Tips on how to get to Trondheim
If at all possible, fly directly to Trondheim.
If you have the time, I do recommend the train from
the Trondheim Airport Værnes and in to Trodheim --
a beautiful 30 minute or so ride along the fjord. Alternatively,
grad one of the airport buses right outside that takes
you to the hotels downtown. The buss is around NOK 80,
whereas taxis run over 500 for the local
ones, or ca. NOK 300, if you ask for a "flytaxi" fixed rate
from the Trondheim city-based taxis that are marked
"Trønder taxi" or "Norges taxi".
Both taxis and busses
take you through the "Hell" tunnel (named after the
local town "Hell" which actually means "slope" in
Norwegian), but it gives you bragging right of
"having to go through Hell to get here", ;-)
There are direct flights to Trondheim from the
following cities outside Norway as of April 14, 2008:

Note that even from Oslo, Trondheim is a cruel 6.5-8 hr train ride
away. Train tickets run NOK 299 each way of you book early,
whereas you can still find a a plane ticket on Norwegian
(www.norwegian.no) for NOK 362-583 each way from
Gardemoen (Oslo main airport to Trondheim) on May 12
(as of April 14, 2008).

Anne's favorite way to get to Trondheim from the US
is via the direct flight on NW/KLM from Amsterdam to
SAS has connections from the US via Copenhagen, Stockholm
Norwegian and SAS connect up directly to Trondheim from
a number of Norwegian cities, including Oslo and Bergen.
As of April 14, Fly Nordic is now also Norwegian
