High in Norway’s frozen north lies a beautiful waterside city that sits as a wonderful place to explore fjords, mountains and tundras. The city of Tromso has plenty to offer with its striking beauty and excellent outdoor activities.

Tromso is a wonderful destination all the year around, with things to do and see in both summer and winter. In the summer, you can experience the wonder of the midnight sun. We recommend the winter though for excellent snow sports and the northern lights.

Winter is an amazing time to visit Tromso, but you need to make sure you are prepared. The average winter temperatures range from -5°C to -15°C, although it can reguarly slump to -30°C, so thermal winter clothes are an absolute necessary. Fortunately, there are rental options available around the area.

It is easy to get to Tromso the year around there are direct flights from Oslo as well as other Norwegian and European destinations. Many flights to other European destinations are seasonal so make sure to check your preferreed route.
