Driving around Trondheim Airport
The E6 motorway passes Trondheim Airport. This is the major north-south route in Norway, which also runs along Sweden's west coast. As soon as you leave the airport you'll find yourself on the motorway, so make sure you're comfortable with your car and its controls.
