Where to stay in Troms

Sleep in rooms that have been occupied by English lords at the historical Rundhaug Gjestegård, or stay in an exclusive log cabin at Lyngen Lodge.


Hotels in Troms come in all shapes, sizes and personalities. You can expect to find top international hotels, such as Radisson Blu, Choice, Scandic, Thon and Rica Hotels in the larger towns of Tromsø and Harstad. But you will also discover smaller hotels which are memorable for their individuality and convenient locations along the main travelling routes.

Backpackers' lodges and youth hostels

Backpackers' lodges and youth hostels add character and flavour to your Troms travel experience. A comfortable bed is just the beginning. Youth hostels can be found in the cities and towns of TromsøHarstad, Finnsnes (Senja) and in the valley of Skibotn.

Bed and breakfast

Bed and breakfast is a wonderfully eclectic mix of all types of hosts and houses, and this is part of its attraction. By opening their homes and their hearts to travellers who need a comfortable bed a night or two, hosts are like instant friends you meet along the way. You have your own room in the host's house and you are served breakfast in the morning.

Stay in a Norwegian home

Become part of the family in a Troms home. You normally share all domestic facilities with the family. Look out for signs saying "rom ledig" (vacant room).

Holiday homes and apartments

The tradition of a second home in the mountains, by the sea, river, forest or lake is strong Troms. The Norwegian word for holiday home is "feriehus" or "hytte". 

Renting a privately owned holiday home is a great way to be self-sufficient. No two homes are the same, so you are getting accommodation with character as well as comfort. Holiday homes range from simple cottages by the sea to luxurious lodges in the mountains. Some were probably built by their owners; others are architect-designed palaces or simply passed on by the family.

Fishermen's cabins

Originally built as accommodation for visiting fishermen during the fisheries of Lofoten, fishermen's cabins, or "rorbuer" as they are called in Norwegian, are today immensely popular both amongst Norwegian and foreign holidaymakers. The rorbu cabins are of different standard and sizes.

Camp sites

Troms has a well developed network of camp sites. They come in all shapes, sizes and standards. They offer a variety of activities and possibilities. Most of them have facilities for caravans and mobile homes.

Inns, motels and cottages

Inns, motels and cottages offer clean and cosy accommodation with good comforts. They usually have one or two bedrooms, a lounge, a bathroom and a fully equipped kitchen. They are ideal if you prefer to cook your own meals. Larger motels often have facilities similar to hotels.


Always set in beautiful surroundings, lodges are small, intimate and welcoming establishments with between 4 and 20 rooms offering bed, breakfast and dinner. Lyngen Lodge in Djupvik in Kåfjord has a very good standard overlooking the Lyngen Alps.


Staying on at a farm is a great way of getting to know real Troms peolpe and to learn more about the farming lifestyles. Some farmstays offer you the chance to stay in the comfort of a typical Troms rural family home, whilst others offer self-contained accommodation.

You may get to enjoy home-cooked meals, and you will have the chance to join in with whatever is happening on the farm. Depending on the type of farm and the season, you could experience milking, shearing, lambing or harvesting crops and vegetables.

Historical accommodation of special interest

Rundhaug Gjestegård has a history of over 100 years. You can stay in rooms that have been occupied by English lords and several Norwegian kings. The guesthouse has recently been fully refurbished whilst at the same time retaining its fantastic atmosphere. Rundhaug Gjestegård also offers cultural and activity packages.

Fiskarbondens Stue is a protected, restored nineteenth century building. The house comprises a fully equipped kitchen, three bedrooms with a total of seven beds plus one children's bed and two extra beds, and a bathroom.

Lattern Hytteutleie offers accommodation in authentic Art Nouveau style. The house dates from 1924 and was totally refurbished in 1995. Cabins are also available.

Hamn i Senja offers accommodation and adventures in a historical fishing village. Accommodation is in high standard apartments with en suite bathrooms in all rooms. This unique resort has an idyllic maritime location on Norway’s second largest island, Senja.  

Sandtorgholmen Hotell is located on the same place that has been used as a trading post since 1557. The oldest building was built around 1750, and the main house was built in 1910. The main house, which is built in a Swiss chalet style, was built in 1910. All buildings are under renovation and modernisation, and all accommodations will be of very high standard.
