Trondheim Kajakk


From the Nidelva River

Discover a completely new perspective of Trondheim on an urban kayak trip along the Nidelva river that winds its way through the historic city.

Paddling down the river in to the city center where you will be able to see the historical old town bridge and the wharves, Nidaros Cathedral, Kristiansten fortress and old boats along the channel. It´s easy to imagine yourself paddling through the past as we glide by colourful old warehouses, medieval Nidaros Cathedral and the formidable Kristiansten Fortress. We also explore the river´s channel near the harbour and see sights hidden from the usual hiker.

The tour is lead by professional instructors with several years of experience. Short introduction to paddling and safety is given before the trip. We have both double and single kayaks which are very stable.

A tip before your adventure:

The weather in Trondheim can vary from day to day. You should dress according to the weather, and it is recommended that you wear wool against your body. It transports moisture, and you don’t get cold even if you get sweaty or wet. Also bring your hat and mittens. You may also want to bring a change of clothes and a water bottle or thermos. Trondheim Kayak always takes weather precautions on its trips, and in case of bad weather, the trip can be cancelled or postponed.
