Central Norway

Trondheim & Trondelag

Norway tailor-made holidays

Introduction

Trøndelag, as Norway’s central region, is the country’s heartland. Here, you’ll find its oldest capital, a truly welcoming local culture and all of Norway’s natural icons, spread out over no fewer than nine national parks.

Trondheim

With direct flights from the UK, most first impressions are made in Trondheim. Founded as a Viking trading post back in the 10th century, it quickly became one of Norway’s most important cities, something remembered today by its colourful old town, timber mansions and Gothic cathedral – a pilgrimage site for nearly a thousand years.

Natural & historical treasures

Trondelag's delights aren't confined to its capital, however. Beyond the city, Monastery ruins crouch in rolling hills, 500-year-old castles stand on stern islands and life goes on in fishing villages seemingly as it has down for the past hundred years. And, throughout the region, you'll find everything from mighty fjords and sky-scraping mountains to dramatic coastlines and old-growth forests, all animated by musk ox, lynx, eagles and bears. Indeed, the region is a true outdoorsman’s paradise. Whether it’s coastal bike rides and island-hopping boat trips or river kayaking and pilgrim hikes, there’s an outdoors adventure for everyone. There's also the chance to take the Polar Express – a spectacular rail journey linking Trondheim with Bodo in Norway's Arctic north.


The Polar Express

A foodie's dream

With so much natural bounty on offer, it’s also no surprise that Trøndelag hosts a thriving foodie scene. In fact, it features more small-scale producers than any other region in Norway, with local favourites ranging from just-caught seafood to smoked meats and homemade cheeses. It’s perhaps best showcased on the Golden Road – a scenic drive among the rural idyll of Inderøy. This remote peninsula delights with a curated collection of artisanal markets, dairies and farm shops.
