Expectations. That’s what it’s all about. Your next big catch awaits you in Namdalen: in a quiet mountain lake, in the river that runs slowly towards the fjord, in the ocean beyond. You will find all of this in Namdalen. Just one more cast … Namdalen is named after one of most excellent salmon rivers, the Namsen. Deep-sea and freshwater fishing have formed the basis of human settlement and trade in Namdalen for thousands of years. Today, Namdalen is the preferred destination for sport fishermen at all levels.

Mountain fishing in Børgefjell National Park – the Realm of the Mountain Trout Børgefjell is the realm of the mountain trout. Here, you can wander among innumerable mountain lakes and tarns in search of the trout fisherman’s dream. Simskardvatnet and Orvatnet are among the most significant fishing lakes here, and the sources of the rivers Namsen and Vefsn are also found within the national park. The Børgefjellkortet permit gives you the right to fish with a rod all over the national park and in the Austre Tiplingen landscape conservation area. With only a few exceptions, the national park has not been very well adapted for overnight accommodation in cabins. Børgefjell is therefore more suitable for experienced mountain people who find their own overnight accommodations.

Lierne National Park – fantastic mountain fishing The low-lying mountain areas of Lierne National Park are renowned for their excellent fishing. Innumerable first rate fishing lakes and miles of river await you here. In most of the mountain lakes there are trout and in some of them also charr. Many of the fishing lakes are easily accessible, and you can be sure to avoid the crowds here. In Lierne, there are, in fact, more lakes than people... The Nordli permit (Nordlikortet) covers parts of the national park and provides access to attractive fishing in lakes, tarns and rivers. At several spots in the national park cabins are available for rent from the mountain authority (Lierne Fjellstyret). The mountain authority also rents out boats on several of the lakes.

the Blåfjella and Skjækerfjella Mountains – mountain fishing in spectacular surroundings The Blåfjella and Skjækerfjella National Park is one of the biggest national parks in the country, consisting of a comprehensive landscape including everything from exciting primeval forests to high, untamed mountains. In this vast Eldorado, you can easily wander undisturbed for days on end. Find one of the many mountain lakes, and you will soon find trout and charr that are eager to bite.

Pike Fishing in Lierne – a varied menu With no less than six species of fish “on the menu”, Kvesjøen Lake in Lierne is a well-preserved secret among impassioned anglers in Scandinavia. Here, you can fish lake charr, charr, trout, grayling, burbot and pike. Those who make the trip to Kvesjøen every year can expect some magnificent specimens among their catch, together with the possibility of record-breaking fish turning up on their hooks. And not to mention a good fisherman’s tale, of course – you should have seen the one that got away …

Fiskeveien, the Fishing Route: Krokom – Namsos, from Mountain to Fjord Fiskeveien is an idyllic route between Krokom in Sweden and Namsos in Norway. It offers endless nature experiences, hunting and fishing. It runs along scenic mountain lakes and world famous salmon rivers, from forest village and wilderness in Krokom and Lierne, via luxuriant valleys in Grong and Overhalla, to the magnificent Atlantic coast of Namsos. You can go fishing by boat or on land, using nets or a rod, in still waters or roaring rapids. Overnight accommodations are equally as varied and include great scope for camping, motor homes and caravans, cosy mountain cabins and inviting hotels offering full board.

Trout Fishing in Namsskogan – a wealth of opportunity Uppermost in Namdalen, the outdoor Eldorado of Namsskogan awaits you. With over 800 lakes and tarns and 35 rivers, the area is a Mecca for impassioned anglers, and an ideal starting point for beginners and families with young children. The Namsskogankortet permit gives you access to the whole lot. The source of the Namsen, the Queen of Rivers, is found in the borough. In this part of the river there is an excellent stock of trout, and the unique local species of salmon, namsblanken, can also be found there. Most of this varied area is managed by the Namsskogan Fjellstyre mountain authority. You will find no less than 17 of their inviting cabins round about in the mountains, in addition to a number of rowing boats.

