What We Love About Tromsø

Tromsø, the northernmost city of Norway, is the perfect place to escape the hustle and bustle of city life. The city’s location, so high up north, makes it one of the best places to view the Northern Lights. Surrounded by the arctic wilderness, every corner of the city is postcard-worthy. As icy as Tromsø may be, seeing those beautiful creatures in the husky sledding experience will melt your heart right away. Get cuddly with the huskies and sled around the alps and take in the vast mountain views. Besides that, of course you can’t miss hunting for the elusive Aurora Borealis, more commonly known as the Northern Lights!
