The historic centre of Norway

Rooted in Norwegian traditions in the middle of Norway, Trøndelag is a perfect base for experiencing nature, culture and Norway’s exciting history.

Trøndelag’s seven national parks and two nature reserves are suitable for hiking, cycling, hunting and fishing. The salmon rivers Gaula, Orkla and Namsen have attracted anglers from all over Europe ever since the 19th century. The Dovrefjell mountains are one of the only places in the world where you can experience musk ox. The coast of Trøndelag is wild and beautiful and is renowned for its good fishing.

The major city of Trondheim has attractions including the national museum of popular music Rockheim, the lively old town Bakklandet and The Nidarosdomen Cathedral, which is an international pilgrimage site. More than 30,000 students contribute to an urban atmosphere.

The Battle of Stiklestad in 1030, in which King Olav II (later known as Saint Olav) was killed, represents a turning point in Norwegian history and marks Norway’s transition from paganism to Christianity. The Saint Olav Drama performed on the battlefield during the annual Saint Olav Festival is largest open-air theatrical performance in the Nordic region.

The charming mining town of Røros was inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List in 1980. Røros is well known for its vibrant arts and crafts milieu, distinctive small shops and cosy restaurants serving the region’s wonderful local food.

    Things to do

    With its varied landscape, the Trøndelag region can offer activities from fishing and boating, to skiing and hiking in the mountains. It all depends on where you choose to go, and what you feel like doing. The region has several national parks, and if getting close to nature is your thing, this is the place to do it. Just don’t get too close – the musk oxen are not to be trifled with and are faster than you are, even if they don’t look it.

    Food and drink

    With countless producers of local food and a major focus on local food, Trøndelag is Norway’s leading food region. Scallops from Frøya are served at the best restaurants from Dubai to Tokyo, crabs from Hitra are sent to the seafood buffets in Paris and a variety of other products have won awards in Norway and abroad. Did you know that the tradition of “line aquavit” – barrels of aquavit being transported across the equator before being bottled – originates from Trondheim, and that the first written record of aquavit can be traced to Trøndelag? When in Trøndelag - eat and drink local.
