7 Things to Do in Tromso That You Shouldn't Miss

September 30, 2017 Major Galusha

The fjords and mountain ranges of Tromso are simply magical. Here, the northern lights sparkle across the same navy blue sky that's illuminated by the midnight sun. You'll be spellbound by Tromso's enchanting fishing villages, fragrant botanical gardens and crystalline waterfalls. Music is a major part of the Tromso culture, particularly techno and electronic music, which adds some thumping thunder to the city once a year during the annual Insomnia Festival.

Fantastic view of Northern Lights every night bar one. Scenery is absolutely stunning, and everyone is so friendly, Russians come over to Norway to buy Pampers nappies and Norwegians go to buy fuel at third of price

Grotfjord

Reviewed By Adele H - Copenhagen, Denmark

This tiny little village with a lovely beach is about 45 mins drive from Tromsø through lovely landscape. Apart from the beach there is not much to do, but the seclusion and quietness of the area is well worth a half day's trip.

Tromso Botaniske Hage

Reviewed By Ed50_13 - Johnstown, Colorado

I believe it is the northern most botanical garden in Europe if not the world. It was lovely with beautiful flowers and plants of all types nicely done and easily accessible walking through the different levels on nice walking trails.

We visited the tourists information office to get some guide in the search for the best company that did northern light searches. The tourist service was quick and and very helpful but they could just guide us not point at a specific guide company as that would not be correct. Instead we got much good information and went to search on line with the guidance received.

Reviewed By Chokk - Frederiksberg, Denmark

The Tromso Public library and City Archives is an awesome building far from any other buildings on Groennegata. It truly stands out compared to other building both at night time and in daylight. Well worth visiting and if not just for getting the warmth into your body again on a cold day.

Met some friends in the museum on a Sunday, which had free entry (don't know if that's normal?). Enjoyed the art which was pretty varied, arranged on three floors (there was also a lift). There are some nice things to buy in the shop, and...MoreThank you very much for the kind words. And, yes, we are free of charge every day :)

We happened upon this delightful museum full of old photos of Sámi people illustrating their life and culture. We were also interested to learn about Cora Sandel a respected Norwegian author and one time artist. Finally there is an exhibition about our relationship to religion.
