Weather in Trondheim

The weather in Trondheim is different from the upper North of Norway. Trondelag has beautiful weather. In fact, a person can experience four seasons in one day. Why? Because we have a changeable climate in Trondheim. Norway has great weather because of the Gulf Stream! The reason is that it carries the warm water. This ocean current starts in the Mexican Gulf, then currents along the Florida coast continue along the American East coast until it turns aside North Eastward by the Grand Banks to the South of Newfoundland where it crosses the Labrador current. The Gulf Stream crosses the Atlantic and reaches North of Ireland where the Continental shelf makes the bulk of the current continue to the North of Norway and round to Russia where it keeps the port of Murmansk ice-free. According to NASA’s Earth Observatory the temperature range from about 7 to 22 degrees Celsius. (Responsible NASA Official: Lorraine A. Remer, Science Mission Directorate)

  • Summer in Trondheim is warm and great, sometimes it gets up to F 94 or C 34.4. However, it can be a little bit chilly around F 64 or C 17 because of the rain and clouds. when it is warm people go around the fjord and river for a nice picnic and swim.

Nidarosdomen

Nidarosdomen is a Medieval cathedral and the biggest church in Europe. It was built in 1070 and restored in 1814. Building Nidarosdomen is the result of generations of craftsmen who spent a lifetime working. Many kings were coroneted at the Nidaros church. This is one of the oldest cathedrals!

There are several small chapels inside the cathedral. Tourists are not allowed to take pictures. You see the great altar, paintings and prayer tables along with benches where people can sit and listen to a medieval Christian melody. There are young priests who walk around modestly due to converse with people and help them with any of their questions.

The music scene in the Cathedral is varied. Entertainment in Trondheim can be different from the other European cities such as: Rome, Paris, etc. In fact, you may find differences between here and the other places. Every person will experience Scandinavia differently. They hold several concerts and recitals during summer which consist of organ, choir and major recitals. The baroque organ is one of the cathedrals attractions.

Stiftsgaarden

( King’s wooden mansion) Stiftsgaarden was originally constructed in 1774 for Cecilie Christine Schøller,the wealthy widow of Stie Tønsberg (a merchant) in Trondheim.
This mansion has 140 rooms (43000 ft) and is one of the major wooden buildings in North Europe. She constructed her mansion and spent most of her time abroad! After her death, many years later the mansion became the center of many festivities, royal visits, and celebrations.

Trondheim Animals

Trondheim Animals are various. There are many species of wild animals in Norway such as Elks, lynx, squirrels, Adders, wolves, foxes, roa deer, snakes, deer, birds, insects, wild cats, badger and bears. Most of these animals are not dangerous as long as they don’t feel threatened, especially during the mating and giving birth seasons. You can go up to the mountains, woods, forests, fjords without being worried about getting hurt by wild animals.

Trondheim elg

Elk

Elk is the largest animal in Norwegian woods. The male adult elk can be up to 240 cm tall and weigh 850 kg. Many Norwegians who have hunting permissions and licenses go for hunting during the hunting season in fall and winter. Elk hunting with a dog( hound) is an old tradition. Norwegians consider it as a fine training. Some of the elkhounds are born to be great hunters!

Do you know why elks have fur? The reason is that fur keeps them warm and some times they even have fur on their horns! Such elks are sick and need medical attention. Elks can be very mean if they feel threatened! Some people say elks are the forest rebel. Reindeer or caribou hunters are good at finding the caribou. They sense their smell in the air or follow their traces. In Norway, there are various types of elk hunting such as:

  • posteringsjakt : hunters chase the animal by following their traces
  • smygjakt: A hunter senses animal’s presence.
  • drivjakt (Noise making): Make some noises in order to send the animal to a place where hunters are patiently waiting( this method is mostly used in south of Norway). Based upon my observations, when deers that hear your rattling, they respond differently! One, the leader (I guess) will come to investigate where the noise comes from, two will run dead away and seven will ignore it. Hunter’s patience and persistence are very important factors for success.

Trondheim Animals are under the protection of the Norwegian environment authorities. When you drive a car on the road, you might see elks and reindeer everywhere. That is why there are signs that warn you to drive carefully for not hitting an elk on the road for your safety.

Trondheim lynx

Lynx

Lynx in Trondelag can be found in forests and mountains. Sometimes they attack sheep which is unpleasant for the farmers in animal production. They are wild animals but so beautiful. They live in central and north Norway. They usually eat cats and other small animals.

Hare

They live in prairies and forests and their fur changes color with the seasons, brown in summer and white in winter. Hares live around Trondheim and the other cities in central Norway.

Trondheim adder(hoggorm)

Adders

They were observed in Trondelag. I have seen one in the North of Trondelag on the mountain. If an adder bites someone, it gives a slight fever to the victim. Their poison does not kill at all. They eat mice and the other small animals and bite if they feel threatened. In summer 2008 many adders were discovered in Jonsvatnet area in Trondheim. That is why people especially joggers and hikers were warned about adders in those areas.

Wolves

Wolves are not too many in Norway. They are protected by the Norwegian natural environment. They live in the forest and eat small animals. They also can be found in the upper north and very few in the south of Trondelag. Foxes and Brown bears live in the forest. Brown bears( Bjorn) are few in Trondelag. They live either underground or inside the holes.
