SEE & DO
The time of white silence.
During the winter months, you can explore the Tromsø region with its mountains and fjords. There are several possibilities for the independent explorer, or book an adventure with one of the local tour operators. Husky ride, whale watching, experience the Aurora borealis, snowshoeing, cross country- or randoneeskiing. There is something for every budget and interest.
Experience the summer nights in northern Norway, when the sun never sets! Enjoy the midnight sun and the fabulous view from Tromsø from the nearby ”Fløya” cable car. Summer is a great time to go on day trips in the Tromsø region, to the white coral beaches of Sommarøy, or on a mountain hike. The Lyngen alps can be reached within a few hours. Or maybe you are travelling til Tromsø to participate in one of summer sports events, like the Midnight sun marathon or Tromsø skyrace?
Dont forget a visit to the expanding arctic-alpine botanical garden with a stunning collection of alpine plants.
Don`t miss the opportunity to experience the seasonal attraction of whale watching in Winter. During the past years, hords of killer- and bucklewale have come into the nearby fjords, hunting for the herring. Watch them from land or go on a whale watching tour with one of the local tour operators.
On clear dark nights, you can experience the magic of the Aurora right off the apartments doorstep, on a tour in the surroundings on your own, or with a local guide. A great spot from where to catch a glimpse of the Aurora is on top of the ”Fløya” cable car, just a 10 minute walk from where we are situated.
Tromsø is the cultural capital of northern Norway, and a variety of cultural activities draws artists and visitors from Norway and abroad throughout the year. It all starts with TIFF – Tromsø Internation Film Festival in January, and shortly after that the Northern lights music festival takes place. Further festivals are Bukta festival in Juli, Riddu Riddu (indigenous peoples festival) in July, Tromsø jazz festival in August, Rakettnatt end of August, and for those into electronica, the Insomina festival may be of interest.
Tromsø has 2 cinemas, several pubs and restaurants, a local jazz club with regular venues, a modern library open to the public every day and a symphonic orchestra. In addition to several museums like the Polar museum and the Polaria, a visit to the wooden church in the city centre and to the arctic cathedral is a suggested activity during your stay.
