Trondheim, Norway’s third-largest city, is located on the shore of the Trondheimfjord – halfway from its origins to the sea. Trondheim emerged as an important place towards the end of the Viking Age, as the newly Christianised Vikings, ready to convert the pagans, returned to their home country. There were two Olavs who Christianised the country: the first, Olav Tryggavason, founded Trondheim and converted the locals before being killed. The second, Olav Haraldsson, was more forceful in his approach. Even though he had been killed too, he later became the Saint of Norway. Today, he is buried under the Nidaros Cathedral, the northernmost cathedral in the world and the second-largest one in Scandinavia. Join me on a walk through the early history of Trondheim, from Nidaros Cathedral to the banks of Nid river, where we’ll be able to see the old harbor district around which the city grew. Emma is a licensed tour guide living in Bergen, Norway. Originally from Australia, Emma fell in love with both the city (and a Norwegian!) and moved to Bergen in 2015. She has been a guide ever since. In addition to providing walking tours of Bergen, Emma also does guide tours throughout Norway and Finland. Emma runs her own business called I Love Bergen, which gives customized walking tours of Bergen. Her tours focus on unique aspects of history, culture, architecture, and stories of everyday life.

Norway was never on my list of countries that I thought I like to visit, until I met up with Emma of Nordic Voyagers! Her series of walks through small towns was delightful. She is definitely in love with her country, & does a great job promoting the small towns that are off the beaten track! 5 stars
