Norway's geographical navel, the region of Trondelag offers history, culture and natural beauty in equal measure. Discover Norway's first capital, 1,000-year-old Trondheim, hike or bike through nine national parks or along the rugged coastline or ride the rails of the Polar Express across the Arctic Circle. This tailor-made tour has all you could ask for from winter in Norway: a train journey crossing the Arctic Circle, historical Trondheim, wildlife and the arresting landscapes of the Lofotens.

Day by day itinerary

Day 1

Fly to Trondheim and check in to the Thon Hotel Nidaros – a contemporary favourite housed in a early-20th-century stone building. At more than 1,000 years old, Trondheim is the historical heart of Norway and boasts a number of fascinating attractions including the colourful fisherman wharves that line the Nidelven River. The Trondheim food hall, full of locally produced foods ranging from seafood to smoked meats and homemade cheeses, is well worth a visit.
