considered one of the most important artists in Norwegian modernism of the 1950s, and he was one of the forerunners of abstract art in Norway for the 10 years following World War II. Steinkjer Church, also known as Weidemann’s Cathedral, is his masterpiece and towers high with its

38 m freestanding clock tower. HISTORICAL STEINKJER 8 – BØLA, BARDAL, EGGE There are many rock carvings in the Bøla area, dating from the Stone Age. The best known of these are the 6000-year-old “Bøla reindeer” and the “Bøla man” on skis. You will also find bear and birds figures, a Stone Age settlement and a nice nature trail with a wonderful view of the lake Snåsavatnet. www.bolarein.no 9 At the Bardal field, there are more than 400 rock carvings dating from the Neolithic era and Bronze Age. Motifs here include humans, animals and boats etc. The figures are best viewed when the sun is low. Easily accessible and is situated near the farm Bardal.

Ogndalsfjella mountains. Along the way, enjoy the view of the beautiful Skjækra mountains. OFTENÅSEN Behold the the beautiful views and nature on top of Oftenåsen, where the world’s largest garden chair is located. THE LABYRINTH TRIFOLIUM Challenge your sense of direction in Steinkjer’s labyrinth. Shaped like a clover, the municipa flower - hence the name. 1,3 km long. Free entrance. THE CITY BEACH (BYSTRANDA) Enjoy palm trees and a sandy beach in Steinkjer’s vibrant centre, while the kids play on the water trampoline.

The Egge area has a long history as a chieftains’ seat, and several burial mounds and burial cairns are easily accessible. Egge Museum is an open air museum and arranges the Viking Festival every 2. year - in 2017: 7.-9. July OLAV BREEN

Snåsa is a bilingual municipality where the Sami language and culture is very much alive. The beautiful cultural landscape is surrounded by summer mountain farms. Majestic wilderness areasan eldorado for outdoor recreation, hunting and fishing.

means of transport that connected Snåsa with the rest of the region. The current centre was developed near the railway station, which opened in 1926. Snåsa is a typical rural municipality. Agriculture and forestry are the main industries, but in recent years the number of industrial jobs has grown.

The E6 motorway and railway line both go through the municipality, and Snåsa is a 45-minute drive from Steinkjer and around one hour from Namsos.

SOUTH SAMI CULTURE Snåsa is the centre of the South Sami culture, and has several Sami institutions, a kindergarten, school and dormitory for South Sami children. Saemien Sijte, a South Sami Museum and Cultural Centre, is open year-round and is well worth a visit.

In the north end of lake Snåsavatnet is the old municipal centre Viosen, a beautiful inland “port town” with distinctive architecture. It was established when the steam ship was the

SUMMER MOUNTAIN FARMS Snåsa has around 15 active summer mountain farms where the cows graze on fresh herb-rich grass that gives the milk and mountain farm products special qualities. The atmosphere is special and it is a great place to enjoy a local meal. Not far from Saemien Sijte and Snåsa Church is the childhood home of the “Snåsa Man”, Joralf Gjerstad. It has been restored to its former glory and looks just as it did throughout Gjerstad’s childhood. Pay a visit to the house and see the photos and honours Joralf and Signe have received. OUTDOOR ACTIVITIES Blåfjella-Skjækerfjella National Park forms a large part of the municipality, and Snåsa is a national park municipality. If you like hiking to genuine mountain farms, in deep forests, open mountain areas and go on hunting and fishing trips, then Blåfjella-Skjækerfjella National Park is worth exploring.

char fishing and a great place to paddle a kayak or canoe. The municipality also has 10 marked cycle routes. Visit the tourist information office in Snåsa or Steinkjer for a brochure over cycle routes. The mountain roads in Snåsa are the starting point for marked trails to the mountain farms of Gjefsjøen, Holden, Gaundalen and Gressamoen. BERGÅSEN Bergsåsen, right near the town centre, and Finsåsmarka both have rich occurrences of orchids. Snåsa has chosen the “lady’s slipper” orchid as its municipal flower and it also features on the municipal coat of arms. There is a marked nature trail in Bergsåsen starting in the town centre of Snåsa.

Snåsa’s main lake, Snåsavatnet, is an excellent spot for trout and
