The Heart of Scandinavia: Stockholm to Trondheim

On this leisurely paced holiday, you explore Sweden and neighbouring Norway by rail, road, and boat. Start in Stockholm, admiring the historic buildings of Gamla Stan, cruising the Royal Canal, and touring the Vasa Museum. Take the train north to the scenic slopes of Åre, staying in comfort at a mountain lodge. Then cross the border to Trondheim, the Viking-age capital, where a boat tour ferries you past wood-clad merchant houses into the shimmering waters of one of Norway’s largest fjords.

Trondheim

The Nidelva River bisects Trondheim, and today’s boat tour along its course lets you admire the city from the water.
