The Harstad municipality spans across two islands in the Northern county of Troms, as the city itself stands on the largest Norwegian island, Hinnoya. Although the city celebrated its centenary in 2004, the adjacent settlements of Trondenes go all the way back to the Vikings: a famous stone church from Late Middle Ages and the exhibitions within Heritage Centre offer a real journey through time back to the stone age. The streets of Harstad host the North Norwegian Festival of Culture in June. If you come here to have fun and relax, the unique Grottebadet Water Park offers a perfect tropical environment for this - 250 km inside the Arctic Circle. Be sure not to miss a unique experience aboard the world?s oldest sailing schooner, "Anna Rogde," also known as the "sailing queen of Norway."
