Known as the capital of the Arctic, Tromsø is a stunning city that’s surrounded by mountains, fjords and islands. The city’s winter scene is bustling. Expect lots of snow this time of year—perfect for skiing, snowboarding, snow shoeing and dogsledding.
If you’re visiting in December, January, February or March, Tromsø is a great place to see the Northern Lights.
If you’re into museums, check out the Polar Museum and Tromsø Museum. Stay at the Clarion Post Bryggen and grab a bite at Arcantandria and Aunegården.
