Head to St Olav Street in the city centre, where you’ll board a vintage Gråkall-banen, the only tram line left in Trondheim. The 5½ mile tram line, originally opened in 1924, runs downhill from the town centre, through the outskirts, passing green parks and picturesque old wooden houses painted in vivid colours to Lian, the recreation area of Trondheim.
The tram has been a familiar part of everyday life in Trondheim and as you trundle along you’ll have the opportunity to see how the local people live. You’ll also pass the old fortifications dating back to the 16th century, before climbing Byåsen Hill for splendid views of the calm River Nid, Nidaros Cathedral, fjord and neighbouring fertile valleys.
Changing transportation back to a coach, you’ll drive through new and old Trondheim and pass the Market Square’s impressive statue of Viking King Olav Tryggvason, before stopping at the Sverresli viewpoint to absorb the surrounding panorama of the city and the harbour.
