DEAR READER,

Trøndelag is a gem in the heart of Norway, just waiting to be discovered. I have recently moved to the area and have just been out on my first expedition there. I am still quite euphoric after the event, and would very much like to share my experiences with you. In Trøndelag you can still find wild and unspoilt countryside and can get close to the animals and plants. Take a break from everyday life and go on a pilgrimage or a hike through one of the seven national parks, pick berries and mushrooms where they taste the best, enjoy the fantastic view and the sounds of nature by the campfire. My personal tip for animal lovers: a sea eagle safari with Ole Martin in Flatanger. Culture and history lovers certainly get value for money in our region. At historic settings like Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim or Stiklestad, Viking history is brought to life again. If you are visiting Trøndelag during the summer, you should definitely make sure to attend the Festival of St. Olav (Olavsfestdagene ) – one of the country’s major cultural events, with a wide-ranging programme for young and old. In the mountain town of Røros, which is inscribed on UNESCO’s World Heritage List, the atmosphere is like something out of a fairy-tale. A stroll through the quaint narrow streets may even bring back memories of well-known children’s TV favourites like Pippi Longstocking. The road between sea and mountains in Trøndelag makes for a culinary journey. For a food lover it is quite simply impossible to stay away from all the delicacies and fantastic ingredients that the region has to offer. Scallops from Frøya are served in the best restaurants from Dubai to Tokyo, the dairy produce supplied by RørosMat is exquisite, and venison from Trøndelag has been voted Norway’s best meat product. On the Golden Road (Den Gyldne Omvei), you can stop at pleasant farm shops and cafés where, for instance, you may like to try aquavit ice cream. Should you develop a special liking for any of the products and want more, you can always buy them from the new food hall in Trondheim and take them back home with you. What fascinated me most, though, on my journey through Trøndelag, was the people. They gave me a warm welcome and shared their personal histories with me. It is experiences like that which make a holiday unforgettable. So please let the following pages be an inspiration to you when making your holiday plans. Trøndelag offers a wide range of activities whatever the time of year, and none of them are more than a couple of hours away from Trondheim. I wish you a pleasant and eventful trip!

THE COAST - IN THE HEART OF NORWEGIAN HISTORY For hundreds of years the sea and the countryside along the coast of Trøndelag have formed the basis for flourishing local communities and an abundant coastal culture. Out here you become a part of what has been, while enjoying what is: fishing trips, island hopping, kayaking and wholesome, characteristic coastal fare. The many fishing villages form a beautiful, historical setting for active holiday adventures that stimulate all your senses and provide memories you will take with you into the future.

TRONDHEIM - IN THE HEART OF NORWEGIAN HISTORY Ever since it was started on in 1070 AD, pilgrims from near and far have flocked to Nidaros Cathedral, Norwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s national shrine and the burial site of Olaf the Holy. This magnificent building is one of many sights in Trondheim that bring us a little closer to the past. But Trondheim can also be enjoyed without looking back. Against a backdrop of Norwegian history, you can explore a modern, varied city and have experiences you will remember for a long time.

STIKLESTAD - IN THE HEART OF NORWEGIAN HISTORY The famous Battle of Stiklestad in 1030 was a turning point in the history of Norway. It was here that Olaf the Holy was surrounded by an army of farmers, and it was here he lost his life. The pageant of Olaf the Holy is Scandinaviaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest outdoor drama performance, recreating every year the dramatic events of the Viking Age. At Stiklestad you will have a close encounter with history, and an impressive holiday highlight.

RØROS - IN THE HEART OF NORWEGIAN HISTORY Since the 1600s, the riches from the copper mines have provided favourable conditions for the development of Røros as a centre of creative ability and commerce in the heart of the Norwegian mountains. Today, Røros is a World Heritage site where old and new, tradition and innovation, and myth and reality create a magical setting for a wealth of activities. In Røros, history whispers its story to the future, providing experiences that captivate you today. Book the best holiday in the history of Norway at www.trondelag.com 1) Bergstaden Ziir.

HISTORICAL ADVENTURES IN TRØNDELAG Nidaros Cathedral

includes over 80 buildings of particular interest illustrating Trønder building traditions from village to city, from mountaintop to seashore, in the 1700s and 1800s. Ringve Music Museum includes 2000 musical instruments from all over the world. Munkholmen, the island just outside Trondheim city centre, is a popular place for outings, but has also been a prison, a place of execution and a cloister. The Archbishop's Residence is the oldest church-owned secular building in Scandinavia, and is one of the best preserved facilities of its kind in Europe. The Norwegian Crown Jewels are on display here in the basement. www.sverresborg.no, www.ringve.no www.munkholmen.no, www.nidarosdomen.no

Work on Nidaros Cathedral, Norway's national shrine and the biggest mediaeval church in Scandinavia, was begun in the year 1070. It was built on the grave of Olav the Holy and is a popular destination for pilgrims from all over Europe. The beautiful stained-glass window, the sculptures, frontage, interior furnishings and fascinating history, all make Nidaros Cathedral an attraction that everyone should see. You can also climb the 172 steps to the top of the cathedral tower and enjoy the fantastic view of Trondheim from there. A visit to the crypt (Gravsteinskrypten), Norway's biggest collection of mediaeval headstones, is also recommended. www.nidarosdomen.no

Stiklestad – Norway's historical cradle

The battle of Stiklestad on 29 July 1030, constitutes a turning point in Norwegian history and marks the transition from paganism to Christianity. On the actual site where Olav Haraldsson fell, you can now wander in the footsteps of the Vikings and witness magnificent cultural events

and take part in historical activities. Towards the end of July the St. Olav's Day Festival (Olsokdagene) is arranged. The event has grown into a major cultural festival with a programme for young and old. One of the main attractions at the festival is the Pageant of Holy Olav. www.stiklestad.no

