Hotels in Tromso
The city of Tromsø in Norway is known as ‘the capital of the Arctic'. There are signs that the area has been inhabited since the end of the last ice age. It's far enough North to sit within the Arctic Circle, and you can get there with direct flights from London Gatwick Airport. Because of the Gulf Stream, the weather in Tromsø is a little warmer than other towns and cities at the same latitude.
Tromsø hotels suit practically every budget, from guesthouses to chain hotels in the city centre. Luxury hotels tend to be few and far between.
Sightseeing in Tromsø
At the edges of the city, you'll find some of Norway's world-famous fjords. Take a boat trip or go fishing around the island on a local guided tour.
The Arctic Cathedral is Tromsø's most recognisable landmark. It's not technically a cathedral, but the nickname stuck. It has an unusual, modern design, as it was built in 1965.
Tromsø city centre is claimed to have the largest number of old wooden houses of any area in northern Norway. The buildings show off the ‘Empire' style of architecture, and the oldest one dates back to 1789.
Tromsø Cathedral – not to be confused with the concrete Arctic Cathedral – is also the only cathedral in Europe made from wood.
Things to do
Most of Tromsø is on the island of Tromsøya, with the rest of city on the eastern mainland and Kvaløya Island to the west.
Getting to the mainland is easy via the Tromsø Bridge, which was the longest bridge in Europe when it opened in 1960.
Many tourists come to the city to see the Northern Lights, a natural phenomenon around the Magnetic North Pole. Tromsø is conveniently in the middle of this area, so visit in autumn, winter or early spring to catch this incredible event.
Arts and culture
Several festivals take place in the city, such as the Northern Lights Festival of music in late January/early February. July sees the Bukta Open Air Festival come to Tromsø, with international rock bands playing on the beach.
The Tromsø International Film Festival is Norway's biggest, and it celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2014. For families, the Children's Film Festival is something everyone can enjoy.
