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.
Basic city tour, but good for orientating oneself for self exploration

Good tour.
Good tour. Walked quite a bit in very cold temps. Museum was interesting, but had very graphic exhibits of how animals were hunted on Svalbard. Some were a little disturbing to see. Cable car to the top of the mountain was extra fun.

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
