Tromsø was the base for many epic Arctic expeditions in the past. It is rich in culture and history. As part of this excursion, you’ll see some of the main attractions of the third-largest city north of the Arctic Circle.
First, we’ll take an exciting cable-car ride up to the Storsteinen mountain ledge, which sits over 1,300 feet above sea level. From the platform at the cable car’s upper station, you’ll have stunning panoramic views over the city and the surrounding islands, mountains, and fjords.
After descending via the cable car, the tour continues to the Arctic Cathedral, the city’s most recognizable landmark. It is a true architectural masterpiece. We’ll also visit Polaria, where you’ll find an Arctic aquarium, seal pool, and an immersive film screen that is 70 feet wide, along with many educational displays. Here, you can enjoy a polar-themed movie and watch the seals being fed.
