Inhabited since the Viking ages, Trondheim is full of culture and fascinating history. Today, we’ll explore two attractions in this ancient city. First, we’ll visit Nidaros Cathedral, Norway’s national shrine. This cathedral was built over the burial place of Norway’s patron saint, St. Olav, and features incredible Gothic-style architectural details and exquisite works of art. After a guided tour of the cathedral, you’ll have some free time to explore the area.  

Next, the bus will take you to the Ringve Museum of Musical History, where your enthusiastic tour guide will bring the history of Norway’s music to life. Surrounded by a gorgeous botanical garden, this stately manor house was the childhood home of 18th century Norwegian naval hero Peter Wessel Tordenskiold who distinguished himself during the Great Northern War between Norway, Denmark, and Sweden. The museum is conveniently located just outside Trondheim and is an ideal spot to enjoy views of both the city and the fjord.
