The gateway to the Arctic

Discover the bustling city of Tromsø and its Arctic history, rich culture, modern cuisine and unspoilt surroundings. Here you’re sure to find plenty of winter activities that suits you, whether you are an adventure seeker, a nature lover, or a romantic couple.

Tromsø is the largest city in Northern Norway. With a location at nearly 70° north, and between fjords, mountain peaks, and islands, it is a prime starting point for your Arctic adventure.

The city is situated in the middle of the auroral oval, the area with the highest probability of seeing the northern lights. Combine your northern lights excursion with a wide range of exciting daytime activities such as dog sledding, whale watching, snowshoeing, and snowmobiling, or try for a selfie with the reindeer and huskies in the surrounding nature.

The steep mountains and beautiful fjords are so close to the city centre that you can admire them from the main street. It is also possible to spot sea eagles and playful seals just a 30- to 45-minute drive from downtown Tromsø. Don’t feel like driving? There are several transport alternatives making it easy to get to Tromsø and around.
