Tromso - Welcome to Paris of the North
Tromso, also known as the "Paris" and "Ishavsbyen", is the largest city in northern Norway. This is a wonderful destination for both summer and winter. Midnight Sun and Northern Lights are two key words that describe Tromso well.
Long bright summer evenings that never end are in stark contrast to darkness. This is undoubtedly the shape of those who live here. One should look long for finding a more vibrant people in a more vibrant city - year round!
Midnight Sun and Polar Night

Dark time in Tromso goods from 25. November 17. January but the mountains around town Tromsø makes the sun does not shine there in the period of 22. November 20 January. From ancient times was 21.januar considered the "sunny day" in Tromso. If the weather was good you could see the sun shine on the church steps. This is a day that is still celebrated around the Tromsø, and it served sun buns several places in town.
Even when it is polar in Tromsø is not completely dark there. The sky colored by lights and colors, and if you are lucky you can see the northern lights shimmer across the sky.
Arctic Cathedral is one of Tromso's main landmarks. The church is a church located in Tromsdalen. It is architect Jan Inge Hovig who stood for the design of the church, and the shape is said to be inspired by rock island Håja. We recommend inserting a trip to Sommarøya located barely about 6 mil outside Tromsø. From Sommarøya you have a great exquisite including the Håja.
We also recommend a trip to Kvaløya, where you can, among other things, join in a fantastic fishing trip out to Sandøya.
