Close up view of the Arctic Cathedral in Tromso, Norway
The city's most recognizable landmark is the huge concrete Arctic Cathedral built in 1965. The distinctive structure contains 11 triangles that suggest glacial crevasses and auroral curtains, as well as an impressive, modernistic stained-glass window. The west end of the church is filled with a futuristic organ. Don't miss the Northern Lights Concerts here.
Step in the Fjellheisen cable car for a ride up to Storstein Mountain, 420 meters above sea level. You'll enjoy a panoramic view of the city and the fjord. There's also a restaurant at the top that serves meals based on mouth-watering local produce.
In Tromso, many restaurants also function as cafes and pubs, simultaneously or at different times of the day. Most of the restaurants are located along the main street, Storgata. Cruise to Tromso and try fresh-caught Barents Sea cod with cauliflower and butter sauce, or keep it simple with steamed Arctic king crab. Seek out the comfort factor of rustic fish gratin or the Tromso happy-hour specialty: seagulls eggs with a locally brewed beer.
The main pedestrian street, Storgota, is the best place to go for shopping in Tromso during your Norway cruise. Browse the little shops selling hand-made arts and crafts following old techniques and patterns based on Sami or coastal traditions. Bring home some knitted garments, woven rugs, paintings or prints.
