The old trading post Abelvær is known from written sources in the early 17th century, but the farm can be traced even further back in history. Abelvær was part of the property “Ramstad”, known as “Rafnista” in Egils saga. One of the earliest landmembers in Iceland, Kjetil Høngur, came from Rafnista, according to the  saga.

Abelvær is a fishing village and trading center, furthest south in Nærøy municipality in Trøndelag, at the end of the peninsula which extends southwest from the mainland and out into Folda. Starting  in 1802 Abelvær was built around the Brandtzæg family businesses with canning factory, trade, dairy, bakery and more.  Abelvær farm is now operated as a lodging and accommodation establishment.

The “Styrmanden” cafeteria offers coffee, cakes and “snacks”, but can serve up to full lunch or dinner for up to 20 people on order.

Avløysinga – Lofoten

Great freecamp at Røssøystraumen bridge. Opportunities for great fishing in the tidal currents.

Røssøystraumen is a narrow sound or channel in Flakstad municipality in Nordland that runs between Moskenesøya on the west side and Torvøya on the east side. The sound is about 850 meters long and runs from Rambergvika on the north side to Hovdanvika on the south side. Together with Sundstraumen further south, it is part of a passage between the Norwegian Sea and the Vestfjord. Maximum depth is 9 meters.

The nearest village is Fredvang. The village is located on the island of Moskenesøya and is fairly isolated with the Fredvang Bridges being the only road connection to the rest of Norway.

Large and quiet area by the marina which is well suited for freecamping.

The area is quiet and picnic tables are placed around to welcome visitors.

In July, the boat «Snorre» have guided tours on Sirdalsvatnet every Wednesday. Along the tour, tales and stories related to the places you pass are told. Among other things, you get to hear the story of when Queen Astrid hid at Holmen with her son, Olav Tryggvason. The tours run from Tonstad to Haughom, and strawberries and coffee are served. As a finish the tour takes a vintage bus to Øksendal before returning to Tonstad.
