The landscape of Frøya is typically open, virtually treeless and relatively flat. The highest point of elevation on the island is only 75 metres above sea level. The characteristic terrain on Frøya can be described as low lying hills, marshland an many lakes.
Though heather and grass are the dominating vegetation in this peaty moorland, all other vegetation in this purple landscape of common, white and bell heather is influenced by the surrounding sea. Here and there you can see a few leaf trees like rowan, aspen, birch and willows, but there are no evergreeen forests on Frøya.
