Central Norway

Visit Central Norway

Introduction

Trondheim is the main hub for visitors to Central Norway and it's well worth spending a few days in this lively coastal city before exploring the wider region. The Nidaros Domkirke, the city's imposing 11th-century cathedral, is one of its main tourist attractions and the surrounding Midtbyen area in the heart of Trondheim is a lovely place to walk or cycle, and many choose to do just that. There are colourful wooden warehouses and laidback cafes beside the River Nid, at the mouth of which the city was founded by a Viking chieftain in 997 AD.

Trondheim's central location means that it's a popular inclusion in tailor-made Norway travel itineraries. Alesund, Bergen and the west coast fjords are possible extensions, as are Lillehammer and Oslo. Other travellers head north, instead, for the Lofoten Islands and the Arctic Circle - a spectacular 900-kilometre route by road or rail.
