Discover the Treasures of TromsøTromsø, Norway
Tromsø may be the best kept travel secret in the world. With a population of just over 70,000 people, and nestled beneath snow-capped mountains on the fjordland coast, this Norwegian gem offers visitors all kinds of adventure throughout the year and you can experience it all on Bentours' Tromso Aurora or Tromso Borealis tours.
Over the winter months, the skies above Tromsø light up with spectacular Aurora Borealis displays; and from May to July the sun never sets with another incredible phenomenon, the Midnight Sun. Yet, Tromsø is known for more than just it’s beautiful natural surroundings – it’s also a notoriously lively city.
One fact that you might hear from locals is that Tromsø has more pubs per capita than any other Norwegian town. If you’re a festival-goer, Tromsø hosts the Tromsø International Film Festival and the Northern Lights Festival in January, which attract visitors from all over the world.
There is perhaps no more beautiful way to experience Tromsø than by attending a midnight concert at the city’s iconic Arctic Cathedral. You will get the chance to hear beautiful Norwegian folk songs and hymns inside an impressive architectural building reminiscent of a polar iceberg.
Then there is the range of adrenaline pumping activities that you simply can’t miss! Dog sledding is certainly a favourite with travellers where you venture out into the snow with your husky friends, either as a passenger or a driver of the sled. Other wilderness activities include: hiking, fishing, kayaking and whale safaris.
The choice is yours.
- Whether you visit in the winter to witness the spectacular Aurora Borealis or the summer to bask in midnight sun, it’s going to be epic
- Norwegians know how to throw a wicked party and you’ll love attending their lively festivals and concerts
- Adventure is Norway’s middle name and exhilarating experiences – from dog sledding to whale safaris – abound in Tromsø and beyond
- We hate to break it to you, but Norway is an expensive place. Anything not included in your holiday package – that includes food, bevvies, extracurriculars and souvenirs – are going to weigh on your hip pocket
