Description

Be sure to read the Special Notes further down this page for important requirements and restriction.

Board your motorcoach for a brief drive through Trondheim's city center to Nidaros Cathedral.

Founded in 1152, Nidaros Cathedral took 230 years to complete. During its long history, the cathedral has been damaged or destroyed by fire on several occasions and has even been damaged by lightning.

The basilica is home to the remains of St. Olav, Norway's patron saint, making it an important point of pilgrimage since the 12th century. The western façade of the basilica is adorned with sculptures depicting Norwegian kings, bishops and saints. The interior boasts a fine modern crucifix by the great Norwegian sculptor Gustav Vigeland.

From the cathedral walk to the Archbishop's Palace. The oldest secular building in Scandinavia, the palace was built in the 12th century and served as the residence for Trondheim's Catholic bishops until the Reformation. Tour the Palace Museum, which exhibits archeological artifacts unearthed at the palace including the Archbishop's Mint.

Reboard your coach and drive through the city to Kristiansted Fortress. Completed in 1684, the Fortress offers sweeping views of Trondheim and the Nid Estuary. In 1718 the fortress withstood a Swedish invasion force.

After taking in the view, board your coach for the return to your ship.