Salmon Fishing in the River Namsen – the Queen of Rivers The Namsen, Queen of Rivers, emerges from Store Namsvatnet lake in the borough of Røyrvik, before meandering 229 kilometres through majestic and magnificent countryside to its estuary in Namsos. Among enthusiasts at home and abroad, the Namsen is one of the country’s most coveted salmon rivers. Fishing from boats and from the banks of the river are long-standing traditions, and landowners along the river offer a wide range of facilities for both passionate anglers and those anticipating their first cast. Along the river you will find an increasing number of places offering you a “complete package” including high standard overnight accommodations, mouth-watering culinary experiences, access to exclusive salmon spots and organized activities, and nature and culture experiences. And should you wish to feel the excitement of the Namsen, you can also purchase reasonably priced fishing permits. The starting signal for salmon fishing in the Namsen goes off on 1 June. From 5-8 August, the Namsen Salmon Festival will be arranged, and the programme includes a fishing competition, a triathlon and concerts.

Namsen Salmon Aquarium – close contact with big salmon Looking for an authoritative introduction to wild salmon and salmon fishing in the Namsen? Then you should pay a visit to the Namsen Salmon Aquarium, just off the E6 in the borough of Grong. With the mighty Fiskumfossen Falls as nextdoor neighbour, you can visit the salmon studio where you will see live salmon on their way up the salmon ladder. And there are specially adapted fishing spots and nature and culture trails in the near vicinity, making the Namsen Salmon Aquarium the perfect starting point for salmon adventures in Namdal. The salmon buffet served in the restaurant is a highlight in its own right. Salmon in all varieties make your meal a delicious culinary experience. Inside the museum you can learn more about the history of salmon fishing, and visit a comprehensive exhibition of historical fishing tackle.

Trout Fishing in Grong – one permit, many possibilities The Grongkortet permit allows you access to freshwater fishing in practically the whole of the borough of Grong. Within the municipal borders you will find over 500 fishing lakes and a number of rivers of varying sizes. The Grongkortet permit includes all private landowners associations, the municipal woods, and the Nordre Bangsjøen and Brennmoen areas of state-owned common land. In addition to fishing with rods, otter boards and nets are also allowed in some of the lakes. The permit does not apply to the salmon inhabited parts of the Namsen, Sanddøla and Nesåa (see “Salmon Fishing in the Namsen”). The borough of Grong offers unusually varied natural surroundings, including wild mountains, extensive mountain plains and luxuriant river valleys. With just one permit, you have access to the whole lot.

Salmon Fishing in the River Sanddøla IN the Princess of the Namsen Watercourse Grong town centre, two of the country’s finest salmon rivers converge. The Namsen is the best known of the two, but more and more people are becoming aware of the tributary called Sanddøla. The salmon-populated part of the Sanddøla is particularly popular for fishing from the banks. In the lower parts of the river you will also find two mighty waterfalls – the Formofossen and the Tømmeråsfossen, offering exciting and challenging fishing spots. The Sanddøla offers fishing in peace and quiet. Spend some time exploring the river and you will soon discover exciting rapids, pools and deep channels that are not so easy to notice at first glance. This is where the fish bite …

Salmon Fishing in the Bjøra – idyllic surroundings The Bjøra is a classic salmon river meandering slowly past large farms and delightful cultural landscapes, before merging with the Namsen. This river is the home of the biggest salmon in the Namsenvassdraget watercourse, and is characterized by enthusiasts as one of Norway’s decidedly finest salmon rivers. The river offers a variety of opportunities for fishing, both from the banks or from boats. Many of the anglers who travel to the Børja every year prefer one or two handed fly rods, but it is also possible to fish with lures or worms. The Bjøra is also known for its excellent sea trout fishing.

Salmon Fishing in the Høylandsvassdraget Watercourse – varied fishing Høylandet offers more than revue performances and craziness. The area can also boast of a veritable bouquet of first-rate salmon rivers. The Høylandsvassdraget watercourse includes the rivers Søråa, Eida, Flakken and Flåttelva. The Søråa is the longest of the rivers in the Høylandsvassdraget watercourse, with a salmon populated stretch of about 20 kilometres. Large parts of the river run slowly through the local, well-groomed cultural landscape. For the most part the fishing takes place from the banks. The Søråa is a great river for fly fishing, especially for one-handed fly rods. The average salmon in the Søråa weighs between four and five kilos. The Eida includes a salmon populated stretch of about 1 kilometre. This is a very swift river where most people fish with lures or flies from the banks. You can expect salmon weighing between four and five kilos here, too.

