Settled on a small island surrounded by rugged fjords and mountains, which have been carved out by the winds and the snow over millions of years, Tromsø is like no other place on this earth. The northernmost city of its size, it’s able to cater to a wide range of interests while maintaining its charming small-town feeling.
   With the largest collection of classic wooden houses situated in the historic centre of the city, this is a great place to start your own exploration. Stroll through the cosy little park of Kongeparken, past the old cathedral and down to the harbour-front. Used as a base by explorers like Roald Amundsen and Fritjof Nansen, visit the Polar Museum for the fascinating history behind their expeditions and how Tromsø has been an important Arctic settlement for centuries. The city has more than doubled in size over the last 50 years, and this means that today you’ll find various things of interest lurking around every corner. See the northernmost botanical gardens in the world or spend a few hours in the Northern Norway Art Museum for artistic impressions and interpretations of the wild landscape that cradles the city.
   If you want to experience the Arctic for yourself, then start by taken the cable car known as Fjellheisen to the top of Mount Storsteinen. Here you can gaze across the numerous white peaks and fjords that surround the city, and of course, from this viewing platform you also get the perfect panoramic view of the city below. On your descent from the mountain, visit the modernist Arctic Cathedral, before seeking out a boat tour that will take you beyond the city and out onto the deep blue sea. Spot a humpback whale or a wide number of other marine life and experience nature at its most serene. Visiting Tromsø during the colder months of the year, will also open up the possibility to experience the truly awe-inspiring imagery of the Northern Lights. Only visible during a clear night, this celestial phenomenon is a wonder like nothing else and a true bucket list sight.
