The walk starts at the Havila Voyages ship and goes to Stiftsgården, a large and stately wooden building that is also home to the Norwegian royal couple when they visit the city. We walk across the square where Trondheim's founder, the Viking king, Olav Tryggvason, stands on an 18-metre-high obelisk.

 The journey then continues to Nidaros Cathedral, Norway's national shrine and one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe. Here we get time to admire the inside and outside of the church.  

We walk over old town bridge, Bybro, which with its elaborate red portals nicknamed "Lykkens Portal" ("Gate of Happiness"). Then we come to the neighbourhood of Bakklandet, which has colourful wooden houses, busy cafés and the world's first bicycle lift. This is in operation in the summer as a helping hand for cyclists who are going up the steep hill.
