Multilingual guides combine an in-depth knowledge of Tromsø's history and contemporary way of life with a fair bit of northern humour as you tour around town. Points of interest along the route include the museums, the cable car and the striking Arctic Cathedral.
Dining varies throughout the year making the best use of seasonal produce. Fresh cod, liver and roe are common in winter, while tasty colefish (saithe) is popular in summer and game, mutton and lutefisk (fish treated with lye) can be found on autumn menus.
The view is a common image on postcards, calendars and brochures from Norway but now you have the chance to witness it for yourself. Standing 421 metres above sea level, with a view across the Island of Tromsø and the surrounding waterways and mountains, the four-minute ride up in the cable car provides a staggeringly scenic panorama.
In summer, this is a favoured location to watch the Midnight Sun, while in winter some fantastic Northern Lights can be viewed. Dinner, banquets, barbecues and cocktails can be organised. You may even meet the local Sami family whose reindeer graze around there.