The World Heritage site of Røros is a mountain town with a lot of history and many fascinating sights originating from the old mining community. Bergstaden Ziir, best known as Røros Church, was built during the golden age of copper "in honour of God and for the adornment of the town." The church was completed in 1784, and with its 1600 seats, it is one of the biggest in the country. Olavsgruva and Nyberget are the Røros Museum's show mines, and are located in the biggest and most important mining area belonging to the Røros Copper Works. In the close vicinity of the slag heaps we find Sleggveien Street, providing us with insight into the social history of the mining community. In these houses lived the day labourers, travellers and other people who didn't have their own farms. In more recent times, episodes of Pippi Longstocking and other Children’s TV heroes have been filmed in Sleggveien. www.roros.no

The Pilgrim Route from Kongsvold to Trondheim

A walk in the footsteps of the pilgrims can be both a spiritual journey and a wonderful nature experience. With Kongsvold Fjeldstue mountain lodge, just south of Oppdal, as your starting point, you can walk along marked trails all the way to Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim. On the way, you may like to spend the night at the Pilegrimsherberge hostel in Skaun. www.pilegrimsleden.no

In the footsteps of Christian Thams From Bårdshaug Manor to the Old Mines (Gammelgruva) at Løkken Works

you can experience the old fishing traditions and stay in historical fishermen's cabins. www.vikna.kommune.no

Lighthouse with overnight accommodation

Christian Thams is one of the most fascinating gentlemen Trøndelag has ever fostered. He was a pioneer of engineering and architecture. We can see this today in the form of venerable Bårdshaug Manor in Orkanger, the Thamshavnbanen - Norway's first electric railway, and the Old Mine at Løkken Works. If you’re lucky, you may even catch a concert in the spectacular Fagerlisalen Hall, deep inside the mine. www.baardshaug.no, www.oi.no

Spending the night in a lighthouse is quite an exotic experience. In Trøndelag, there are a number of lighthouses that can be rented for overnight stays, either for weekends or for a week's holiday with a difference. Most of the lighthouses along the coast of Trøndelag were set up between 1830 and 1930, to help show the way for all transport and travel along the coast. Gradually, they were automated and eventually closed down, subsequently becoming listed buildings and the object of burgeoning creativity. On the Trøndelag coast several of them are now being used as overnight accommodations. History is imprinted in the walls of these old lighthouses, and the sea view from the top is quite spectacular. www.kystnorge.com

Historic Rørvik

In the north-western part of the county of Nord-Trøndelag we find the borough of Vikna, with the listed fishing village of SørGjæslingan and the administrative centre of Rørvik. In the early 1900s there were 4000 fishermen in the area, and these places were the biggest fishing stations south of Lofoten. The Norveg Museum, the centre of coastal culture and industries, is located in Rørvik and has already become a national treasure. At the museum you will become familiar with how coastal Norway has developed over the past ten thousand years, by way of fascinating historical accounts, vibrant coastal communities and the challenges of tomorrow.

Engross yourself in geology on the island of Leka

slag heaps in Røros town centre are the scene of the play, and are considered by many to be the most spectacular location in Scandinavia. www.stiklestad.no, www.elden-roros.no

The island of Leka on the Namdal coast is Norway's national geological monument, and an el dorado for those who enjoy the outdoor life and historical adventures. Leka is situated northernmost in the county of Nord-Trøndelag, and has been inhabited for over 10,000 years. Large parts of the island consist of serpentinite and olivine which give it its characteristic yellowy-red colour, and which are otherwise only found on the American side of the Atlantic. Over 400 cultural relics have been registered on the island, including cave paintings, Stone Age finds and hill forts. www.leka.kommune.no

Pageant in Trøndelag

Trøndelag is the world champion of historical pageants, several of which tell a story that will make you forget the present. The Mother of all Pageants, the Pageant of Olav the Holy, can be seen during the St. Olav's Day Festival (Olsokdagene) at Stiklestad in late July. Here, you will be drawn into the battle which was decisive to the Christianization of Norway, and the dramatic events that led to the death of Olav Haraldssønn on the site where it actually took place. The musical "Elden", performed in Røros, is all about the Caroleans' march into Norway and General Armfelt's fatal decision to order a Swedish retreat across the Tydalsfjella mountains, where 3,000 soldiers froze to death.

PILGRIMAGES IN NORWAY

PILEGRIMS AT DOVREFJELL © DAVID TETT

Making a pilgrimage in Norway is more than just a journey through Nordic history, European traditions and Norwegian culture. It is also a very personal experience.

The Pilgrim Trail, St. Olaf’s route to Trondheim, is a network of 5,000 kilometres of roads and paths in Scandinavia, of which 2,000 kilometres are in Norway. All of the St. Olaf Routes lead to the burial church of King Olaf the Holy, Nidaros Cathedral – the most important pilgrim goal in Scandinavia since the canonization in 1031 AD. Today, the cathedral is still an important destination for people who choose to follow the Pilgrim Trail. MAKING A PILGRIMAGE Historically, a pilgrimage is a journey made to a holy place in order to pray, give thanks and do penance. Today, however, pilgrimages are made by all kinds of people, irrespective of faith, and their motivation varies considerably. Some do it because they need a break from their hectic everyday lives, others because they seek a personal challenge, both physically and mentally. Some people consider a pilgrimage to be an educational or character-building experience, while others feel a need to reflect upon their own lives. Whatever the motivation, the common denominator appears to be the same as it has always been: A meaningful and 10

personal journey, in close contact with nature, culture and history. THE PILGRIM TRAIL – ST. OLAF’S ROUTE TO TRONDHEIM When going on a pilgrimage, the route is equally as important as the destination. The Pilgrim Trail – St. Olaf’s Route to Trondheim, meanders through rural districts and towns. It crosses mountains and waterfalls and twists and turns along old paths, evoking a sense of history, culture and local traditions. People who live along the route can tell stories about the old buildings, churches and landscapes, while at the same time offering local traditional fare and inspiring overnight accommodations. It is possible to spend the night at a number of unique places along the Pilgrim Trail. One night you may like to stay at a historical spot like the Kongsvold Fjeldstue mountain lodge in the Dovrefjell mountains, another night you may wish to stop over at a farm on the Pilgrim Trail and stay in one of the many converted storehouses which today serve as pilgrim hostels. The common denominator for these places is excellent hosting based on years of experience in welcoming pilgrims.

