Situated in central Norway, Trondheim is easily accessible whatever your choice of transportation. By plane you will land at Trondheim’s modern airport at Værnes (32 km from the city). If you come by train you can relax and look at the unique Norwegian countryside. If you are coming from the south of Norway you can drive through the majestic Dovre mountains. Another special way to visit Trondheim is by the coastal express which will give you a chance to experience Norway’s special and beautiful coast.

From Trondheim you can also take a trip along some of our beautiful coastal areas. You can go by ferry or catamaran to the Fosen Peninsula, visit the islands of Hitra and Frøya or the city of Kristiansund, some 200 km south-west of Trondheim.
