Trondheim may not be one of Europe’s busiest or most well-known cities, but it’s certainly a vibrant place to spend a trip. The city’s one airport is conveniently located around 30 minutes from Trondheim. Travellers who don’t wish to stay in the city can use Trondheim Airport as a connection point to other Norwegian and European destinations. There are also train routes connecting Trondheim with the rest of Norway, Sweden and Finland.
Trondheim and the surrounding Trøndelag county area are served by Trondheim Airport Værnes (TRD). Located 12 miles away from the city itself, Trondheim Airport is served by coach and train routes which travel to and from the city centre. The international terminal at Trondheim Airport is small but it has all the facilities passengers need: duty-free shopping and a convenience store, a restaurant and a bar, ATMs, free WiFi, power outlets and a children’s play area.
Norwegian Air International is the only airport which offers year-round direct flights from the United Kingdom to Trondheim. Flights on this route depart from London Gatwick. Travellers from other UK cities (such as Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham) who do not wish to make the journey to London can fly non-direct to Trondheim with another airline, such as KLM, SAS or Wideroe.
Speed is the number-one reason to travel by plane to Trondheim, with direct flights from London taking just two and a half hours. Passengers willing to travel non-direct can depart from one of over a dozen airports in the UK. Transfer options from Trondheim Airport are also fast and flexible. Two coach routes and one train route travel to and from Trondheim Airport throughout the day, taking passengers to different regions in the city (including the eastern suburbs and the student campus) in around half an hour.
The third-largest city in Norway, Trondheim has a booming student population of over 30,000. Thanks to these students, Trondheim has some of the trendiest hotspots and best nightlife in Norway. Travellers who want to do like the students do should check out the hip coffee shops around the city as well as the rocking bars and clubs. Getting around to these places and more is easy thanks to the regular and reliable extensive bus network. Updated in 2019, the Trondheim bus system will now include tram-like super buses which run every five minutes.