HOST OF PILGRIM HOSTEL SUNDET GÅRD

Meeting other people is perhaps one of the best things a pilgrim will experience on the Pilgrim Trail, and encompasses everything from the caring hosts at pilgrim hostels, to the unique togetherness which occurs when meeting other pilgrims from all over the world. NIDAROS CATHEDRAL – SCANDINAVIA’S PRINCIPAL PILGRIM DESTINATION From being a rudimentary wooden chapel on the site of St. Olaf’s grave, the so-called Nidarosdomen has developed into a majestic cathedral, Norway’s national shrine and coronation church. Located in the heart of Trondheim, Nidaros Cathedral is one of Norway’s most impressive buildings, full of beautiful works of art and stone sculptures with rich ornamentation. Reaching the destination of their pilgrimage, after a rigorous journey, was surely an awe-inspiring experience for the pilgrims of the Middle Ages. And even today, it is still a gripping event.

Visit Namdalen – Fishing, Outdoor Life, Togetherness There are few places in Norway where the distance between the Norwegian coastline and the Swedish forests is as short as it is in Namdalen. We find coastal landscapes and Norwegian highlands here. In short, a miniature Norway. Through the mighty forests and mountains of Namdalen meanders the majestic River Namsen, known as one of the country’s best salmon rivers, but also historically as a major transport route for timber. Fishing and overnight accommodation at hotels or in stately homes are both readily available in Overhalla and Grong. Rock City in Namsos is a resource centre for professional music and a Trønder Rock experience centre. Try your hand at compositon, test your lyrics and music in the studio, and get to know the history of Trønder Rock.

majestic Mount Heilhornet, and to the west, the saga island of Leka breaks the surface of the ocean with its characteristic yellowy-red serpentine mountains.

The idyllic fishing village of Sør-Gjæslingan is a listed holiday paradise. You can wind down here in authentic surroundings, spend the night in a charming fisherman’s cabin, or in the landowner’s mansion itself, and explore life as it was at the time when the Lofoten Fishery was the main source of income for people along the coast of Namdalen. If you drive along the Coastal Route (Kystriksveien), you will pass by

Lierne and Blåfjella/Skjækerfjella offer fantastic nature experiences summer and winter. The rural district is known for major events like the Flyktningerennet ski race, Li-martnan market fair and the open-air theatre production Pe-Torsa. Lierne’s trademark, “A Taste of Lierne”, not only involves a taste of local fare, but also activities, culture and handicrafts with a local profile.

Namsskogan Family Park is the biggest tourist attraction in the region. Here you can observe a variety of beasts of prey like bears, lynx and wolves, climb one of Europe’s tallest climbing towers, fly across the lake on the zip line, drive bumper boats, or watch a theatre performance with the rocking sorceress, Rebella Hex.

“KYSTNORGE” (coastal norway) WHERE SEA MEETS SKY The coast of Trøndelag boasts a wealth of bird and animal life, magical light conditions and varied and beautiful countryside. Here, you can immerse yourself in coastal culture, including vibrant local communities, local fare and exciting activities on sea and land. The coast of Trøndelag is wild, yet charming, and offers adventures on the cusp between the authentic and unspoilt, and the modern. An angler’s el dorado awaits you, whether you prefer sea or freshwater fishing. You can hire a boat and fishing tackle and stay in charming fisherman’s cabins. You can also join a local fishing guide out on the open sea and feel the thrill when the big ones bite. How about a trip from lighthouse to lighthouse, going ashore at one or more restaurants or pubs? There are a number of companies who would be glad to tailor a trip for you.

The unique combination of history and nature helps make a trip along the coast

20

of Trøndelag a unique experience. Several ancient burial finds have been made here, including pearls from the Roman Empire. The row of quayside warehouses in Råkvåg is a unique cultural monument dating back to the “great herring adventure”. On the coast of Trøndelag our larder is right outside the door. We are proud of our local ingredients, and can boast of many cafés and restaurants serving local fare. Amongst other things on offer, you might like to try wild mutton, venison, caveaged cheese, mussels, scallops, salmon and crab. You also have the opportunity of gathering your own ingredients from Mother Nature herself. Along the coast you can go fishing, pick mussels, set crab pots and harvest seaweed.


NAMDALEN COASTAL NORWAY INNHERRED

TRONDHEIM Austråttborgen Castle in Ørland is one of the country’s oldest stately homes, and boasts a 1000 years of history. Madam Inger of Austrått lived there – a significant person with regard to the introduction of the Reformation in Norway, and a source of inspiration for Henrik Ibsen’s plays.

Hire a bike and explore the coastal Landscape in Fosen, with its picturesque coastal communities and idyllic islands. Spend the night at a lighthouse with the ocean as your next-door neighbour. A trip to the top of the lighthouse tower offers a view for miles around.

Visit one of the many festivals, village fairs and pageants in the region. Further details available at www.kystnorge.com

ORKLADAL AND GAULDAL

Visit a top modern aquaculture facility, and see the salmon leaping in their pens. A quick, safe, and eventful guided boat ride away from the Coastal Museum premises (Kystmuseet) at Sandstad, Hitra. The fishing village of Titran, where the buildings bear witness to former glory. The Titran Catastrophe of 1899 saw 140 fishermen lose their lives in one night due to a hurricane. A magical place where sea meets sky.

OPPDAL/ RENNEBU

Hopsjøen was one of the biggest trading centres in Trøndelag in the 1700s and 1800s. The general store was the local meeting place, and when you visit it today, you feel like you are 100 years back in time. The archipelago north of Frøya is known as “gullrekka”, the Golden Chain. All the islands have their own special character and history, but still have in common the same coastal culture, and the sea as their larder.

On safari in Froan, Norway’s biggest marine nature reserve, you are guaranteed to see white-tailed eagles, cormorants and seals, together with many other birds and animals.

