In the popular nature reserve and outdoor area just outside the city centre, called “Bymarka”, you will find kilometre after kilometre of prepared ski tracks accessible to all. You can put on your skis as soon as you step off the bus or tram.
A popular setting off point for visits to Bymarka is Skistua, a café and skiing centre since 1896. Here you can enjoy hot and cold dishes, and easy or more challenging ski tracks running just outside the door. At Skistua you can also rent skis and equipment from Trondhjems Skiklubb.
Granåsen ski centre is Trondheim’s main winter sports arena. Most years the arena host World Cup events in ski jumping and Nordic combined. Visit and experience the adrenaline and celebrative mood. From Granåsen you can also access the network of ski tracks running into Bymarka.
Are you tempted by steep slopes and high speeds? The Vassfjellet, just south of Trondheim, is the place to be. Here you can enjoy yourself in a large alpine sports centre with several downhill runs and Snowboard Park. The alpine facilities at Oppdal and Meråker are not far off either.
If you are in Trondheim in December, you can visit the annual Christmas market. In the week before Christmas, the city square fills up with booths and tents. Buy cakes, art and local food. There are concerts with local and international stars every day. Do you wish to see Trondheim from a wintery perspective? Get a sleigh ride round the city centre!
When it is cold outside nothing beats a hot bath. Visit Norway’s largest indoor water world at Pirbadet. Here you will find a waterslide, hot tub and children’s pool.
