Join us on this picturesque sightseeing tour of Tromsø and explore the two major attractions of “the Capital of the North”; The Cable Car and the Arctic Cathedral.
Embark on this panoramic discovery that will take you through the centre of Tromsø. A charming blend of old and new, where modest wooden houses sit alongside the modern architecture of this university city. Our experienced guide will give you a true sense of the city who carries the nickname “Paris of the North”.
Drive round the forest-covered island of Tromsø. Pass Lake Prestvannet where the Northern Lights Observatory is situated and see the northernmost university in the world. Cross the Tromsø Bridge which connects Tromsø Island to the mainland, and see the Arctic Cathedral reveal itself on the way over.
The Cathedral’s ultra-modern structure symbolizes the immense strength of the pack ice on the Arctic Ocean. As you step inside, take time to admire the beautiful stained-glass window covering the eastern wall, depicting the return of Christ.
Ascend by cable car to the top of Mount Storsteinen to enjoy a bird’s-eye-view of the city and its impressive surroundings. Enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and try the famous Norwegian Waffles while watching the stunning view of the Arctic landscapes.
