A stone's throw from the North Pole
Today, Nice-Trondheim is the non-stop flight from the French Riviera that gets you closest to the Great North. Which doesn’t mean you’ll get to stroll over sea ice, climb an iceberg, or see polar bears. No, Norway’s third largest city has been in the centre of the country for a thousand years, and is more than civilised. Here you’ll find a tramway, fashion boutiques, incredible espresso... But this Viking beauty has something else that none of its rivals in the south can offer: wide open spaces! So flying from Nice to Trondheim may not be conquering the North Pole, but it is the start of a beautiful adventure: one in Nature with a capital N!

Arriving in Trondheim
The Trondheim Værnes Airport is located 35 kilometres from the city centre. To get there, you have several options:
- Take the bus: Lines 38 and 310 can be found a few steps from the terminal exit, and will take you to the city centre in 30 to 50 minutes. As is usually the case, this is the most affordable option. The airport also offers a shuttle service operated by Flybussen, with departures every 10 minutes, which will take you near the city’s main hotels.
- Take the train: the airport has its own train station which is accessible via walkway as you exit the Arrivals Terminals. There’s a train every hour to the Trondheim train station. The trip takes 35 minutes.
- Take a taxi: you’ll find many drivers waiting for you at the airport exit. Given the distance, the price is high: around €60 during the day.
- Hire a car: six agencies have counters at the exit of the Terminal B Arrivals Hall.
What to do in
Nestled in the fjord that bears its name, bathed by the Nidevla, Trondheim is a calm but vibrant city. It’s made even livelier - day and night - by the 30,000 students that reside there. Good humour and infectious energy! Locals here are much more welcoming than their climate and practise a way of life based in simplicity, relaxation, and indulgence. You won’t go hungry or thirsty here! In short, this ancient capital of the Vikings is the jump off point to discover the natural wonders of the realm of Norway.