Trondheim – Norway’s City of Food “Trondheim – Norway’s City of Food,” has gradually become a concept that more and more people are becoming familiar with. And indeed, by virtue of the recently opened Food Hall, the food festival, the brewery festival, several breweries, and innumerable restaurants serving fare based on ingredients from Trøndelag, Trondheim can rightfully call itself Norway’s City of Food. To many people, a visit to Trøndelag means taking the opportunity of enjoying local and ecological fare. In 2015 alone, over twenty new restaurants and eating places were opened in Norway’s City of Food, Trondheim, several of which focus on different types of local fare. In June 2015 Trondheim Food Hall opened its doors, increasing the availability of local fare considerably. At Ravnkloa, down by the canal, you can buy fresh fish and shellfish every day. The assortment available varies in accordance with the seasons, and in summer you can enjoy fresh prawns out in the open.

2

Once or twice a month, the Farmers’ Market is arranged in Trondheim city square. Much of the produce available here is ecological, and you can buy anything from baking and herbs, to meat and cheeses. And the best thing about it is that the food has travelled only a short distance prior to its arrival here.

28

Trondheim’s 30,000 students make their mark on the city by way of arranging a number of festivals and cultural happenings, in addition to being habitual spectators at many of the other cultural events taking place in the city. All year round, festivals of blues, jazz and chamber music are arranged, together with the Pstereo Festival in August, which is one of the country’s biggest, traditional pop and rock festivals. In 2015 the grounds of Sverresborg Trøndelag Folk Museum were used as a venue for major concerts, and there will be several in 2016, too. The impressive cathedral, Nidarosdomen, is often referred to as Norway’s national shrine and, as mentioned earlier, it is a popular destination for pilgrims. The Pilgrim Trail to Trondheim, the St. Olav’s Route, has been awarded status as a European Cultural Route, on a level with the pilgrim trail to Santiago de Compostela, and every year the route is taken by pilgrims from all over the world.


NAMDALEN COASTAL NORWAY THE TOURIST INFORMATION’S FIVE FAVOURITES IN TRONDHEIM:

Spending the day in Trondheim, but don’t know what to do? Here are some tips from the staff at the Tourist Information Centre: Nidaros Cathedral: Nidaros Cathedral was built on the burial site of St. Olav, and is the world’s northernmost gothic cathedral. During the summer you have the opportunity of going up into the tower to enjoy the amazing view of the city. Combine your visit here with a visit to the Archbishop’s residence, where you can also see the Crown Jewels on display.

Bakklandet. This is one of the older parts of town. There are several cafés, restaurants and boutiques here. Have coffee at Baklandet Skydsstation, or walk further on to Kristiansten Fort. The unique bicycle lift, “Trampe”, is also found in Bakklandet. Street life in Nordre gate: Nordre gate is the city’s pedestrian precinct and a popular meeting place in the town centre. If you want to go shopping, visit a café or listen to one of the city’s buskers, this is the place. The tourist information centre is also located in Nordre gate.

open the bicycle stand and take out a bike. Try the bicycle lift, “Trampe” at Bakklandet, too. Bymarka recreational area: Fancy a break from city life? Bymarka is not far away. This extensive nature area is suitable for everyone, whether you want to walk for an hour or two, or the whole day. It’s easy to get there by bus, tram or car. Looking for more inspiration or information? Drop in at the tourist information centre, and we will help you get the most out of your stay in Trondheim.

SVERRESBORG, TRØNDELAG FOLK MUSEUM Evocative historical accounts, travelling theatre performances, activities at Birkebeiner camp, and close contact with animals, all help make Sverresborg a historical oasis for young and old. In a scenic setting surrounding the ruins of Norway’s oldest mediaeval castle, erected by King Sverre the Birkebeiner, we find one of the country’s biggest open-air museums. The Urban Department conjures up evocative images of the period, and presents captivating interior furnishings featured in Trondheim’s fascinating history, from the 1700’s and up until today. Bygda, the rural department, invites visitors to wander from farmyard to courtyard through the whole of Trøndelag, with Haltdalen mediaeval stave church as the icing on the cake. The walk to the summit, where the ruins of King Sverre’s once-so-monumental castle stand, offers a fantastic view of Trondheim, and not least an insight into exciting chapters in the history of the city. A wide range of events make their mark on the open-air museum all through the year. Treat yourself to a visit to Sverresborg. Sverresborg folk museum

NIDAROS CATHEDRAL In the heart of historical Trondheim we find Nidaros Cathedral. Nidaros Cathedral is the world’s northernmost Gothic cathedral. It was built on the burial site of St. Olav, the Viking king who converted Norway to Christianity. Work on Nidaros Cathedral was begun as early as 1070 AD, and the cathedral was completed in all its splendour around 1300 AD. During the summer, you can climb the tower and enjoy a wonderful view of the city.

Historical experiences and activities througout the summer!

SUMMER IN STIKLESTAD 25 JUNE - 14 AUGUST 2016 The Mediaeval farm of Stiklastadir offers a wealth of activities for young and old. The children can act as archaeologists and find traces of the past, or dress up as Vikings and fight with swords and shields at the pretend «Play Battle» of Stiklestad. They can also try their hand at archery, axe throwing and a number of other exciting activities. Every day at Stiklastadir there are guided tours of the longhouse and family­friendly story time sessions. And starting this year, the public are invited to visit the newly built Guest House. For the first time at the Folk Museum you can visit three courtyards from three different periods of time. How about a trip back to 1958 to hear a bit of Elvis on the record player? Or perhaps you will run into refugees who need help to get across the border to Sweden in the 1940s? There are activities for the children every day, including the Barn Playhouse, where the youngest can rest assured that the animals don’t mind being patted and hugged. THE GUEST HOUSE

ORKLADAL AND GAULDAL • «Orkladal» is the term used about the area along the River Orkla, including the boroughs of Orkla and Meldal. • The two boroughs boast a wealth of tradition, history, and vibrant culture • Industrial history, nature, salmon and sports – that’s Orkladalen! • East of Orkladalen we find Gauldal. The region is best known for its salmon fishing in the River Gaula, but it also offers a wealth of other activities and events all year round. • Wild and wonderful countryside – and one of the best salmon rivers in the world. 1

