Travelling to Trondheim
First a kind of warning:
The distances in Norway are big.
If you are travelling by land you most likely will have to enjoy some wilderness eventhough this is not the main reason for your stay.
Rosenborg's hometown, Trondheim, is located aprox. 500 km north of the capital of Oslo.
In this little guide I will be focusing on how you can get yourself from Oslo to Trondheim.
Trondheim Airport Værnes is located 40 km east of the city.
There are (sadly) only a few destiations abroad.
Norwegian Air Shuttle can however bring you from London Standsted (England), Murcia (Spain), Alicante (Spain), Nice (France), Prague (Czech Republic), Warsaw (Poland), Riga (Latvia), Split (Croatia) and Dubrovnik (Croatia) to Trondheim.
SAS fly to Stockholm (Sweden) and Alicante (Spain), Widerøe fly to Copenhagen (Denmark), while Dutch KLM have a direct route to Amsterdam (the Netherlands).
Fares from aprox. €80 (look for special offers).
Because of the big distances in Norway travelling by plane is pretty inexpensive compared to the other ways of travelling.
Earlier mentioned SAS and Norwegian Air Shuttle are the two airlines operating between Oslo and Trondheim.
Fares from aprox. €50, Norwegian usually a bit cheaper than SAS.
Road Rv3 (riksvei 3) via Elverum through Østerdalen (the Eastern Valley) is the shortest and fastest if you are travelling by car.
Road E6 throuh Gudbrandsdalen (the Valley of Gudbrand) is a bit longer, but the nature in this valley is more exciting and beautiful.
The standard of the roads is not that impressive, and travelling time for e.g. Rv3 is at least 6-7 hours.
There are several coach routes between Oslo and Trondheim through both valleys.
Nor-WAY Bussekspress and Lavprisekspressen are the two biggest operators.
Fares from aprox. €40.
As with the coaches there are railways in both valleys.
But you should really choose to travel with "Dovrebanen" (the Dovre line) through Gudbrandsdalen.
That is the fastest line with the nicest nature outside your window.
NSB are operating all railways in Norway.
Fares from aprox. €80 (special offers from aprox. €20).
