Combine a city tour, pretty views, a fascinating open-air museum and a scenic tram ride to experience the best of Trondheim.
Your journey begins with a brief city tour and a photo stop at a hillside viewpoint, for lovely views over the city, before visiting the Folk Museum.
Trøndelag Folk Museum is one of the largest cultural history museums in Norway. The open-air museum has more than 60 vintage buildings, from the 18th and 19th century, which show the local building traditions, including Sami huts, country houses and a 12th century stave church. In the ‘Old Town’, you can visit buildings moved from Trondheim centre, including an old-fashioned grocer's selling traditional sweets, the old dentist's office and ateliers for local handicrafts.
Back in the city centre, your transport changes to the ‘Gråkall-banen’, the only tram line left in Trondheim. The 5½ mile tram line, originally opened in 1924, runs downhill from the town centre, through the outskirts, passing green parks and picturesque old wooden houses painted in vivid colours to Lian, the recreation area of Trondheim. The tram provides the opportunity to see how the local people live and also offers an excellent view to the city and River Nid below.
Rejoining your coach there will be a photo stop at the 12th century Gothic style Nidaros Cathedral, which has become one of Europe's most important pilgrimage churches, before returning to the port.
Note: There is some uneven terrain at the Folk Museum. The tram ride is approximately 30 minutes. Please carry personal belongings with you, as you may not return to the same transport.