Orkladal and Gauldal Many people associate the region’s name with the rivers Orkla and Gaula, Europe’s best salmon rivers. Salmon are found in large stretches of the River Orkla, and overnight accommodation in hotels, camp sites and private apartments is available at many locations along the river. Both Orkladalen and Gauldalen are important stages in the final part of the pilgrim route to Trondheim. Orkdalsføret is rich in history, particularly with regard to early Norwegian industrial development. The old mine at Løkken Works, for instance, dates all the way back to 1654. The Thamshavnbanen, Norway’s first narrow gauge electric railway from 1908, still runs on the section from Løkken Works to Bårdshaug in the summer. Local fare is becoming more and more popular, and there is an increasing level of awareness among local manufacturers to this effect. Ingredients that can be harvested in the local countryside are found on the menu at a number of venues, including the Bergmannskroa Inn at Løkken Works and Bårdshaug Stately Home in Orkanger. Nature is the main attraction in Gauldal. The Gaula is one of the world’s best rivers for anglers fishing for Atlantic salmon.

50

Every year somewhere between 20 and 50 tons of salmon are caught in the river. Gaula Nature Centre is situated in Støren and offers events and activities all year round. Here you can see over 60 different species of wild animals, together with TV screens showing the life cycle of the salmon. And in summer there is also live coverage from the river. At Forelhogna National Park you can cycle or walk through beautiful, unspoilt countryside. Gauldal is also an exciting place to visit during the winter. Ålen Ski Centre offers challenging slopes for young and old, together with miles of excellent ski trails and many impressive lakes wellsuited to ice fishing.

In the heart of Norway, in Stjørdal, we find Trondheim Airport Værnes where travellers are brought direct from, London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Riga, Gdansk, Copenhagen and Stockholm. We also find the E6 and E14, the train from Sweden, and trains from the south and north of Norway. There are also bus and rail services from here to Meråker, and bus services to Selbu, Tydal and Frosta. One of the country’s most impressive stretches of road, the Fv 705 between Røros/Brekken and Stjørdal, runs through Tydal and Selbu. On this road you might meet reindeer in the mountains, see Trøndelag’s highest waterfall (Henfallet) in Tydal, visit the Norwegian Radio Museum in Selbu, and end up in Hell. Meråker offers horseback riding, Rypetoppen Adventurepark at Teveltunet, dog-sledding and alpine skiing. 61

The Frosta peninsula in the Trondheimsfjord is a true gem. Frosta played a signifi cant role in the Viking Age with its "Frostating" legislative assembly. On the island of Tautra, off the coast of Frosta, we fi nd the ruins of an old monastery from Cistercian times, a pleasant eating place with overnight accommodations and a big new monastery. In this region you can also see rock carvings, fortifi cations, mediaeval churches, many excellent museums and historical performances. You can stay on one of the region’s many farms, taste good local fare, buy art and handicrafts and attend music festivals. Please contact our tourist information centres, we will gladly help you with suggestions regarding activities and overnight accommodation.

ON FOOT IN TRØNDELAG Trøndelag is a popular region for hiking, and rambling trails can be found in the inland regions, in more urban areas and along the coast. Hiking experiences may vary from family friendly day trips along prepared trails, to more extreme adventures like mountaintop walks. In Trøndelag there are no less than nine national parks (see page 64) all of which are well suited to hiking, including Femundsmarka, Sylan and Børgefjell. In most of the parks, hiking takes place on marked trails and may be combined with activities like hunting and fishing. Trekanten (the triangle), in the T rollheimen mountains, is one of Norway’s most popular mountain walks. It leads through the glorious, magnificent countryside between the Gjevilvasshytta, Jøldalshytta and Trollheimshytta cabins.

the venerable Kongsvold Fjeldstue mountain lodge. There is also a pilgrim trail from Sweden down to Stiklestad. Northernmost in Nord-Trøndelag we find Leka, the island of geology. In addition to its 400 cultural relics and monuments, Leka is also an el dorado for those who actively enjoy the outdoor life. There are marked hiking trails and geology trails there. In Trondheim, you can easily catch the tram to the beautiful Bymarka area, just outside the city centre, where you will find a comprehensive network of walking trails which will take you to hilltops and fishing lakes.

The Pilgrim Trail to Trondheim and Nidaros Cathedral has been awarded the status of European Culture Route, and every summer it attracts pilgrims from all over Europe. Along the trail, you can spend the night and have a meal in anything from cosy hostels to NAME

The fishing in Trøndelag is perfect for an angling enthusiast like me. Jürgen, austria

FISHING IN TRØNDELAG Trøndelag is an excellent region when it comes to deep-sea fishing, fjord fishing, freshwater fishing and salmon fishing. Accessibility and good catches are characteristic of fishing in Trøndelag, and everyone likes a good fisherman's tale or two.

Deep-sea fishing and fjord fishing

The central part of the Trøndelag coast is called Fosen. The lesser number of isles and skerries here allows you quicker access to the open sea. On the inner coast of the Fosenhalvøya peninsula, lies the Trondheimsfjord, which stretches all the way up to Steinkjer. The entire fjord is abundant in fish, and there are good conditions for fjord fishing from the shore or from boats.

All along the coast of Trøndelag you will find excellent spots for deep-sea fishing and fjord fishing, either from land, by hire boat, or on a guided tour with a local skipper. In the south lie the islands of Hitra and Frøya, an island realm where isles and skerries provide shelter from the weather, providing excellent fishing conditions, while at the same time the distance out to the open sea is short. You will find a number of excellent overnight accommodations here, where you can also hire a boat - and there is plenty of fish!

