The Gateway to the Arctic
When Roald Amundsen recruited crew for his famous expeditions, he travelled to Tromsø to find men with the skills to survive with minimal means in the icy polar regions. The Arctic hunters and trappers of this northern city fit the bill.
Today, Tromsø is the refined version of itself 100 years ago. There are still some of the most skilled people for Arctic operations in the area, as well as academics investigating climate change and the polar environment. Tromsø is still the ideal Arctic gateway and a natural starting point for many expeditions – like yours.
Enjoy discovering Tromsø before you embark on MS Nordstjernen in the afternoon.
