Customer reviews

Your Destination

Tromsø is situated in the centre of the Northern Lights zone and is, therefore, among the best places on earth to observe this natural phenomenon that has been drawing visitors for decades. 

Gateway to the Arctic and the capital of northern Norway, Tromsø also has many cultural sights and excellent restaurants guaranteeing you an exciting stay. Visitors to Tromsø are often surprised to find such a vibrant and cosmopolitan city so far north – here you are a staggering 320 km inside the Arctic Circle!

Tromsø is the home to the world’s northernmost University, Beer brewery, Cathedral, Glassblowing hut, Botanical Garden and Electronic Music Festival. The city is surrounded by snow-topped peaks and glass-like lakes, providing spectacular scenery and great skiing, with evenings often bathed in the glow of the Northern Lights.

In wintertime, rides in reindeer-driven sleighs, dog sledding, ice fishing and snowmobile trips followed by a traditional Sami meal in a lavvu or Sami tent will provide life-long memories.