Northernmost we find the coast of Namdalen, stretching from Flatanger, via Namsos and Vikna, to Leka. Here too, the isles and skerries offer shelter from the wind and weather, ensuring good

River Fishing in Fosen When it comes to fishing smaller salmon, some of Trøndelag’s best rivers are found in Fosen. A lot of salmon is caught there, but the same goes for sea trout and charr. The Stordalselva is the best known of these rivers and its outlet is found in the centre of the borough of Åfjord. For further information about salmon fishing, please visit www.gaula.no, www.orklaguide.com, www.verdalselva.no, www.stjordalselva.no

and safe fishing. In the Namsenfjord, you will find many of the commonest species of fish, such as cod, saithe and redfish, but there are also some sea trout there, too. For further information about Deep-sea fishing in Trøndelag, please visit www.fiskinginorge.no (Sør-Trøndelag /Nord-Trøndelag)

Salmon Fishing

Ever since and the English salmon lords discovered Trøndelag in the 1800s, eager anglers from all over Europe have made their way here to fish salmon. Rivers like the Namsen, Gaula, Orkla, Verdalselva and Stjørdalselva have a nice ring to them in the ears of practically any salmon enthusiast. Salmon weighing over 7 kilos comprise over half of the total catch, so expect a good challenge when they start to bite.

Freshwater Fishing

If you enjoy fishing in ponds and lakes, then Trøndelag will tempt you with its thousands of fishing lakes. There is plenty to choose from, whether you are seeking a simple fishing trip near the city, or want to relax in peace and quiet in the mountains.

The Namsenvassdraget Watercourse The Namsen is often referred to as the Queen of Salmon Rivers, but among its tributaries there are a number of princesses to choose from. The Sanddøla, Nordelva, Bjøra and Høylandsvassdraget are also excellent salmon rivers. Harling is a common fishing method used on the Namsen, and local guides will row you down the river, while you focus on the fish.

Trout Fishing The River Namsen in the county of Nord-Trøndelag is one of the best rivers in the country when it comes to trout fishing. Furthermore, there are about 800 fishing lakes and 35 rivers there, where you can fish trout and charr of exceptional quality. The River Nea is located in Tydal and is one of Europe’s finest trout rivers. It starts at Sylane in Tydal and runs out into Lake Selbusjøen. Every year big trout weighing 5-6 kilos are caught there, and trout weighing 1-2 kilos are a common catch. Snåsavatnet is the sixth biggest lake in Norway, and the trout fishing is excellent there, too. In Trondheim you can take the tram to Bymarka, where you will find almost 30 fishing lakes. Trout are often caught there, but you may also catch pike. For further information about freshwater fishing, please visit http://www.namsskogan-fjellstyre.no/ www.neafisk.no www.fiskeveien.no

Other rivers along the Namsenfjord There are a number of good salmon rivers along the Namsenfjord. Here, you may become better acquainted with the rivers Bogna, Aursunda, Årgårdvassdraget, Lausnesvassdraget, Opløvassdraget and Salsvassdraget. The Trondheimsfjord The Trondheimsfjord is unique in a global context having over 40 salmon rivers along its banks. The number of rivers, together with the large numbers of salmon, make the Trondheimsfjord, with the rivers Gaula, Orkla, Nidelva, Stjørdalselva and Verdalselva, one of the best salmon fishing areas in the country.

ACTIVE IN TRØNDELAG Trøndelag is a region full of exciting activities: high pulse rates on the climbing wall, enchanting horseback rides, euphoric children begging for “just one more time”, quiet paddle strokes as your kayak glides forward among islets and skerries, a bent fishing rod with a big one on the hook, cycling in beautiful cultural landscapes, or a guided safari in search of the mighty musk ox – you will find activities suitable for everyone here, from family holidays to an outing with the lads.

CLIMBING Climbing in Trøndelag offers a challenge to keep-fit enthusiasts and the world’s best climbers alike. There is great scope for climbing both along the coast and in the inland regions. Places worth visiting include Snillfjord, Fosen, Stjørdal/Hell, Ekne and not least Flatanger. The best climbers in the world congregate in Flatanger to climb the great overhanging rocks there. In October 2012, David Ondra from the Czech Republic climbed a new route on the Hanshelleren, which is today considered the most difficult sport climbing route in the world. Information about climbing in Trøndelag can be obtained by contacting local climbers or climbing clubs. LOCATION NAME

CHILDREN’S TRØNDELAG Children visiting Trøndelag have a lot to look forward to. Several of the adventure centres live by the motto that “it is compulsory to touch things,” directly involving the children in their activities. In Trondheim we find Rockheim – the national museum of popular music, the Museum of Science and the Science Centre (there is one in Steinkjer, too). Here, the kids will find an outlet for all their needs to explore, and will themselves play an active role in creating their own adventures.

A visit to a swimming pool is always a popular event, and there are excellent facilities at Oasen (Namsos), Dampsaga Bad (Steinkjer), Trønderhallen (Levanger), Pirbadet (Trondheim) and at Oppdal Culture Centre. All over Trøndelag you will find show farms where the children can take part in everything from horseback riding and feeding the animals, to jumping in the hay and walking along nature trails.

At Namsskogan Family Park there are many familiar animals and many rare ones, and there are exciting activities enough to fill a long day, at the very least. In July, the magical rock theatre performance about Rebella Hex is on, exciting for young and old. Bears, Tough Guy Tower (tøffingetårnet), excavators and bumper boats are also things that the kids eagerly talk about.

Find more tips about family activities in Trøndelag at: www.trondelag.com

For those seeking extra thrilling experiences we recommend spending the night in Sami-style tents right next to bears and wolverines, being zoo keeper for a day, or climbing the 15 meter tall climbing tower. At Rypetoppen Climbing Park in Meråker, you can enjoy yourself on the climbing courses all day long. Rypetoppen colour code their courses. Yellow is the easiest and closest to the ground, and black is the most demanding. A great activity for the whole family. At Ler in Melhus and Øyna (Inderøy) you can play football golf. If you prefer the wet element, canoeing is both good for your health and lots of fun, and canoes can be hired at many different places in the region.

