Direct to Trøndelag

Fly from London Gatwick to Trondheim from only £49,90*. Explore the city and beyond – Vikings in Stiklestad, quaint Røros and coastal fishing villages.

From history and culture to nature and outdoor activities in stunning surroundings, Trøndelag is a great place to discover typical Scandinavian traditions. Some of the most important events in Norway's history took place in the Trøndelag region, and the coastal area offers outstanding deep-sea fishing and fun activities like eagle safari and kayaking.

Lively Trondheim

Trondheim is the ideal starting point for a visit to the region. The city was founded by the Viking king Olav Tryggvason in 997 and was the capital of Norway for 200 years. Today it is Norway's third biggest city with a population of almost 200,000 and many exciting museums, charming small shops and innovative restaurants. The Nidelven River winds its way through the city centre, passing the magnificent Nidaros Cathedral (built 1070-1300), the old district of Bakklandet and long rows of brightly coloured wharves.

The World Heritage Site of Røros

The quaint mountain town of Røros has more than 100 old wooden buildings, which were built in the mid-17th century when the copper mines were founded. Røros is included on UNESCO's World Heritage List. Explore galleries, cafés and craft shops in the town’s backyards and sample locally produced reindeer, sausages, ham and cheese. Røros has also won several awards for sustainable tourism development.

The coast and coastal culture 

The coast of Trøndelag, with the islands of Hitra and Frøya to the south and the Fosen peninsula and the coast of Namdal to the north, is famous around the world for fantastic deep-sea fishing. You can also go on an eagle and seal safari or try kayakingisland hopping or diving for scallops. There is a flourishing coastal culture in several old fishing villages, for example Sør-Gjæslingan near Rørvik.
