Visit Trondheim

Introduction

Founded as a Viking trading post back in the 10th century, Trondheim quickly became one of Norway's most important cities – indeed, it's the country's oldest capital – something remembered today by its colourful old town, timber mansions and Gothic cathedral – a pilgrimage site for nearly a thousand years.

However, the region’s rich heritage isn’t confined to 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. There are even Viking burial sites and Samí reindeer herders. However, much of the surrounding region's charm is natural. There’s everything from mighty fjords and sky-scraping mountains to dramatic coastlines and old-growth forests. It’s 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.