river and Fjord Fishing in Fantastic Salen – mountain and ocean Due to active and systematic management in recent years, the Salen area today offers some exciting challenges for anglers. You can try your hand at fishing big mountain trout in the many mountain lakes, and there are also two salmon populated rivers in the area, the Salsvassdraget and the Opløelva, which are popular among anglers. The latter runs through the town of Salsbruket, and is known for the considerable amount of salmon that drift in, providing exciting experiences for keen fishermen. The lower part of the river has been adapted for angling by way of sills which create fish pools and rapids. To the west, Salen borders on the Follafjord and the ocean. In other words, the surroundings are well-suited to combining freshwater fishing with fjord fishing. The company known as Utmarkscompagniet offers comprehensive fishing adventures in Salen, including overnight accommodation in several specially adapted outlying farms.

The Salmon Visitor Centre – coastal culture in three acts Want to see the coast of Namdalen with its isles and skerries and fantastic natural surroundings – while at the same time learning something new? The Norveg coastal museum and the aquaculture company SalmoNor provide an account of the history of Norwegian aquaculture and demonstrate modern coastal culture in practice. The event starts with an exhibition entitled “The Land and the Ocean Beyond” at the Norveg coastal culture centre, where you will gain insight into eleven thousand years of coastal culture, and modern aquaculture’s role as food manufacturer for discriminating palates all over the world. The subsequent boat trip on board SalmoNor’s new, speedy and comfortable vessel is an adventure in its own right, providing you with an experience of the sea and the impressive and idyllic isles and skerries of the Namdal coast. On your safe arrival at the sea farm, you will be welcomed by the keeper and will have the opportunity of going down to the cages. In this way, you will have a close encounter with life at the salmon farm and the hundreds of thousands of salmon that will be swimming around in the sea beneath you.

Nordøyan – where the land ends and the sea begins Westernmost out at sea we find the islands of Nordøyan, three islands that have been an outpost and a haven for fishermen since time immemorial. The people out there have always made a living from the natural resources that surround the islands. In harmony with nature, they have been able to provide for themselves and their families thanks to the blessings of the sea. In this listed fishing hamlet you can spend the night in authentic fishermen’s cabins (rorbu). On the Nordøyan islands, the sea and the abundant fishing grounds of the Namdal coast are just beyond the quayside. In addition to deep-sea fishing, deep-sea rafting, guided tours and a number of other activities are also available. In July and August you can catch the express passenger ferry “Foldafjord” from Namsos. On your safe arrival, a guide, a shop, some home-made fishcakes, and coffee and waffles will await you. And from the old post office, you can send postcards to friends and family stamped with the exclusive Nordøyan postmark. Nordøyan and the islands and their surrounding waters are hard to describe, they have to be experienced. You will not leave this natural gem unmoved. Far from land and folk, but close to the sea, the fish and the forces of nature.

Hasvåg – in close contact with the ocean It is not difficult to see why both passionate deep-sea fishermen and families on holiday come back to Hasvåg year after year. Life goes on here at its own leisurely pace, in a scenic and open coastal landscape. And furthermore, with the infamous Folla as next-door neighbour, you are also in close contact with the ocean. From a boat, you can try fishing for the big cod – or for halibut, saithe, redfish or any of the other delicacies that conceal themselves beneath the surface. Hasvåg Fritid rents out apartments in sheltered surroundings in the near vicinity of the quayside and the idyllic beach. At the floating jetty you will find six rental boats and a roofed over fish gutting table. Each apartment also has a lockable store room for clothing and fishing tackle at your disposal. Very convenient when the fish start to bite …

Sør-Gjæslingan – a listed holiday paradise Sør-Gjæslingan is situated far out to sea near the infamous waters of Folla. In former times it was the biggest and most important fishing station south of Lofoten. Today, the island settlement is a listed holiday paradise where you can find peace and quiet in authentic surroundings. You can do as the fishermen do, and stay in charming fishermen’s cabins. Outside, you can enjoy the character and charm of the old fishing hamlet. In addition to the fisherman’s cabins the fish racks, fish landing station, manor house, shop, fisherman’s hostel, saltery and cod-liver oil refinery have all been preserved for posterity, allowing you to explore life as it was when the Vikna fishery was the main source of income among the people on the coast of Namdalen.

