A big city

The centre of Norway

Trondheim’s central location has always attracted visitors. Pilgrims journeyed here on foot in bygone days. Today, people come by train, ship or plane of international class. The city’s environment and deeply rooted skiing culture are securing its regrowth.

Pilgrim power

The practitioners say that it is Tröndelag’s countryside and sporting opportunities that are the reason for the successes in skiing. Pilgrims have been making the journey to Sankt Olav’s grave for centuries. Is there something else that cannot be explained hidden in the earth in Tröndelag?
