Eastern Norway Viken FREDRIKSTAD

Roald Amundsen's birthplace

  • Framveien 9, Fredrikstad
  •  /  km From You
Overview

Roald Amundsen was born in Fredrikstad. Young Roald got a taste for adventure here, the proud sailing ships of the family shipping firm were berthed on the Glomma below his farm.

Roald Amundsen was born in Fredrikstad. Young Roald got a taste for adventure here, the proud sailing ships of the family shipping firm were berthed on the Glomma below his farm. He left his home "Tomta" in Fredrikstad at an early age, but always returned during holidays.

The farm is now a museum. The old “captain’s house” is one of the best preserved in the country, and contains furniture from the period and souvenirs from Amundsen’s expeditions. Our guides are ready to take you on a tour of Amundsen’s dramatic life.

His biographers claims that his interest in research and seamanship was developed here by the river Glomma. His father and uncles run a large shipping business with 17 ships, and young Roald spent all his summers here until he was fourteen.