inshore Fishing in Vikna – among 6000 isles At the restored trading post of Løvøen Gård, you can unwind in a maritime and historical atmosphere. With its 10 inviting apartments, Løvøen Gård is also a good starting point for adventures among Vikna’s 6000 isles, islets and skerries. This inshore Eldorado offers mighty nature experiences with its chalk white beaches, narrow straits and open waters. The archipelago is pure paradise for birdwatchers and also offers fantastic fishing. ch of the ten rental boats are equipped with modern navigational gear and echo sounders, making it easy to find the best fishing spots. You will get the best advice from the locals, who always know where the big ones bite. Cast off!

You will also find Norway’s only viable stock of arctic foxes here, together with wolverine, lynx and bears. The hunting is largely dominated by ptarmigan and small game. With its alpine terrain and at times changeable weather conditions, Børgefjell is best suited to impassioned outdoor life enthusiasts. It is no coincidence that seasoned mountaineers travel to Børgefjell in order to find the ultimate peace of mind.

Hanshelleren – a paradise for climbers So far, Flatanger has been best known for its sea eagle safaris and angling. But now, several of the world’s best climbers and mountaineers have become aware of the area, or to be more precise, of the enormous climbing wall known as Hanshelleren. Here, you will find a massive overhang which keeps the mountainside dry and free from moss at all times. Several of the world’s best climbers have already made the trip to Strøm, Flatanger, to meet the challenge from one of the toughest climbing routes in the world, a so-called 9a Route. Today, there are about 40 climbing routes of varying degrees of difficulty at Hanshelleren, and you can choose from altogether 150 bouldering and trad climbing routes in the near vicinity.

Blåfjell and Skjækerfjella National Park – the realm of contrast Welcome to one of Norway’s biggest national parks. Welcome to fantastic hiking terrain with a unique flora and fantastic hunting. Welcome to the Blåfjell and Skjækerfjella mountains. The national park is known for its abundant stocks of ptarmigan and woodland game birds. Moose may also be hunted there. The local valleys and hillsides are the domain of red deer and roe deer, and with the help of your camera lens you may also find wolverine, lynx and bears within range. The area is also ideal for birdwatchers, providing the opportunity of observing wetland birds, birds of prey and owls. Large parts of the national park consist of low-lying mountains and otherwise benign terrain, and the wide range of marked trails there make Blåfjell and Skjækerfjella an excellent starting point for family outings. In contrast to this, we find Midtiklumpen, which towers up 1,333 metres above sea level. For those interested in long walks, it is good to know that there are a number of overnight accommodations in the park.

Lierne National Park – abundant and varied Lierne National Park offers a diversity of animal and plant life in untouched surroundings – the perfect spot for eager hunters, fishermen and lovers of the outdoor life. The landscape also constitutes a fantastic exhibition of how the Ice Ages have left their mark on the area. The national park is characterized by low-lying, open mountainous areas, with the exception of the Hestkjølen mountain range, which reaches up to 1,300 metres above sea level. The varied landscape is the habitat of a number of different species of birds, particularly waders, ducks and divers. You may also observe dotterel, red-necked phalarope and long-tailed skua there. Moreover, due to its wilderness-like character, the area offers excellent conditions for species requiring sizeable territories such as wolverine, lynx and bears. There is also a wide range of cultural monuments there, bearing witness to the local Sámi heritage. The national park is also a safe bet for those who appreciate an abundance of mushrooms and berries. The area is well-suited to walking, but there are few marked trails or open cabins. However, the Lierne Fjellstyre mountain authority has cabins for rent both inside and outside the national park. The mountain authority

Leka – wild and wonderful Leka, northernmost on the coast of Namdalen, is something quite unique. You will find distinctive mountain formations here that are unlike anything else in Norway. But Norway’s national geology monument has more to offer: You will find innumerable ancient monuments here after 10,000 years of human settlement, a uniquely beautiful cultural landscape, Norway’s biggest Viking burial mound and a wealth of myths and legends.

