Lauvøya (sometimes Løvøya) is an island in the municipality of Flatanger in Trøndelag county, Norway. The island sits just off the mainland coast, across from the village of Lauvsnes.[1] The main church for northern Flatanger, Løvøy Church, is located on the island. The 2.6-square-kilometre (640-acre) island has been connected to the mainland by a bridge since 1990. The island has several homes on it and has become an important recreational area for the municipality.
