 Hemnfjorden

Kyrksæterøra is located at the end of the Hemnfjorden, about 5 kilometres southwest of Holla. It was known as the "white town of the Hemnfjorden" at one time, because there were only white houses. The villages of Hellandsjøen and Heim lie to the north and Vinjeøra lies to the south. Hemne Church is located in the village. At one time, there was a shoe factory, a shipyard, a lumber mill, and fish processing plant in the area. Kyrksæterøra was bombed during World War II, but no lives were lost and there was minimal damage. Nearby, the Nazis also had a large camp for Russian prisoners-of-war.

Hemne municipality is part of the Fosen region. The administrative centre of the municipality is the village of Kyrksæterøra. Other villages include Heim, Hellandsjøen, Holla, and Vinjeøra. The highway E39 runs through the southern part of Hemne. The Hemnfjorden forms the border between Hemne and Snillfjord. The Vinjefjorden is located in the southwestern side of the municipality and the lake Vasslivatnet lies in the southeast. In the south near Vinjeøra, there are several hiking trails to mountain lodges such as Sollia.