There is also an increasing number of overnight accommodations to choose from in Leka.

fjell Geopark – spectacular and old as the hills Half a billion years ago, the serpentine and olivine deposits we now refer to as Leka were created in the form an island arc of magma just south of the Equator. The island clung on to the coast of Namdalen when Europe and America later met head on in a giant collision, and today Leka has rightfully been given the title of Norway’s national geology monument. Here, you can see the convergence of the earth’s mantle and crust better than anywhere else in the world. In addition to Leka’s yellowy-red and barren mountain formations, you will find a cultural landscape well worth a look, Norway’s biggest Viking burial mound, a wealth of myths and legends and many other reminders of 10,000 years of settlement. Trollfjell Geopark covers the world’s most beautiful strandflats in the boroughs of Leka, Brønnøy, Vevelstad, Sømna, Vega and Bindal. A wealth of nature experiences await you in Trollfjell Geopark. In addition to walks along the over 70 marked trails, through landscapes of high natural and cultural-historical value, Trollfjell Geopark has also been specially adapted for kayaking, canoeing and cycling.

The Refugee Race and Portfjell Run – nature experiences across borders Every spring the people of Nordli arrange a mass meeting for thousands of skiing enthusiasts. The cross-country event known as the Refugee Race (Flyktningerennet) is organized in memory of those who were forced to flee from Norway to Sweden during World War II. The race starts in Nordli, Norway and ends up in Gäddede, Sweden, following for the most part the route used by refugees during the War. Under the motto of “In the refugees’ footsteps for peace and freedom,” the race helps maintain the strong Swedish-Norwegian comradeship that was so important during the War Years. The Portfell Run (Portfjellløpet) takes place in June. This is a combined mountain and woodland race suitable for both competitive runners and joggers alike. The 16 kilometre long route runs through scenic surroundings from Lindal Fjällgård farm in Sweden, via mountain and woodland trails to Tunnsjø on the Norwegian side of the border

Li-Martnan Market – the genuine article At the Li-Martnan Market you can experience the original market atmosphere as it was in the days when local villagers met to exchange wares and a tall tale. Local culture together with proud handicraft and culinary traditions are at the heart of events. Furthermore, the youngsters can take part in a number of exciting and educational activities. Li-Martnan is arranged in Sørli from in July.

Pe-Torsa – complications and zaniness in Lierne The listed farm Oppgården in Kvelia sets the scene for the outdoor theatre performance and cultural festival Pe-Torsa. The plot takes place in the 1950s and revolves around Pe-Torsa, the mayor of Nordli Borough and the rather self-righteous owner and manager of Oppgården Farm. The play has been a massive box office success since the turn of the century, and every year the plot is developed by new intrigues and humorous capers. There is also considerable excitement with regard to who will be this year’s guest actor. Previously, Harald Heide-Steen jr., Elsa Lystad and Kristen Gislefoss have contributed towards fits of laughter among the audience.

Winter Games – public festivities in the snow The Winter Games in Lierne place togetherness, the joy of sports and personal development in the high seat. Every year, this sports and outdoor event attracts disabled people to exhilarating and fun days in the Mecca of winter sports, Lierne. Skiing, snowmobiling, shooting, nature trails and a bowls tournament are on the agenda. Many people consider the great banquet to be the major highlight of the event. Here, you are bound to make new acquaintances from all over the county of Nord-Trøndelag. The next Winter Games will be arranged from 15-17 April 2016.

Skjenkestova Pub in Skorovatn – an “Ale Dorado” The Skjenkestova in Skorovatn is one of Norway’s more distinctive pubs. Here, in scenic surroundings in the middle of the mountains, you will find over 500 brands of beer from all over the world. Skjenkestova also has one of the country’s best assortments of aquavit and malt whisky, and it is by no means a coincidence that people from all over the country travel to the Skjenkestova to learn more about the culture of food and drink. On the table we find a number of other delicacies from the local flora and fauna. A visit to Skjenkestova is also the perfect conclusion to your day after exploring the magnificent countryside in the Skorovasfjella mountains. There are a number of marked hiking trails in the area.

