Tromso Tromso Highlights Tour Excursion Reviews

The city of Tromso encompasses a wide swath of land in Norway, so getting around from sight to sight can be time-consuming. Opt for a highlights tour to ensure you don't miss important attractions like the Arctic Cathedral and Polaria Aquarium.

It was raining all day in Tromso so we were glad that we had booked this tour. It made getting around to the sights much easier. We also visited Tromso earlier in the day using a shuttle bus and it wasn't that great an experience as it was a Sunday and raining and very little was open. Seemed like a nice city though. We enjoyed the cable car experience and the visit to the Arctic Cathedral. The museum is a little small but it is quite interesting. There was a religious exhibit but unfortunately it was not pre-Christian. I loved the big bellied Christ though - have never seen Christ depicted that way before. Read Less

We did the highlights of Tromso in the morning and were shown why there is little traffic at street level. Amazing underground road system even having round-a-bouts. Once again a fantastic guide.

Too long at Museum and too crowded with three buses at once. Had to stand for over an hour on steep slope at cable car because 6 buses arrived at once all from Princess. Got ten mins at top to take in spectacular views before queueing to get back down and then only 10 mins to see outside of cathedral. Very disappointing. Avoid the excursion but do each of the sights under your own steam using local transport or shanks' pony Read Less
