Trondheim is the third largest city in Norway, and is located in the middle of Norway, only 600 km from the arctic circle. Despite the northern location, the climate is quite pleasant in summer.
Through a more than 1000 year long history, Trondheim has been the ecclesiastical as well as the political capital of Norway. Today, Trondheim is the technological capital.
Several airlines have direct flights to Trondheim from Stockholm (Wideroe), Copenhagen (SAS Braatens) , Amsterdam (KLM) and London (Norwegian). In addition, there are good and frequent connections from Oslo and other Norwegian cities. A number of international airlines have daily flights to Oslo.
It is also possible to fly to Bergen, and catch the "Hurtigruten" coastal express to Trondheim and experience the fjords - or why not catch a train from Oslo to Bergen, and take a detour on the "Norway in a nutshell"-trip? A trip by train from Oslo to Trondheim, is a 7 hour journey through valleys and across montains in the heart of Norway.
