Sunnan or Sundan is a village in the municipality of Steinkjer in Trøndelag county, Norway. It is located in the area between the lakes Snåsavatnet and Fossemvatnet about 10 kilometres (6.2 mi) northeast of the town of Steinkjer. The village of Følling lies about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) to the west and the village of Binde lies about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) to the east.[2]

Its population in 2003 was 233,[3] but since 2004 it is not considered an "urban settlement" by Statistics Norway, and its data is therefore not registered.[4]

Sunnan was the terminal railway station of the Hell–Sunnan Line from 1905. In 1926, the line was extended and became part of the Nordland Line.
