Tromso is the gateway to Norway's spectacular northern reaches; above the Arctic Circle seasonal changes in daylight and darkness give way to the Northern Lights in winter and Midnight Sun in summer. See itinerary ideas
As well as these natural phenomenon, the region is famous for the range of outdoor activities available year-round. In winter try snowmobiliing and husky sledding; in summer cruise with Hurtigruten, watch whales in Andenes, one of Europe’s best whale watching grounds and travel to Kirkenes to go on a king crab safari, learn about the Sami and stay in a Snowhotel.
For more unusual accommodation, visit Alta, where the Sorrisniva Igloo Hotel is rebuilt every year from ice and snow and decorated with ice sculptures.
