|The peninsula "Fosen" is located northwest from Trondheim
"A little Norway" is the usual description of the peninsula Fosen Here you can find, fresh air, a lot of untouched Nature, wide of mountains, woods and seas. The mountains are as the citizens: unshakable (steadfest) and hospitable. The sea can be smooth and seductive, but also wild and impressing.
The citizens says: If you don´t like the weather just wait some minutes, it will change fast.
|Fosen has everything- excluding motorways, traffic jams and stress.|
|Recently Råkvåg is nominated as the loveliest city on Fosen but also as the loveliest city in "Sør-Trøndelag". (The pearl of Fosen) The distance from Trondheim to Råkvåg is just 70 km + ferry from Flakk-Rørvik (25 minutes) The remarkable harbour from Råkvåg is still a monument of the era where the herring fishing the city stamped. This is the biggest congregation of houses which are built of wood elements and stands in the water. The building acted the fishing industry as drying and storage rooms. They are good conserved and under protection. Among other things there are art exhibition, Art museum, and café.|
|The veteran sailboats still goes out to the islands. Some
Tavern, the small boat harbour and a flea market which is located in an
old shop are the reason why Råkvåg is an interesting goal for vacation.
The possibility of fishing is still very good. It is possible to fish in the fjord, in some lakes and in two salmon rivers. The Nordelva (salmon between 1 and 6 kilo) runs through a fantastic nature area. Here it is possible to visit a wonderful beach and some beautiful resorts to the heathland east from Råkvåg. Not far away the well known "Skauga" River flows through the land.
