WHERE CITY MEETS NATURE
The blue-green corridor
Ilabekken is a blue-green corridor that connects the city with “Bymarka” nature reserve. This tour can be done alone or as a beginning of a longer trip in Bymarka. The Ilabekken hiking trail starts close to the city center at Ilabekken park, goes up the Iladalen valley ending up at one of Trondheim’s most popular swimming lakes, Theisendammen. It is particularly idyllic in Møllebakken with the small waterfall and the beautiful wooden stairs.
While up at Theisendammen it is possible to extend the hike by walking the beautiful path that goes around the water. The path is approx. 1.8 km.
1,6 km one way
Pass “Kafen in Ila” along Hanskemakerbakken and take the first path to the left. Follow the path up along lush nature, waterfalls and wooden stairs. Along the way, you will have to cross the road a couple of times.
Due to the stairs and partly steep parts, the trip is not suitable for wheelchairs / strollers
Bring you bathing suit, Theisendammen has both a beach and swimming platform!
