Trondheim — 5 nights

The oldest of Norway's major cities, Trondheim sits on the southern shore of one of the country's longest fjords.
Trondheim is known for historic sites, sightseeing, and museums. Your trip includes some of its best attractions: pause for some serene contemplation at Nidaros Cathedral, take a stroll through Bakklandet, examine the collection at Ringve Museum, and take in panoramic vistas at Tyholttarnet.

Plan my Trondheim trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia to Trondheim is an approximately 19-hour flight. The time zone changes from Malaysia Time (MYT) to Central European Standard Time (CET), which is usually a -7 hour difference. Prepare for much colder weather when traveling from Kuala Lumpur in August: high temperatures in Trondheim hover around 21°C and lows are around 12°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Thu) early enough to drive to Oppdal.
