Where to find it
Known as the 'Gateway to the Arctic', Tromso the northernmost city in Norway, lying 350 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle.
What makes it special
Surrounded by mountains, and boasting an incredible view of the Northern Lights for those lucky enough to see them, Tromso is a gem in Norway's crown. Step out of the city and you'll find an extensive untouched wilderness ready to be explored by foot, kayak or dog sled.
How can I experience it?
A select few Arctic cruises that run from Norway to Svalbard will also stop at this fascinating modern Arctic city. Stop here to soak in the culture before heading on to less explored waters further north.
