At the peak of the Norwegian summer, hundreds of people gather in the small village of Surnadal to compete in the salmon fishing event Norsk Laksefestival. Surrounded by fjords, mountains, deep valleys and forests, Surnadal makes the ideal place for fishing and exploring the wild Norwegian nature. Visitors without a fishing rod can enjoy music, taste some delicious food in the marketplace, take part in various activities for both children and adults, or simply savour the trickling sounds of river Surna during the bright summer evenings.
