Nidaros Cathedral and Ringve Museum Trondheim – Hurtigruten land excursion

Nidaros Cathedral in Trondheim by Andreas Belting, Hurtigriten

Enjoy a sightseeing trip to Nidaros Cathedral and Ringve Museum in Trondheim. Few large cities have managed to preserve their intimacy as effectively as Norway’s third largest city, Trondheim.

This is an optional land excursion which you can add to your Hurtigruten cruise booked through Fjord Travel Norway. The land excursion will appear during the tour booking process, with prices and details.

Nidaros Cathedral Trondheim by Hurtigruten

Nidaros Cathedral Trondheim

Trondheim is an ancient city, founded by the Viking King Olav Tryggvason as early as 997. On this excursion you will explore two of Trondheim’s main attractions. First, a visit to the Ringve Museum of Musical History, where your enthusiastic tour guide will bring the history of Norway’s music to life. This beautiful manor house was the childhood home of Norwegian naval hero Petter Wessel Tordenskiold, and is surrounded by a wonderful botanical garden. The Museum is conveniently located just outside Trondheim, and so represents an idyllic spot to enjoy the beautiful views of both the city and the fjord.

Next, the bus takes you to Nidaros Cathedral, Norway’s national shrine. The cathedral is built over the burial place of St. Olav, Norway’s patron saint. Here you can admire its incredible architectural details and exquisite works of art. After a guided tour of the cathedral, you have some free time to explore*.

*Guiding outside the cathedral and in the museum Sundays and bank holidays due to church service.

What our customers say:

  • On behalf of the group I would like to thank you and your colleagues for organizing our wonderful tour of Norway. Everything went very well including the weather, which was spectacular. We enjoyed all the hotels, the central locations you chose and the amenities, especially the lavish breakfasts. Three extra days in Oslo allowed us to tour the city at our leisure and to enjoy more of the important sights including the newly opened National Museum. The Norway in a Nutshell tour was amazing and made much easier by using your recommended porterage service between hotels in Oslo and Bergen. Both the train journeys and the boat trip were spectacular, and combined with a night in the beautiful Kviknes Hotel made for an unforgettable two days. We were very impressed by the Hurtigruten cruise, particularly the way they combined a working ship with a cruise ship, the comfortable accommodations, the food and service. It was fascinating to visit all the various ports, islands and fjords and the two included tours were excellent and informative. In the end we were glad to have the extra night in Kirkenes, to visit their lovely museum and take a trip to the Russian border. It was a good way to end the tour. Again, thank for staying with us through 2 years of pandemic postponements and changes. We certainly will recommend Fjord Travel in the future.

  • I wanted to thank everybody. We had a wonderful trip. Everything went well and fortunately we had the chance to see the lights while on the cruise. All my friends in Turkey would like to go on a similar trip. So I will be in touch with you. Thanks again and best wishes to all of you.

  • Thank you for assisting us with our trip to Norway. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kirkenes and the Snow Hotel. The arrangements you made for us were perfect. The lodging was comfortable and the excursions were fun. Tom and I rarely use the services of a travel company when we travel; you enriched our trip and made the planning easy.
