Experiences in Ørland:  

Marine areas.

Ørland is surrounded by sea on three sides. Here you can make exciting boating excursions or cruises to small islets and inlets. Here are always opportunities of catching a great many kinds of fish. To see the landscape from the seaside is special and watching the sunset on a calm summer night is an experience you can hardly forget.

Fishing.

The strong tidal flow in and out the fjords makes this region one of the best areas  for fishing in Middle Norway. The type of fish to be caught vary with the season. In spring the catch is mostly small cod, haddock, coalfish and torsk. In July the mackerel arrives and a month or two later the herring comes. Bigger specimen of cod, coalfish and the spiked dogfish are in evidence at the same time. In shallow waters you will get plaice and other kinds of flatfish most of the year.
