Nidarosdomen cathedral

Enjoy a sightseeing trip to Nidaros Cathedral and Ringve Museum in Trondheim. Few large cities have managed to preserve their intimacy as effectively as Norway’s third largest city, Trondheim

This is an optional land excursion which you can add to your Hurtigruten cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The land excursion will appear during the tour booking process, with prices and details.

An ancient city, it was founded by the Viking King Olav Tryggvason as early as 997. The tour starts from the pier and takes you to Norway’s national shrine, Nidaros Cathedral – Norway’s only Gothic style cathedral, built over the burial place of St. Olav, Norway’s patron saint. Here you can marvel at the cathedral’s incredible architectural details and exquisite works of art. After a guided tour of the cathedral, you have some free time to explore.

From there, the bus takes you to the Ringve Museum of musical history, where your enthusiastic tour guide will bring the history of Norway’s music to life. This beautiful manor house was the childhood home of Norwegian naval hero Petter Wessel Tordenskiold, and is surrounded by a wonderful botanical garden. The museum is conveniently located just outside Trondheim, and so represents an idyllic spot to enjoy the beautiful views of both the city and the fjord.
