Tromsø – where nature and culture go hand in hand
Tromsø is located 350 km north of the Arctic Circle and is the largest city in Northern Norway. In the early 1900s Tromsø was the starting point for expeditions to the Arctic. Hence its nickname: “Gateway to the Arctic. Today it is a modern city with many activities on offer, from an aquarium and several quality museums to the world’s northernmost botanical garden. The city is also a popular place to observe the majestic phenomenon of the northern light.
For the outdoor enthusiasts, Tromsø city centre is conveniently located just around the corner from seemingly untouched wilderness, which offers many opportunities for activities such as hiking, fishing, kayaking, dog sledding and whale safaris. The city is known for its lively night scene and a range of restaurants specialising in the fresh ingredients of the Arctic. Tromsø’s multi-cultural community, featuring more than 100 nationalities, does its very best to whet local palates, and there is no shortage of new eateries based on local food.
