Car - Ørland to Vanvikan
Boat - Vanvikan to Trondheim
Train - Trondheim to Røros
My mom lives in Ørland Kommune so going to other places is not that easy because you always have to consider the schedule of the ferry boat. As I mentioned in my previous post, Ørland is almost surrounded by water such as Norwegian sea, Trondheimsfjord and Stjørnfjord so most of the time people need to travel by boat to reach other places. It is either a passenger boat or RoRo. I guess, it is like living in Visayas, if you want to go to other provinces you need to ride boat or airplane.
There are different seaports within the area so you just need to check their schedule. When we went to Røros last Holy Week, we left as early as 6AM so we can catch the 8AM ferry boat in Vanvikan port. It is more than one hour drive from the house but we did not notice it because of the beautiful scenery.

We can ride the ferry boat in Ørland too but just to be safe, we went to Vanvikan para hindi kami magahol sa oras. From Vanvikan port, we ride the ferry boat to Trondheim, travel time is less than 30 minutes.
Ørland to Trondheim is 1 hour ride
Vanvikan to Trondheim is 25 minutes
From the port, we walked to the Trondheim train station. It is a long walk especially if you have luggage with you. We waited at the lobby then at 9:20AM we went to the boarding station for our 9:45AM train ride.
We rode trains in other countries but this is our first train ride in Europe so I’m a little bit excited. My mom only bought the standard ticket so we don't have a table at the middle. If you want coffee, there is a small coffee vending machine inside the train.
Travel time from Trondheim to Røros is 2 hours and 30 minutes. The travel time is so long but I enjoyed the ride because of the stunning view, ang ganda talaga, pangpost card. Habang tumatagal, paputi ng paputi ang daanan.
