Canoeing in Ogna

Canoeing down the river Ogna offers a great experience and beautiful scenery for families and friends. Steinkjer Kommuneskoger have several canoes for rent. Starting point is Hyllbrua and at a leisurely pace it takes about 4 hours to the endpoint Støa (10 km). See here for more information about canoeing in Ogna and how to book the canoes. 

Hiking and nature experiences

Steinkjer kommuneskoger are also an active part when it comes to organising trips in and around Norway’s geographic midpoint and Blåfjella-Skjækerfjella National Park.

Combining a trip to the Norwegian geographic midpoint with accommodation in one of the rental cabins (some also with access to boat and free yarn right) allows for multi-day wilderness adventures in the Trøndersk nature.

For the passionate hunter, the Kommunseskogens areas are no less than a paradise. Big game hunting for elk is extremely popular and our hunting area is rented out by four-year periods by drawing lots. Hunting licenses for Roe deer and small game hunting (willow grouse, willow ptarmigan, Rock ptgarmigan, grouse and hare) are also available for the Steinkjer Kommuneskoger’s areas. Can be bought on Contact Steinkjer Kommuneskoger for more information.
