The beautiful city of Tromso or "Paris of the North" was first established as a community on the Tromsoya Island back in the Middle Ages. Unique arctic phenomena can be admired here - midnight sun from May 14 to July 30, the winter total dark between November 25 and January 21 and the magnificent Aurora Borealis. The marvelous natural environment, surrounded by mountains, islands and fjords, offers great opportunities for outdoor activities. The most famous landmark is the Arctic Cathedral, but you can also find here a 13th century church, admire the permanent exhibit on the Lapps at the Tromso Museum or get familiar with various aspects of arctic life and nature at the Polar Museum and Polaria Experience Center. You can enjoy a good meal 420 meters above the Nordic Sea after admiring the city panorama from the Mountain Cable car "Fjellheisen".
