“We had a very personal experience with our guide Lionel and he was very informative. He told us a lot about Tromso and the northern lights and we felt like we knew the city a lot better afterwards. Highly recommend!»

Tromsø is the Gateway to the Arctic. It has the most Northern Lights in the world, 2 months of Midnight Sun, a lively, colourful downtown rich in Arctic history, and is surrounded by the drama of the Lyngen Alps, blue fjords and hundreds of islands. It is also a surprise mere 2000 kms from the North Pole!
At a latitude of nearly 70 degrees north, four days of sailing from Bergen and a two-hour flight from Oslo, Murmansk or Longyearbyen, rests the capital of Northern Norway at the same latitude as Alaska and Siberia. The gateway to the Arctic is situated between islands, fiords and mountain peaks in the most spectacular of Arctic scenary.
A century ago, visitors were surprised to find culture, intellectual life and the current fashions so far north, and the city derived it´s other nickname, Paris of the North. That reputation lives on today. Visitors to Tromsø are charmed by the city’s patriotic, loud and obliging residents, by a historical, compact and characteristic town centre, and by a lively and active cultural scene all year round. They also come for the Northern Lights, Polar Nights and the Midnight Sun in the summer. Tromsø´s excellent attractions also include the wildly varying weather and the ample opportunity for experience - based travel.
