Tromsø Activities

Visit Lapland are proud to be exclusively working with Visit Tromsø to deliver the widest range of Tromsø activities. Nestled in on a island in the middle of a Fjord, the City of Tromsø is a beautiful place to visit at any time of year. In the summer the city remains in sunlight for 24 hours, whilst in the winter the Tromsø Northern Lights regularly dance above the rooftops. Being a thriving contemporary city, Tromsø activities and accommodation is available to suit all budgets, styles and tastes, and is easy to reach with direct international flights.

Tromsø boast an expansive portfolio of pulsating activities that run throughout the day into the night, perfect for those of you seeking an action packed adventure. Start the day off discovering the amazing wilderness aboard a reindeer sled or even on one of the ever popular snowmobile safaris. Or for a different type of experience don’t overlook Tromsø’s unique Polar Park or a one of a kind fishing trip on the famous Fjord Cruise. Then as the sun goes down and the nighttime arrives, a whole new host of experiences become available.

We have an incredible eclectic mix of activities during which you can discover the stunning scenery of the Northern Lights as they light up the nightline sky. You might be chasing the lights on a minibus or an a reindeer sled but one thing will remain the same, the spectacular imagery that the Aurora Borealis create. The brilliant Northern Lights Photograph Excursion from Tromsø will also allow you to to capture those unforgettable memories and the helpful tour guides will show you how to ensure that you get the best shots possible.

Regardless of the type of Tromsø activities that you’re looking to experience, the beautiful city of Tromsø has something for everyone.
