A holiday to Grong could provide you with everything you want from a Norwegian experience.
A holiday in Grong could provide you and your travel companions with wonderful memories for life. Skiing facilities, salmon fishing, vast unspoiled areas of nature and a vital relationship with history mean that Grong is a vibrant Mecca for those who seek experiences on their holidays.
Namdalen is one of the major attractions in Nord-Trøndelag. The valley surrounds the River Namsen and the local salmon fishing is known far beyond the borders of Norway. At Fiskumfoss you will find Namsen Salmon Aquarium which offers plenty of fun and educational activities. A visit would be enjoyable for anyone with an interest in the life of the salmon.
Even though the Namsen is considered one of the country's most magnificent destinations for sports fishing, there are also plenty of other great fishing opportunities in the municipality. In particular, the upland a few miles away from the main road, the E6, offers plenty of interesting outdoor opportunities.
If you would rather bring skis than fishing gear, you will enjoy the fantastic facilities at Grong Ski Centre! Avid skiers make their way here during the winter season for the numerous downhill slopes as well as the vast selection of carefully prepared cross-country trails in the forest.
If you are staying in Grong for a while or perhaps visiting outside of the skiing season there will be plenty of other things to do in this beautiful municipality. The rural museum, Grong Bygdemuseum, manages several properties, some of which are situated by the Bergsmolåna farm and furnished as they would have been nearly 200 years ago. The Circular Yard at Værem is a fascinating prehistoric monument, where you can see burial mounds from the Iron Age.
With history so close at hand and buckets of fun and exciting outdoor activities, the entire family is sure to find something to enjoy here. The accommodation options suggest that this is a village with a taste for quality rather than quantity.
