This contemporary hotel has the finest rooms in Tromso. Situated quayside on the east coast of Tromsoya Island, close to the city’s spectacular wooden cathedral, the Scandic Ishavshotel’s spacious, superior and recently refurbished rooms offer exceptional views of the harbour. Roast, the hotel’s restaurant, is a delight too, serving an excellent breakfast, a variety of local delicacies, fresh seafood, and wine by the glass – a surprising rarity in Tromso.

Eat

The mood lighting, open kitchen and contemporary décor at the hotel’s Roast Restaurant make for a pleasant dining experience, and there’s enough variety served here to whet and suit every appetite. At breakfast the restaurant offers up a hearty buffet, while for lunch and dinner you can pick from a tempting à la carte menu that features the freshest fish, caught in the fjords around Tromso, as well as locally sourced meat

Sleep

Well appointed Standard and Superior rooms here are lined with funky ‘70s-style carpets but very modern comforts. Some have harbour views, but the best view of all is from the Presidential Suite, a magnificent space offering panoramic vistas, quirky furniture and oodles of style

Do

From the hotel, a stroll along the waterfront leads to the Art Museum of Northern Norway and the Polar Museum, which showcase Tromso’s finest exhibitions. Also close is Tromso cathedral, the world’s northernmost Lutheran cathedral and also one of the only cathedrals to be constructed from timber. The atmospheric Rorbua Pub is en route, so stop by before or after for a different sort of local reverence
