Welcome to Trondheim

Oslo: Bustling city,  peaceful nature

Visit one of Europe’s fastest growing capitals and discover a cosmopolitan city with a vibrant cultural scene, exciting restaurants and modern architecture.

The city is situated in a unique location with the Oslofjord on one side and the beautiful and tranquil Nordmarka forest on the other. Only 30 minutes by tram from the city centre, Nordmarka offers a great contrast to the urban city centre so you can visit the Munch museum or the Nobel Peace Centre in the morning and go for a relaxing walk in the afternoon.

Stay at one of the city’s many Thon Hotels for easy access to Oslo’s many sites.

From 75 GBP per night for two people in a double room

Bergen: The gateway to the fjords

Located on Norway’s west coast, Bergen is the country’s second largest city and is located in the heart of Norway’s fjord region. Surrounded by seven mountains, stunning nature is all around.

Stay in the city centre and visit famous composer Edvard Grieg’s home, Troldhaugen or the historical Hanseatic Wharfs of Bryggen or take the Fløibanen funicular to the top of Mount Fløien for spectacular views of the town.

Alternatively, use Bergen as a base for exploring the magnificent Sognefjord to the north and Hardangerfjord to the south.

From 74 GBP per night for two persons in a double room

Trondheim: Music, food and medieval roots

Trondheim was Norway’s first capital and the heritage from the Vikings and the Middle Ages are still present in Norway’s third largest city. A busy University town with a lively cultural scene, the city skyline is dominated by Nidarosdomen – the enormous gothic cathedral in its centre.

Trondheim and its surrounding areas has over the past years gained a reputation for its locally produced food which can be found in some of the city’s many cafes and restaurants. It also has an annual food festival and popular farmer’s market to explore. Nature is never far away in Trondheim. The large recreational area Bymarka is within easy reach, with an abundance of cycling and fishing possibilities. 

From 74 GBP per night for two persons in a double room
