Tromsø Norway

Why go?

As well as Northern Lights, frolicking whales and astonishing natural beauty, the self-styled capital of the Arctic is a surprisingly cool and lively city too.

Local hotspot

The nearby Lyngen Alps boast some of the most dramatic fjord-side mountains (and ski touring) in Norway.

You probably didn’t know

The town cinema, the Verdensteatret, is northern Europe’s oldest cinema, operating since 1915.

Suggested reading

The late English crime writer Robert Barnard wrote many of his best-known works during a decade living in Tromsø and lecturing at the university. His only novel actually set in the city was Death in a Cold Climate (1980).
