Birdwatching at Lømsen and Snåsavatnet
Just north of Steinkjer, you will find Lømsen and Snåsavatnet, two interesting waters very easy to access from the main road E6. By taking a side trip along state road 763, you can also visit Fossemvatnet when you are in the area. Around these waters, the activity reaches its peak during the warmer part of the year. However, you can find many Whooper Swans and ducks in Snåsavatnet in the winter, assuming that it is not too frozen.