THE TASTE OF TRØNDELAG When it comes to food, Trøndelag is Norway's most prominent region, offering a wide variety of local culinary specialities originating in locations ranging from sea to mountains. There are over 200 local food manufacturers in Trøndelag, and no other region can boast of such a wide range of locally produced food in its grocery stores and restaurants. You will find culinary highlights waiting in line, and they are easy to combine with nature and cultural adventures.

The Farmers' Market and Food Hall, Trondheim (Bondens Marked og Mathall)

Scallops by Seashell AS (Ltd) in Frøya are served in the best restaurants from Dubai to Tokyo, crabs from Hitra are sent to seafood buffets in Paris, RørosMat's dairy produce is unique in quality, and venison from Trøndelag was voted Norway's best meat product.

Several times a year, local food manufacturers congregate in the culinary capital of Trondheim. The Farmers' Market is arranged in Trondheim town square once or twice a month. This is where you buy your local and ecological food direct from the manufacturers. In summer 2015, a food hall was established in Trondheim city centre. The food hall, Mathall Trondheim, offers a wide range of food and drink, and a large part of the assortment comprises produce from Trøndelag.

All over Trøndelag you will find small food companies who make their own specialities, and in recent years about a dozen microbreweries have been established in Trøndelag. Many of their products have found their way to regular shop shelves, while others are still only exclusively available at farm shops or are served at select restaurants throughout the region.

78


Some of our best memories from our holiday in Trøndelag involve all the incredible culinary experiences we had. Müller family, germany

goods. One of the oaken vats of spirits that had not been sold, was opened in order to celebrate the crossing of the Equator (the Line), and there was considerable amazement among the seafarers over the content of their mugs. During the voyage, a transformation had occurred in the oaken vats. Safely back in Trondheim in 1807, the vats were opened once again.

The Golden road (Den Gyldne Omvei)

At Inderøy and in the historic area around the Trondheimsfjord, there are a large number of food companies with their own farm shops offering delicious foods, including cheeses, ice cream, bread and cakes, and meat produce. Along The Golden Road you will also find a number of restaurants and cosy cafés that will be happy to serve you food made from local ingredients.

In effect, Line Aquavit had been invented, and the process of maturation in sherry vats was born. In 1821 the young, recently graduated Jørgen B. Lysholm opened a distillery in Trondheim.

The Røros Region

Mining and urban agriculture have created a very special mountain town, a man-made wonder of unique cultural value, which is also inscribed on UNESCO's World Heritage List. The many local food manufacturers in the region have made their mark on eating places and shops by way of their wide range of products. Why not join one of the popular "Local Food Safaris" and receive information about food production at a number of different places, while sampling many of the tasty morsels made in the region?

Today, you can try various different kinds of aquavit made from old recipes and with historical herbs at many venues in Trondheim and Trøndelag. Design your own unique journey in "the footsteps of aquavit" and enjoy fantastic fare from Trøndelag. Visit www.trondelag.com for further information about aquavit in Trøndelag. On the following pages we will present places in Trøndelag offering culinary experiences in a class of their own. Try adding the ones of your choice to our suggested motoring itineraries on page 86-91. Our suggestions are intended to provide inspiration to travel around Trøndelag, and also to visit some of the places that are off the beaten track. Enjoy!

The Historical Aquavit Tour

Trondheim is the birthplace of so-called "Line Aquavit". In 1805, the "Trondheims Prøve" set off for the East Indies with, amongst other things, five vats of potato spirits in her hold. On 7 December 1806, the ship crossed the Equator with its hold full of spices and other Food Hall, Trondheim. Photo: Marius Rua

Røros just has to be seen. Quite unique in so many ways. A visit will often end up in a lifelong love affair with the place. Marvin, norway

RELISH THE BLUE HOUR IN RØROS The blue hour occurs in the twilight, every morning and evening when there is neither complete daylight nor darkness. When the blue light spreads out across the Rørosvidde mountain plain, it brings peace and tranquillity down in the town. There is no doubt that the blue hour conjures up magical experiences. All children know that it is the blue pixies who are the cause of the evocative blue hour, and even though there is also a scientific explanation to the phenomenon, there is widespread consensus that it creates a unique and magical atmosphere. In Røros it is an unforgettable experience. The blue light is reflected in the snow-covered mountain plains, illuminating the mighty Røros Church. The blue hour is the perfect time for a trip in the mountains or forest, and there is great scope for this in Røros.

Dog Sledding

Sleigh Rides

A sleigh ride on the mountain plain is an invigorating experience, and when there are reindeer pulling the sled it is an extra exotic one. Among Sør-Sami Røros reindeer, you can join in and catch the animals with a lasso, and then have them pull your sled.

Dog sledding is fast-moving and fun. As the blue light unfurls across the mountain plain, it is the perfect time to head off into the wintry countryside on a dog sled. The adventure also includes a stop at a warm cabin, where you can make dinner from local ingredients, based on a local recipe and advice from the chef.

Reindeer sledding

A ride on a horse and sleigh through Røros town centre can be a romantic and idyllic experience. Jingling bells and torch light accompany the views as you glide along the snow-covered streets.

Cross-country Skiing

Kicksledding

In Røros the open countryside is nearby, whichever way you turn. In winter you can put your skis on right outside your hotel door and be out on the pistes in a matter of minutes. There are wonderful prepared trails taking you up into the mountains or out to cabins where you can buy refreshments.

Explore Røros town centre on a kicksled. Using a kicksled allows you to get further afield much quicker, and will often end up in an informal “first one back to the hotel” contest. Kicksleds are also good to hang your shopping bag on, for those who might succumb to the temptation of shopping in Røros.

Ice fishing

Read more about adventures at the blue hour at www.roros.no

Sitting out on the ice on a mountain lake in the blue light of early morning with a fishing rod in one hand and a cup of coffee in the other, surrounded by white mountains and beautiful scenery, is not to be sneezed at. Combined with the chance of catching fine charr or trout, this should be an experience you will find hard to forget. Photo: Finn Nilsen 1) Os. Photo: Arne Tønset 2) Røros.

