Where your Arctic adventure begins
Tromsø is the capital of Norway's high north and home to 70,000 lively inhabitants living on the edge of the Arctic in a spectacular setting between islands, picturesque fjords and dramatic mountain peaks. Situated at 69 degrees north, 350 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle and only 2,000 km from the North Pole, visitors are amazed to learn that our city has hotels of international standard, busy cafés, restaurants serving world-class seafood, an active cultural life, a very active night life and captivating museums and art galleries. In summer, the sun shines round the clock during the Midnight Sun season, from 22nd May to 22nd July. In contrast, the sun does not rise above the horizon as we experience the Polar Night, from 21st November to 21st January. Tromsø boasts some of the highest levels of Northern Lights activity on earth, making it the perfect destination to spot the magical Aurora Borealis, which is visible in the Tromsø region from September to March.
Tromsø was in the 19th century the starting point for Arctic hunting and expeditions to the North Pole. Today it is a center for educational and research institutes, including the world's northernmost university.
