#48 Visit Tautra


The weather should not stop you enjoying the outdoors, but it’s good to have a plan. Tautra is a wonderful small island connected to the mainland by a narrow stone bridge, a 1.5 hour drive from Trondheim (or a thrilling RIB boat ride!). Here, you can visit the Klostergården restaurant and inn, beer brewery and Whiskey distillery, and the small shop where you’ll also find a wide variety of jams and compotes from the island’s fruit and berry production. When the rain clouds part, you can venture outside and visit the ruins of the 13th century Monastery as well as the modern Maria monastery, where you can buy their handmade soaps and lotions. Ideal for a day trip or even a wet weekend!
