Northern Norway Troms og Finnmark TROMSØ

Essential Tromsø: Historial City Walk - Tromsø Budget Tours

  •  /  km From You

Have you ever wondered why Tromsø is called the Paris of the North? And what is it, that makes this place so special?

Join our Historical City Walk to discover the secrets of the City of Tromsø and its century long history! On this tour, we cover the area of Tromsø within the original borders of 1794, from Strandtorget in the south, to Skansen in the north. Already before the city was formally established, there has been centuries of human activity in this area. Especially the last 230 years made Tromsø to what it is today.

In addition to a wealth of historical sites, we will also encounter statues, busts and murals, telling stories of people who crafted their destiny in the Arctic. Tromsø has been significant for the biographies of world-famous characters such as Roald Amundsen, as well as local heroes such as Wanny Woldstad and the polar bear king Henry Rudi.

A visit to one museum which brings their stories even closer to us, is included in the tour, and we will finish at one of the oldest and most authentic bars in town, which reflects the maritime heritage of our city. We might even see a polar bear, or two. But don’t worry, they won’t be hungry – in fact, they are quite stuffed.

This tour is compatible with most Northern Lights tours and on Saturday also with Hurtigruten's schedule.

Contact us by email for group bookings and private tours.

Departure time and place: Wednesday 10.30am (10:30) or Saturday 3pm (15:00) from the tourist information Visit Tromsø at Samuel Arnesens gate 5.