WINTER ACTIVITIES Winter activities in Trøndelag are many and varied, and at several places you are also guaranteed plenty of snow. In winter you will find impressive ski slopes at venues like Oppdal, Røros, Meråker, Grong and the Vassfjellet mountains just outside Trondheim. Smaller family slopes are found at places like Røyrvik, Børgefjell and Holtålen. Dog sledding and horse and sleigh rides are the second most popular activities after skiing, and a number of companies offer a variety of scope for such pursuits. If you are looking for more speed and excitement, several companies offer mountaintop hikes and kiting. Just about anywhere you go in Trøndelag it is easy to find trails with good conditions for cross-country skiing. In winter there is also a wide range of markets, of which the most popular are the Christmas markets and the market fairs. LOCATION

Unique Overnight Accommodations in Trøndelag Trøndelag offers a wide range of overnight accommodations, and in addition to modern hotels you will also find many other charming and pleasant places to stay all over the region. Among the most unique overnight accommodations in Trøndelag we find authentic fisherman's cabins along the coast and lighthouses far out to sea. Below we offer you our best tips for accommodations that will give you an experience you will find hard to forget.

Coastal culture in fisherman's cabins

Holidays in fisherman's cabins offer good fishing and close contact with traditional fishing villages. These cabins were originally the dwellings of visiting fishermen who were away from home fishing for long periods of the year. Today, the cabins are rented out as well-equipped holiday apartments. As much as possible of the of the old style of the cabins has been retained, while at the same time taking into account modern demands on comfort. The cabins are idyllically situated on the sea front, where spectacular views of the marina and the surrounding countryside are included in the price. Several of the cabins are also in close proximity to a number of good restaurants, where the highlight of the day is when fresh fish and seafood is landed on the quay. The cabins offer a perfect change from the routines of everyday life, and are well-suited to the outdoor life, holiday activities and recreation. www.trondelag.com

A special night out at sea

Spending the night in time-honoured lighthouses far out to sea is a unique experience. The extraordinary location of the lighthouses and their striking design create a distinctive atmosphere, and you can clearly grasp how the sea and shipping have been the life nerve of the coast throughout the ages. At most of these locations you will stay in the lighthouse keeper’s residence, where you can make your own meals, but at some of them you can also spend the night in the tower itself. Standards vary from the rudimentary to the more comfortable. www.trondelag.com

In a sleeping bag, lulled by the snoring of wolves

At Namsskogan Familypark you have the opportunity of spending the night in Samistyle tents next to the enclosures where both bears and wolverines are kept. Sleeping bags and other necessary equipment are available for hire. Before settling down for the night you might like to sit and enjoy the campfire atmosphere, or go canoeing or trout fishing. Lying in your sleeping bag listening to a howling wolf is an exciting experience, and if it falls asleep before you do, you might end up dropping off to the accompaniment of a snoring wolf. Spending the night at predator camp is a thrilling adventure for the whole family, and is particularly popular among the children. www.namsskogan.no

In the top of a tree

Have you ever thought of spending the night several metres above the forest floor, in amongst the treetops with squirrels as your next-door neighbours? There are a number of treehouses offering an unforgettable experience in the wild, and Spetterspiret at Letnes Farm is one of them. The treehouse offers close contact with nature, birds and woodland animals, in addition to a panoramic view of the cultural landscape. We have received reports of magnificent sunsets which may well be enjoyed from a beautifully heated outdoor bathtub. In the near vicinity there are excellent rambling trails and good fishing, and furthermore, canoeing is popular when the waters are calm. www.letnes. wordpress.com

Among celestial light phenomena

Hessdalen is situated in the borough of Holtålen, between Røros and Singsås. The site is well-known at home and abroad for its observations of unusual light phenomena. Sami-inspired wooden cabins have now been built there, one of which has a glass roof. The cabins are open to the public and have a view of Finsåhøgda and Rogne, where many people have observed these curious light phenomena. In conjunction with the cabins there is also a campsite with benches, an outdoor toilet and a lean-to. In addition to overnight accommodation, mountain horseback riding and a number of other activities are available in the near vicinity. www.visithessdalen.no 1) Kjeungskjær lighthouse.

Sea fishing Recreational fishing in the sea using a rod or handline is free of charge. Please note that you are only allowed to take 15 kg of filleted fish, together with one trophy fish, out of the country. You are not permitted to sell your catch.

The drink and drive limit Norwegian drinking and driving regulations are very strict. The permitted blood-alcohol limit is 0.2 per thousand.

Freshwater fishing For freshwater fishing you are required to purchase a fishing license. In salmon rivers you are required to purchase a local fishing permit. Visit www.inatur.no for further information (only in Norwegian). Local regulations may also apply. Fishing with live bait is not permitted.

Speed limits The normal speed limit in Norway is 80 km/h outside of built-up areas and 50 km/h within built-up areas. In residential areas the speed limit may be reduced to 30 km/h. On Norwegian motorways and certain other main roads the speed limit is 90 km/h or 100 km/h. On these roads the highest speed allowed for motor homes and vehicles towing caravans is 80 km/h.

Disinfection In order to prevent the spreading of the salmon parasite Gyrodactylus Salaris, all fishing tackle used outside Norwegian national borders must be disinfected. The same applies to fishing tackle used in rivers or watercourses in Norway where contagious diseases are known, or suspected, to be present.

Toll roads There are approximately 50 toll roads (toll stations) in Norway, and many of them are unmanned. In order to pay the fee, you can register your debit/credit card at www.autopass.no and use the autopass lane at all toll stations, alternatively you will receive a bill in the mail a few months after passing the tollgate. At manned toll stations you can pay with cash or card.

The right of way The right to move freely through the countryside is an important part of Norwegian cultural heritage. Making fires is not permitted in woodlands or open countryside during the period from 15 April to 15 September. For further information visit www.dirnat.no.

Opening hours - shopping/groceries Shops are usually open Monday-Saturday from 10:00-17:00. Shopping malls are often open longer. Some grocer’s stores are also open on Sundays.
