Tromso, Norway

Tromso (also known as “The Gateway to the Arctic”) is one of the largest port cities in Norway. Some refer to Tromso as the world’s Northern Lights Capital, which is very fitting as it is one of the best vantage points for witnessing the natural phenomenon that Norway is so famous for. Aside from the natural draw of the Aurora Borealis, Tromso is a great destination for cultural activities and outdoor adventures. Despite being a larger port city, Tromso has an excellent public bus system that can shuttle you around all of its best highlights for a reasonable price. Many of its downtown attractions are easily walkable if you’re only planning to visit the city center.

A country club casual atmosphere can be expected on these lines, as can be elegant accommodations and gourmet cuisine. These cruise lines are a great option for adults looking for a upscale, yet laid back, vacation.

Unique itineraries are often available on these cruise lines, as their small-to-mid-sized ships can visit ports of call that large ones can't get to.

River Cruise Lines

Becoming more and more popular, a river cruise is an immerse and destination-focused vacation experience, on a small and luxurious vessel.

River cruises sail through the inland waterways of some of the world's most interesting vacation destinations (i.e. Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and North America), and provide their guests with a greater opportunity to spend time visiting more unique ports of call than a traditional cruise typically would.

Because the destination is the star of a river cruise, (typically guided) shore excursions are included at no additional charge by many River cruise lines. There are usually many interesting lectures given during the cruise, by experts on the history and culture of the region being visited.

Among the famous rivers that one may take a river cruise on are the Rhine, Mississippi, Seine, Danube, Mekong, Nile, Yangtze, Amazon and Douro.

Things to do near Tromso, Norway

These are just a few of the more popular tourist attractions in Tromso, along with a brief description:

♦ Tromso Science Center and Planetarium

If you are fascinated by science, then you certainly don’t want to pass up the opportunity to visit the Tromso Science Center! This incredible center for scientific research is located on the campus of Norway’s Arctic University and features a planetarium show where you can learn more about the northern lights and outer space exploration. Some of the exhibits are focused on nature, climate, and even the human body. If you’re traveling with children, they can participate in the center’s SKILLS Lab, where kids between 10 and 13 can partake in some fun hands-on activities. Plus, Arctic University has an amazing botanical garden located on its grounds, meaning you can make a whole day of this activity!

♦ Arctic Cathedral

The Arctic Cathedral of Tromso is another popular attraction among tourists (and is even part of an excursion during select Hurtigruten itineraries). This church is so large that you can view it all the way from the Tromso Bridge! Its glass façade and mosaic, along with wooden pews, unique organ, and giant chandeliers, make it an interesting piece of architecture. Whether you visit by day or night (it’s even more beautiful when all lit up), you certainly won’t be disappointed by this beautiful landmark.

♦ Northern Lights/Midnight Sun

Since Tromso is known as the Northern Lights Capital, it only makes sense that the Northern Lights are one of its highlighted attractions! Your best chance of witnessing this once-in-a-lifetime phenomenon is between September and April (specifically between mid-November to mid-January). However, if you’re not sailing between those months, you’ve got the chance to experience the Midnight Sun! Between May and July, Tromso is covered in seemingly unending sunlight, which is an incredible phenomenon in itself! (It’s also a great time to visit if you want to get in as much as possible during your time there).
