Jacuzzi / sauna:

If you feel like a refreshing dip in one of the cleanest rivers during your stay, we recommend Tømmeråsfossen in Sanddøla, just four kilometers from Namsentunet. You can sunbathe on the rocks while the kids take a dip in either “Nerhøla” or “Øverhøla”. After a few days of sun the water temperature is good enough for true bathers.
There are also waterfalls and rapids with natural slides in the rock – and a nice beach with gravel that is close by. Diving to the depths of Sanddøla can be lucky to see the salmon swim by. For locals are Tømmeråsfossen always been associated with salmon and swimming, a lovely place for both people, and animals!
The other swimming area is also Sanddøla, but only a few hundred meters below Tømmeråsfossen.
Also Langnes Family Camp, next to Grong High School and Sports Centre in Grong, is a long fine sand beach.
