Freecamp at a large recreational area next to the road. Amazing view. Several other freecamp sites in the area.

Tjøtta is mentioned in the Heimskringla many times; this was the home of Hárek of Tjøtta, one of the leaders of the peasant army which killed Olav Haraldsson at the Battle of Stiklestad. There is archeological evidence of Iron Age agriculture in the area- Tjøtta gard, the largest medieval farm in Northern Norway, is also located in Tjøtta.

From 1862 until 1965, the village of Tjøtta was the administrative centre of the old municipality of Tjøtta.

Haldammen

Old damsystem buildt for floating of timber.

Haldammen is an old listed damsystem for timber floating. There has been activity here since the first water wheel and a mill was built in the 1600s. In 1804 the first dam was completed and the floating was continued until 1981.

Today you can see some old huts and the dam itself. Some of the huts is open to the public to use for accommodation and bonfires. Space for 2 campers for overnight stay in the free parking lot. You have to pay a small access-fee to use the gravel roads for access into this site.

Every year, in early June, “Haldamsdagene” is arranged. While these are going on, old traditions of craftsmanship is shown and visitors can try out different old craftmanships. During these days timber floating is also demonstrated, and the timberslip over the Haldamstupet takes place when the water in the dam is released.

Bøsanden

Freecamping at the parking area for the recreational area of Bøsanden - One of the natural wonders of northern Norway.

The road down to this freecamp is narrow and with relatively deep wheel tracks. Not suitable for the largest motorhomes. It is not allowed with camping at the parking, but there are a lot of opportunities in the grassy area around the parking itself.  On days of warm and sunny weather, this is a popular spot for bathing and hiking. This is also a perfect place to enjoy the sunset and possibly the midnight sun.

Located at the western side of Engeløya (translates to: Angel island). See also the sidebar under “More Info” for link to other spetacular places in this part of Norway.

Kongsodden

Large area for freecamping at the shores of "Femunden".

This is a popular spot for starting a canoeing or fishing expedition into the wilderness at “Femundsmarka National Park”.

Formed in 1971 to protect the lake, forests, marshes and mountain peaks of the area around Femunden. This 573-sq-km park is often overlooked by foreign tourists – despite the fact that it’s been named one of the three best hiking areas in Norway.

The area, situated between the border with Sweeden and the cities of Trysil and Røros, has 67 mountain peaks and two national parks, Femundsmarka and Gutulia. Hiking, canoeing and cycling hardly become more family-friendly than here.

Flyfishing in the rivers is popular. In addition, there are more than 900 beatiful waters and Norway’s third biggest lake “Femunden”, trafficked by the ferry M/S Fæmund II built as early as 1904. Here ant in other waters you can expect fish species like trout, char, grayling, whitefish, perch and pike.

Aunvatnet

Gravel freecamp site, withdrawn from the road at Aunvatnet. Picnic tables and garbage disposal.

The site are located at the island of Føya, which lies north of the island of Hitra, as well several thousand other small islands surrounding the island of Frøya. The main island of Frøya is connected to the neighboring island of Hitra (and ultimately the mainland of Norway) by the Frøya Tunnel.

In Norse mythology, Freyja (Frøya) is a goddess associated with war, death, love, sex, beauty, fertility, gold, and sorcery. Freyja is the owner of the necklace Brislingamen, rides a chariot pulled by two cats, is accompanied by the boar Hildisvini, and possesses a cloak of falcon feathers.

The island of Frøya offers great fishing opportunities – whether you like deep sea fishing or inland fishing. Rent a boat and fishing gear and join local fishing guides out on the open sea who know where the big fish bite.

With its wide range of local food manufacturers and high-quality restaurants, Trøndelag can rightfully be called a culinary region. If you want to please your tastebuds, we suggest you visit some of the various shops selling local produce from farmers and small-scale producers.

There are several other opportunities to stay overnight in the area, check out freecamp at 63.6938, 8.5885 and also the gravel site at a small harbor at 63.7246, 8.6182
