Trondheim is the country’s new food destination. The proximity to some of the world’s best ingredients is the backbone of the Trøndelag food culture. In addition to three Michelin-starred restaurants, Trondheim has culinary gems on every corner, serving food with local products from both the land and the sea.

Go hiking!

In Trondheim, it is not far between nature and the urban city. Go hiking and explore the different neigbourhoods, each with its own distinctive character. Visit colorful Ila, and than continue further up the stairs from Ilabekken, which is the beginning of a longer hike in Bymarka.

If you are looking for a swim close to the city center, you can walk along the Fjord Promenade, which with its green area, sand volleyball court, play areas and ice-bar is a perfect destination for families with children.
