Norway’s third biggest city is situated on the west coast by the Trondheim fjord, surrounded by forested hills and the mountains close by. River Nidelva and the classic wooden town houses from the 17th and 18th centuries complete the city. Trondheim was founded by the Viking king Olav Tryggvason in 997 and was the capital of Norway for 200 years. The city quickly developed into a leading center of trade for the surrounding region, a role which it still maintains today.

Trondheim is a vivid city all year round. The winter is shorter than in Åre, already in April the temperature rises. Summer means even warmer days and bright nights which give you time to explore all the possibilities that the easy access to the oceans brings. The Gulf stream makes the autumns mild and nice in Trondheim and a really good time for a visit hence the tourist season peak in the summer.
