About Tromso

Situated right atop the Arctic Circle, the city of Tromso is a major cultural hub in Norway. Regarded as one of the best spots for viewing the Northern Lights, Tromso is flocked by tourists throughout the year. Boasting of a rustic, old-school charm, Tromso is well known for its characteristic centuries old wooden houses that scatter the city. The stunning skyline here, punctured by the greenish blue colors of the aurora for most of the year, is dominated by the stained glass steeple of the famed Arctic Cathedral.

While in Tromso, one must invariably make a visit to the gorgeous Arctic Cathedral. Established in 1965, the Cathedral is one of the most prominent points in the city, and hosts several local concerts throughout the year. Those keen on exploring the history of Tromso can also make their way to the Polar Museum. Tromso is regarded as a hiker’s paradise, and quite rightly so. With over 1200 peaks under its built, hiking and trekking are some of the most popular activities here.

The several Sami villages around the city make a perfect visit for those desiring to explore the local Sami culture, with activities such as sledding, reindeer sledding and fishing offered as added bonuses here. The city is also an ideal visit for all those looking to view the Northern Lights or the midnight sun, with its several peaks serving as amazing vantage points for the same. The weather in Tromso remains cold throughout the year, with lots of rain and snow. The short summers, between May and September, generally remain cool, cloudy and rainy. The rest of the year remains freezing, with temperatures often falling below zero.
