Homla is a river in the municipality of Malvik in Trøndelag county, Norway. The 10-kilometre (6.2 mi) long river begins when it flows out of the lake Foldsjøen and it ends when it empties into the Trondheimsfjord at the village of Hommelvik.[1]

The Homla was first used by the timber industry to transport recently cut trees, but it is now just a small river with good fishing opportunities. Small-sized salmon and sea trout can be caught here.

Around the year 2000, there were plans for constructing a large dam over the river's largest waterfall, "Storfossen". Due to local opposition, these plans were eventually aborted.
