NamsosNorway

Salmon fishing, Trønder rock and a water park in the mountains surrounded by grand scenery are among the attractions of Namsos.

Surrounded by magnificent mountains along the Nord-Trøndelag coast, Namsos can be found at the heart of Namsenfjorden. Keen anglers may be tempted to visit the Namsen River, which runs through several municipalities and is a popular spot for salmon fishers. Fishermen travel here from all of Europe. When visiting Namsos, you should also visit the mountains in the area, such as Bjørumsklumpen, or Klompen, situated 374 feet above sea level and a popular destination with superb views across Namsfjorden.

Make sure to add Oasen svømme- og miljøsenter waterpark to the programme when planning your visit, especially if you are travelling with your family. The facility has been developed inside a cavern situated inside the mountain and is the largest of its kind in Northern Europe. If you are interested in art, you may wish to visit the gallery at Namsos Kulturhus, or head out of the centre to visit the district museum, Namdalsmuseet, with its old buildings, objects and a Sami department.

Historically, the timber industry has been crucial to Namsos and a museum, Norsk Sagbrukmuseum, was established in 1991 in one of the old timber mills. It is a part of the Museet Midt museum, which has several departments.

If you love music, rock in particular, you will find a holiday in Namsos will be the right choice for you. The national resource centre Rock City trains people in the music scene and also acts as a centre for Trønder rock. Here you will be taken through an exciting musical history lesson.

Flying to Namsos allows you a great choice of routes if travelling from the UK via Trondheim Airport, Værnes. From here you can travel to many other places in Norway and Europe. You could also take the train and enjoy the beautiful scenery along the Nordland Line.

Namsos has something for everyone. If you are a hardcore rock fan, interested in history or prefer to enjoy nature with a fishing rod in your hand, you will have found the right place.
