See how lady Aurora uses this Arctic city as a dance floor!
You see, the sun never sets above the Arctic Circle. This makes Tromsø, also known as the Arctic Capital, your playground 24 hours a day!
But of course, Tromsø begs for more exploration than marvelling at the sky.
Just look at the Arctic Cathedral. Enjoy midnight sun concerts here during summer or northern lights concerts during winter.
… or get there by climbing the 1200 stone steps up the Sherpa staircase.
If you like hiking, you’re in for a treat, as Tromsø has a lot to offer.
Choose between hundreds of summits, from family-friendly routes to more demanding hikes.
And enjoy the unique experience from summit to sea.
Thrilling experiences in Tromsø don’t have to involve legwork or lofty heights, though. Just look at how the humpback whales lobtail and leap in the cold waters.
These magnificent creatures have been visiting the region for the last few years. It’s hard to tell if they’ll be back next season, but we sure hope they come to visit so you can see them too. Join a whale safari!
… or race across the landscape on a dog sled led by happy huskies.
Of course, Tromsø isn’t all about nature. As the world’s northernmost university town, it is also a vibrating city full of urban surprises.
Not only will you find a buzzing nightlife, you can enjoy concerts, art exhibitions, and festivals as well.
Why not try local treats such as grilled stockfish, reindeer sirloin, or – if you dare – seagull eggs?
We bet you’ll love it.
Tromsø has achieved the certification Sustainable Destination. Although this does not mean that the destination is sustainable, it does mean that it has made a commitment to work systematically to reduce the negative effects of tourism, while strengthening its positive ripple effects.
