This morning we will embark on an Arctic Fjord Cruise that takes us around Tromsø seeing the mountains, fjords and islands that surround this city. We will have views of the open ocean, hopefully opportunities to see some wildlife as well as visiting a local fishing village where we will step ashore, explore the fish racks and learn about the fishing traditions. Whilst on board, the guides will share stories and knowledge about local culture, history and nature while on the lookout for wildlife.
This afternoon, we join a local guide and embark on a panoramic tour that will take us through the centre of Tromsø. We will witness a charming blend of old and new, where modest wooden houses sit alongside the modern architecture of this university city. Our guide will give us a true sense of the city who carries the nickname “Paris of the North.” We will drive round the forest-covered island of Tromsø. Cross the Tromsø Bridge which connects Tromsø Island to the mainland, and see the Arctic Cathedral reveal itself on the way over. We will ascend by cable car to the top of Mount Storsteinen to enjoy a bird’s-eye-view of the city and its impressive surroundings (cost of cable car not included).
