Land of the Midnight Sun
Trondheim is the 4th most populated city in Norway. It is located on the south shore of the Trondheimsfjord at the mouth of the river Nidelva. It is a city to walk and see the sights in the day - Nidelva river, Nidaros cathedral, NTNU campus, and many things to do well into the night while it is still light. This time of year in parts of Norway the sun never sets and it earns its name as 'Land of Midnight Sun'. Trondheim has a healthy nightlife and offers something for everyone - crazy clubs, quiet piano bars, and lounges. Beware - time can escape without the darkness. In daylife the area near Nidaros Cathedral is a most pleasant area for enjoyment - sitting, sunbathing, walking, sport, etc... Trondheim can be explored in a day, but should be explored at night too; discovery is the fruit of exploration.

To really discover it takes more time. Bring a watch!
A friend and I set out one afternoon to take a hike around the Trondheim Fjord. This Fjord is not so steep as some famous ones, but is 3rd largest in Norway. Our mission: To see what the fjuck the fjord is all about. Our journey went well and according to plan, but somewhere we took a wrong turn and wound up on the grounds of a mental hospital. In looking for directions, we tried to explain our situation. We're from NASA, you see, and we took a wrong turn on the fjord... well you get the idea. Finally we found someone who knew we were probably not patients and told us the way out. In the end we conquered the Fjord!
We went to EGON on the last evening (I had tried it once before for lunch earlier in the week). It is located at Thomas Angellst., 8. Nice restaurant, good atmosphere. I had bacon wrapped tenderloin with salad, broccoli and baked potato, followed by bannana split (437 Kroner). That is about $90. Upendra had a blackened chicken burger (145 Kroner). That is about $35. This is very typical Norway. Water is 17 Kr - $3.40 a bottle. It is REALLY expensive there. Not your place for travel on a budget for sure. Tourism here is hard on the pocketbook, but worthwhile for the experience.
Trondheim Hotels & Accommodations review
A Good Time in Trondheim
I was a little uncertain how to rate this hotel in expense, because everything in Norway is expensive. It's like a 4 star hotel, not super fancy, but … read entire review
