Trondheim, Norway

Trondheim is an old town that used to be the country's capital in the Viking Age. These days it's a student town with much to see. Check out the Nidaros Cathedral and the Archbishop's Palace, which has been turned into a museum. Visit Munkolmen Island in the Trondheim fjord to learn more about Norse history.

The Nordland Railway will take you as far north as north goes: above the Arctic Circle. This is quite a long trip, so we advise you to travel by night and get some sleep along the way. Don't forget to look out of the train window for a first peek of the breathtaking Northern Lights.
