The main attraction; Hell - God's expedition sign

Hell is a village in Norway next to Trondheim airport.

While there's very little to see there, except for an annual blues festival in September, it's always fun to get a picture of yourself outside Gods Expedition (freight forwarding office). A great climbing site can be found.


The name Hell stems from the Old Norse word hellir, which means "overhang", "cliff cave". The Norwegian word hell can also mean "luck". The Old Norse word Hel is the same as today's English Hell, and as a proper noun, Hel was the ruler of Hel. In modern Norwegian the word for hell is helvete.
