Founded as early as 997 A.D., this age-old Viking capital is full of culture and history. It has also established itself as a leader in innovation and Norway’s knowledge center.
A bus tour of Trondheim will bring us past the beautiful red city bridge and old wooden wharf buildings of the Bakklandet neighborhood, which have stood in the former capital along the Nid River since the 18th century.
Then, we’ll enjoy the magnificent panoramic views of the bustling city from the Utsikten viewpoint, which overlooks nearby Kristiansten Fortress, with views of Munkholmen island in the fjord.
The next stop is Nidaros Cathedral, Norway’s national shrine. Built over the tomb of St. Olav in 1070 A.D., it boasts stunning architecture and ornate Gothic-style decoration, carved masterfully into the stone. After a fascinating guided tour of the cathedral, pick up a complimentary book about ‘Norway’s Notre Dame’ to take home as a souvenir.
