Our experienced guides look forward to provide you with an unforgettable experience of Norwegian culture and tradition. 

Discover Trondheim's history from the 1700s till today in the Old Town. Meet some of the people who lived here in the old days, visit their homes, offices, workshops and businesses. Enjoy the atmosphere in the old town square, or the peaceful quiet in the lovely herbal garden behind the apothecary.

In the country side, we recommend a visit to Oppdalstunet, with its beautiful timber buildings and lavishly decorated intertior. Waiting for you here are experiences of celebration and everyday life on a farm from the 1800s; traditional crafts, food samples and possibly a dance or two!

The open-air museum har yet more to offer for those who have some additional time to spare; buildings, cultural landscape, the viewpoint from the castle ruins, and the jewel of the open-air museum: the Stave church from Haltdalen.
