Part of the Innherad region, Steinkjer is located in Norway's Nord-Tr?�ndelag county. It is now the municipality's administrative centre, having been populated since the Stone Age. Many stone carvings in the town give proof of this, one in Bardal and one in B?�lareinen. The latter boasts near life-sized etchings of animals.
With lots of wildlife and sightseeing in the surrounding area, the best way to see it all is by car hire in Steinkjer.

The landscape in Steinkjer, with its rolling hills, open fields and dense forests are also great for exploring, and are inhabited by a rich array of wildlife.

Also easy to reach by car rental in Steinkjer is the Bl??fjella-Skj?�kerfjella National Park and Byahalla, the most northern hemiboreal (deciduous temperate) forest in the world. Many species, such as Hazel, Hedge Woundwort, Garlic Mustard and Wych Elm can be found here.
Steinkjer is also great for the arts and has one of the most prominent music scenes in Norway. The Steinkjerfestivalen, held in August each year, sees the town's streets littered with trading booths and public performances.
