Rorvik is a little port village in the municipality of Vikna in Norway, in Nord-Trondelag County. The village is also an important administrative hub of the municipality. It is located on the eastern side of the Vikna archipelago on Inner-Vikna Island. It is a roughly 430-acre town, and it has a population of 3,000 or so. The population density is almost 1,700 people per sq. mi. It is not unusual to have so few people in a Norwegian village.
There are a number of museums in Rorvik, and there is a hotel as well. One of the major employers is Telenor Mobil, and fish farming, fishing, and public service are important sources of economic activity as well. Rorvik is the site of the Rorvik Church and the Ytre Namdal Upper Secondary School.
The town is situated in the northwestern part of the county in central Norway, about 120 miles north of Trondheim. Rorvik is at the eastern edge of the archipelago of Vikna. It is located on the Inner-Vikna island at the western shore of the strait of Naeroysundet. It faces out to the mainland on the eastern shore of that strait. It has a maritime climate, and there are a number of private gardens that have apple and plum trees, even though it is in such a cold part of the world. The gardens are unusual for that latitude.
The area was settled very early on, and there are a number of prehistoric burial mounds in the area. There are rocky and jagged cliffs and slopes on the islands, but there are some amazingly lush lowland fields too. Fishing and farming are traditional occupations in the area, and they still are to a certain degree. In the last several years, there has been an influx of people from other parts of the archipelago into Rorvik.
Rorvik is another area of Norway with some beautiful scenery. Whether you like the rocky slopes or the green lowland areas, Rorvik has a little something for everyone. Dining in the area is a real luxury. Even though it’s just home cooking for the most part, the fresh local produce and fish make every meal a delightful experience. Make sure that you get enough of the tasty local fare when you’re in the area. You don’t want to miss out on some of the best homemade cuisine in all of Norway in this little fishing and farming locale.