Namsskogan Family Park – close proximity to nature Namsskogan Family Park is packed with activities for young and old. You will find a good 30 different species of Nordic animals here, in spacious true to nature enclosures, including wolverine, lynx, wolves and bears. For many people, such an encounter with these large predators constitutes the memory of a lifetime. At Namsskogan Family Park you may also find yourself fascinated by the interaction between children and animals at Barnas Seter – the children’s mountain farm. Namsskogan Family Park offers a wealth of fun and excitement for everyone between the ages of 1 and 100. Bumper boats, the awesome Alpineracer roller coaster, bungee trampolining, horseback riding, gold-digging and canoeing are just some of the activities that await you a stone’s throw away from the E6. The bravest among visitors always try the Tøffingtårnet – “Tough Guy Tower”: The climb ends with a 350 metre long zipline that carries you at high speed across a lake. Don’t miss the box office hit Rebella Hex. This rock musical performance is suitable for children of all ages and is staged throughout the entire summer. There are several places where you can have a meal at Namsskogan Family Park, and arrangements have also been made for those who prefer to barbecue delicacies they have brought with them from home.

The Norwegian Revue Festival – fun in the country! In 1987 a handful of “village idiots” got together at Høylandet intent on arranging the first national revue festival in the history of Norway. Over the past 25 years the Norwegian Revue Festival has undergone a process of massive growth when it comes to participation and audience size – but the craziness, laughter, inspiration, and not least the rustic sing-along “håloinnsola”, are most certainly still intact. The next edition of this biennial festival kicks off in July 2017, including seven revue performances, a stand-up show, talks and a children’s revue. In the evenings a good, old-fashioned village dance will get your feet tapping and your spirits high. Overnight accommodation is offered at festival camp, newly mown and professionally prepared in honour of the occasion by the most excellent representatives of the local agricultural trade. Food and drink of all kinds will be available within the festival area.

Melamartnan Market – shopping in historical surroundings For almost 300 years, from 1620 to 1900, the Melamartnan was an important market in Trøndelag. Fishermen, farmers, mountain folk, merchants and peddlers came here to sell their wares, pick up their winter supplies, and not least enjoy the lively atmosphere that characterized the market. With the help of trade, historical tableaux, fun and games and music, the atmosphere of the old traditional market has been kept alive in the new version. Here, you may find a bargain at one of the many stalls offering traditional handicrafts and local fare, while the children frolic at their own children’s market, romp in the hay, or take part in the many other activities that really bring out wonderment and laughter among the youngsters. All of this makes Melamartnan a unique event that the whole family can enjoy – together.

Namsosmartnan Market – public festivities in the City of Rock Namsosmartnan combines trade, fun and powerful cultural events with a view to creating public festivities in the regional capital. In addition to the extensive market, you can enjoy theatre performances, visit exhibitions and go to concerts featuring some of our most famous and popular musicians. The fun fair is also a safe bet for all the families visiting Namsos during the market. Popular Norwegian artists will guarantee a festive atmosphere in the evenings. Here in the cradle of the Trønder Rock genre you will, of course, also experience a number of local performers who contribute towards making the Namsos of today a prominent city of culture.

Millions of or skrei – a variety of Norwegian cod sustainably fished while in its prime – congregate on the spawning grounds intent on ensuring the survival of the species.

CAR FERRIES IN NAMDALEN A number of car ferries and express boats makes the spectacular coast of Namdalen easily accessible to travelers. A ferry crossing is also an experience in itself, and a pleasant break from the drive. BEFORE DEPARTURE • Take your time. This avoids stress and contributes to safety on the road. • Show up in good time before departure. There are normally few queues, but you may have to wait for the next ferry during high season. It is not possible to pre-book ferry tickets. • You can pay for your ferry ticket by card or cash. Some ferries offer a selection of drinks, light meals and snacks. • Don’t forget your camera! UPDATED FERRY AND EXPRESS BOAT ROUTES This travel guide was printed in December 2015. Some of the routes and fares may have changed later. Departure times and fares may be subject to typological errors. We recommend that you check the updated ferry routes online before your journey. Use the QR codes to get the routes directly to your phone or tablet, or visit the web sites of the ferry operators:
