Trip Planner: Europe / Norway / Central Norway / Nord-Trondelag / Stjordal Municipality / Stjordal / Forbordsfjellet
Forbordsfjellet is a mountain in the municipality of Stjørdal in Trøndelag county, Norway. The 590-metre (1,940 ft) tall mountain lies directly to the north of Trondheim Airport, Værnes and the town of Stjørdalshalsen and about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) northeast of the village of Skatval. There is a toll road to the summit from European route E6 near Skatval Church.PutForbordsfjellet into our Stjordal day trip planning website and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.
Forbordsfjellet is also used for paragliding. Fram IL organizes a 4.8 km long backhill race that starts at Skatval church and has a finish at the top of the mountain. Many tourists and residents come to the top to look at the views of Nedre Stjørdalen, Åsenfjorden and towards Trondheim.
The name comes from the Forbord hamlet located west of the mountain, and the name Forbord supposedly means "at the foot of the mountain". Thus, the name Forbordsfjellet can, oddly enough, be translated into "at the foot of the mountain-mountain". The solution to this logical problem may be that the hamlet at the foot of the mountain may have been named Forbord first, but when the locals forgot the name of the name, the mountain was given the name Forbordsfjellet. There are no other known names on the mountain.
A popular destination for hiking is Svartkamhytta.
Amazing views and very easy to get to from the airport. Very worth the time to see Stjørdal from a different perspective. The ways the hay fields and farmlands contrast against the dense forests is a spectacular sight one must see for themselves. __________________________________________________ Forbordsfjellet is a mountain in the municipality of Stjørdal in Nord-Trøndelag county, Norway.
