View from the bird watching tower on the south part of the island towards 'Store Holmen'. Far out to the right the mist is hiding the town of Trondheim. To the left a small part of the closest mainland (Frosta) is seen, and in-between the islet Øksningen mention earlier is discernible. It's early spring and the snow has just gone, but here is still ice on the pond Sjødammen to the left. This part of the island is nice for hiking, sunning and birdwatching (parking e.g. at the cemetery). Hiking in the nature reserve (see map on top of the main page) is prohibited during the bird breeding season 25. April–15. July . However, the path to the bird watching tower from the road north of it may be used.
