Tromso Sightseeing by private bus/minibus
- Tromso city center: Known as the "Gateway to the Arctic," Tromso is the largest city in northern Norway. Located 217 miles north of the Arctic Circle, it is a popular destination for people wanting to catch a glimpse of the northern lights.
- Arctic Cathedral: Daring in its severity and simplicity, Tromsdalen Church features a mosaic that is one of Norwegian artist Victor Sparre's most prominent works. The design is said to depict God's hand with three rays of light: one to represent Jesus, one to represent woman, and one to represent man.
- Polar Museum: Tromso has long been an important base for many polar expeditions. This fascinating museum highlights the city's seafaring tradition, along with the ships and equipment that were essential for survival on the Arctic sea.
About This Tromso Tour

Known as "The Paris of the North", Tromso is a place where historic wooden houses coexist with modern architecture, and the sky sometimes comes alive with light and magic. Fill your memory card with delightful photos of Tromso's gardens, cable cars, theaters, and brewpubs. Then gaze at the nearby natural wonders and feel their raw beauty steal your breath away.
Discover the secrets of the Arctic Cathedral, which stands proudly at the end of Tromso Bridge.
Designed by architect Jan Inge Hovig, it's given name is "Tromsdalen Church”. But due to its striking glacier shape, the church became known as the Arctic Cathedral as soon as it opened in 1965.
Step inside the Polar Museum, considered one of Norway's ten best museums by many. Located in an 1837 wharf house, the museum showcases Tromso's past as a gateway to Arctic expeditions. Learn about the adventures of Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen, trapper Henry Rudi who killed 713 polar bears, and Wanny Woldstad, the first woman to winter in the Arctic. Then it's back to the harbor where you can explore the city's more modern offerings on your own.
The doctor is out
What many people don't know about famous Norwegian explorer Roald Amundsen is that his mother desperately wanted him to become a doctor. He, however, had other plans. As soon as his mother passed away, 21-year-old Amundsen quit university and set out for a life on the sea, where he became a legend of the heroic age of exploration. Amundsen is recognized as the first person, without dispute, to have reached both poles. Does this make him bipolar? You'd have to ask a doctor.
