The base for many Arctic expeditions of old, Tromsø is rich in both culture and history. As part of this excursion, you’ll get to see some of the main attractions of  the third-largest city north of the Arctic Circle.  

First, we’ll visit Polaria, where you’ll find an arctic aquarium, seal pool, and an immersive 70-foot-wide cinema screen, along with many educational displays. Here, you’ll enjoy a polar-themed movie, and get to watch the seals being fed.

Next up on the program is the Arctic Cathedral, the city’s most recognisable landmark, and a true architectural masterpiece. 

We'll then enjoy an exciting cable-car ride up to the mountain ledge Storsteinen, sitting 1,300 feet above sea level. From the viewing platform at the cable car’s upper station, you can enjoy stunning panoramic views over the city, as well as the surrounding islands, mountains, and fjords.
