Tromso, Norway


Although Tromso is located far north of the Arctic Circle, the North Atlantic Gulf Stream makes its presence known and creates a mild climate. Arctic voyagers often commence their adventures in the city also known by the Norwegians as the 'Paris of the North.' Several highlights of sightseeing tours are the Ice Sea Cathedral, the planetarium and the old districts with beautiful wooden houses. The 'Midnight Sun', disappearing behind the horizon, can be seen from May until July. The Arctic dark dominates between November and January.
