About Tromso, Norway

Tromso, the home of the famous Northern Lights Observatory, is beautifully situated on a forest-covered isle. Take a leisurely island drive and visit the Tromso Museum and an ultra-modern cathedral, whose design was inspired by the ice of the Arctic. Again, the preservation of old ways and integration with present-day technology is remarkable.

This was a fun port. We took a cable car up the mountain for spectacular views. We saw the northernmost Catholic Church in the world. We took a picture of the 'Northern Lights' at the Arctic Cathedral. It was the only way we could see and have a picture of them.

We went on our own again and toured the town, went up the funicular walked a lot around up top and headed back down to tour the city.

We did not partake of a short excursion, but went to the stunningly beautiful Alpine Botanical Garden and several museums. There's no reason to waste time or money on a shore excursion in Tromso.

I i took an nature excursion to a nearby Island (Whale Island). The weather was poor, but the excursion that took us by the location of the bombing of the Tirpitz, walking on tundra, picking blueberries and cloud berries was fun. Scenery would have been great in better weather.

Not very interesting port of call but some places of note, although rather spread out eg Polaria; planetarium & Northern Lights experience; botanical gardens; the Arctic cathedral.
