The northernmost city you can visit, Tromso is a breathtaking destination to see the northern lights and the midnight sun. The northern lights are one of the most magical things you’ll see in Tromso — and in the world. Tromso, the “Gateway to the Arctic,” has surprisingly mild weather for its location. However, you’re sure to see a lot of snow with the fjords and mountains around, and visible from, the city. This surprising city will defy all expectations.
Things to do in Tromso
The northern lights are visible from September to March, and the midnight sun occurs from late May to late July. These incredible phenomena are one of the most rewarding reasons to visit the city. The Tromso Museum, part of a university, displays the culture of Northern Norway for you to discover. The Arctic-alpine botanic garden, which is the northernmost of its kind, is also a part of the museum, and an interesting visit. There is a buzzing electronic music scene in Tromso, meaning that there are lots of performances that you can happen upon all over the city. Go whale watching in Tromso, where you can book boat tours to take you around. Tromso is also popular for kayaking and hiking if you’re feeling adventurous, and want to get away from typical city activities.
Day trips from Tromso
Though Tromso seems so far away from major cities, the Lofoten Islands are accessible by bus, express boat, or the Hurtigruten (the Norwegian Coastal Voyage) if you want to enjoy the scenery along the way. Visitors head to the Lofoten Islands for the fishing, more views of the northern lights, or the quaint little villages. Nothing compares to the sights you’ll see, as eagles soar over the sea and the snow and mountains take your breath away. If you want to turn it into a longer trip, stay in a Rorbu — an old fishermen’s cabin where you can feast on delicious fish.
When choosing your accommodation in Tromso, you’ll find old wooden houses that are typical in the North of Norway, or modern buildings that sit amidst them. Tripping has a wide selection of rentals for you to pick. Plan carefully, as Tromso is very popular — especially during the northern lights and months of the midnight sun!
Transportation in Tromso
Tromso may sound hard to get to, but it’s accessible by plane, bus, boat or car. Fly into Langnes Airport, which has many connections from other major airports.
