Froan or Froøyene is a populated archipelago of small, rocky islands in the municipality of Frøya in Trøndelag county, Norway. Froan consists of several hundred islands and islets that lie in the sea about 30 kilometres (19 mi) west of the Fosen peninsula. The islands run for about 40 kilometres (25 mi) in a northeasterly direction, parallel to the coastline. The island village of Halten lies at the northern end of the island chain. Only a few of the islands are inhabited, and in 2017, the population was only 38. The Froan Chapel, built in 1904, is located on the island of Sauøya. The Halten Lighthouse and others are located throughout the islands.
