Tromsø is the largest city in the Nordic countries north of the Arctic Circle. It is a modern city with a population of 68,000. In addition, 10,000 students attend the University of Tromsø, giving the city a youthful and spirited vibe.
Tromsø airport is located just 5 km from downtown Tromsø. There are 12 flights per day between Oslo and Tromsø, which makes the city very accessible from other international airports.
Tromsø is situated on an urban island, between beautiful nature, fantastic fjords and dramatic mountain peaks.
Tromsø is home to the world’s northernmost brewery, cathedral and botanical garden. You must visit Mack’s Brewery, which was founded in 1877 and is the oldest pub in Tromsø.
The city is blessed with the Midnight Sun two months each summer. Despite its latitude, Tromsø has a relatively mild climate. In summer hikers can choose between the easily accessible coastal range and the more challenging Lyngen Alps. Canoeing on tranquil forest rivers, wild bike rides down hillsides, kayaking on blank fjords or on the open sea, fishing trips late at night… Whale-safaris are an option for those wanting to experience something really exotic.
