Nidaroy nature reserve, Trondheim city

The river Nidelva runs through the heart of Trondheim city. The river and its banks form an area, called Nidelvkorridoren. The small area downstream at Nidaro has rich vegetation and animal life: salmon, trout, seatrout and other fish, beaver, badger, fox and other animals, and a large variety of bird species, both stationary and migratory.

The narrow strips of land on either side of the river are partly inaccessible and may be viewed from a distance. You will find patches of old forest, overgrown with lichen, fungi and moss. All of this right in the city centre. Nidelvkorridoren with its wildlife has been recognized as an area of regional and national importance.

"A nature reserve (natural reserve, bioreserve, (natural/nature) preserve or (national/nature) conserve) is a protected area of importance for wildlife, flora, fauna or features of geological or other special interest, which is reserved and managed for conservation and to provide special opportunities for study or research."
