Welcome to Frosta!

Beautiful and fertile, the rural borough of Frosta reaches out into the Trondheim fjord. The community proudly carries its inheritance; a rich cultural history witnessing the central position held by Frosta throughout the centuries.

With its distinctive cultural landscape and climate, Frosta is perfect for activities including hiking, cycle touring and fjord and freshwater fishing. To study the rich bird life, visit one of the historical sights or make a stop at one of the farms offering a variety of local food, berries and vegetables can be another option.

Have a taste of Frosta

Frosta is also known as Trondheims kitchen garden due to the cultivation of a variety of vegetables and berries of high quality. Strawberries and potatoes from Frosta must surely be the worlds best!

Have a taste of the fresh local food at the restaurants or make a stop at one of the many farm shops to bring it along with you.

Visit Tautra

The island Tautra is located almost in the middle of the Trondheimsfjord, connected to the rest of Frosta by a 2.3 km causeway bridge.

Here you find the remains of the medieval Tautra Monastery that was established in 1207 and dissolved in the Protestant Reformation. The monastery was placed strategically, close to the Frostating — the central law-making institution in this region of Norway. In that context, the cistercienser monks of Tautra became a part of the nation-building in Norway.

In 2003 Tautra Mariakloster, a new Cistercian nunnery, was founded on the island.

A large part of the island and its surrounding water is designated as protected under the Ramsar Convention due to the rich bird life in the area. Tautra is considered to be one of the most important bird sites in the country.
