Yesterday we went on a day trip to the small island of Stokkøya, which is situated by and connected to the Fosen peninsula. It is about 2,5 hours drive (including a ferry) from Trondheim. It was a fantastic day with temperatures above 30 degrees celsius and not a cloud in the sky. I can tell you that these kind of temperatures are quite rare in this region. And in Trondheim it was the warmest day since 1945… The beach at Hosnasand on Stokkøya is one of the best beaches, if not the best beach in the mid part of Norway. It is well known in Norway, and because of a sea center and a beach bar that has been built up there it has also been featured in magazines and newspapers in other parts of the world as well.
map As you can see: there’s nothing but the ocean (the cold, cold, ocean) beyond Stokkøya.
From the Guardian about beaches to go to
The Culture Trip: about new architecture in Norway, naming Stokkøya sjøsenter. (well worth reading for all the other amazing new architecture too)
Here are a few shots from yesterday. Not all that happy about my shots this time, and the beach was quite crowded too. And because of the heat everything was a bit hazy…
