Get ready for an unusual start to your tour of Mack Bryggeri, long known as the world’s northernmost brewery. Actors will meet you at the pier and lead you on a 30-minute theatrical stroll through the south of Tromsø’s city center to the brewery.

Mack is still family owned and produces a range of Arctic beers. It is one of Norway’s largest brewers, so there is no one better to guide you through the city’s streets and heritage than the brewery’s founder from 1877, Ludwig Mack.

The actors will bid you farewell at the brewery, where you’ll tour the old venue (Mack’s main brewery moved to bigger premises in 2012). Learn all about Mack’s history and the brewing process, then visit the microbrewery and sample the crafts beers they still brew right there.

After the brewery tour, you can choose to continue your brewery education at Mack’s brewpub Ølhallen. It’s Tromsø’s oldest pub and has 72 Norwegian beers on tap.
