Birdwatching in Frosta and Tautra
Frosta and Tautra in Trondheimsfjorden is located just over an hour’s drive from Trondheim. If you have never visited this place before, we would recommend that you schedule for it now. This area is one of Norway’s most important and best birding locations. Frosta is reached by turning into state road 753 by Vordalen, located north of Stjørdal along the main road E6. To get out to the island Tautra from Frosta, you have to cross a 2.5 kilometres long road breakwater. The island is small and flat, the surface area is about 1.5 square kilometres, and the island’s highest point reaches 26 metres above sea level. Between Frosta and Tautra, there are usually many birds that can be watched from various places on the mainland, the breakwater, or the island itself.
