BOOKING – BEFORE ARRIVING IN TROMSØ Many of the activities are in popular demand and some of the providers prefer smaller groups, so this makes it important to consider booking the activities in advance. If you find a tour you really like, make sure to get a place booked before you leave for Tromsø and Northern Norway.

BOOKING – WHILE YOU ARE IN TROMSØ Some tours might be full, but there are always other possibilities. This makes it possible to book activities after you arrive in Tromsø. Access the online booking system through computers available at hotels or the Tourist Information Office. If you require assistance, please ask your hotel receptionist or the staff at the Tourist Information Office. The weather in Tromsø is unpredictable. It can change rapidly, from fine and warm to cold and rainy. If you go on a day trip or a longer hike, it is best to be prepared for this change in weather conditions to make sure you have a nice experience. Regardless of the season, clothing must be able to transport moisture away from your body. Consider the conditions and the level of activity on the trip, and dress accordingly, in layers: first a layer of underwear, then one or more intermediate layers and, finally, an outer layer. Multiple layers of clothing enable you to regulate warmth and protection by putting on or taking off garments. (Source: The Norwegian Trekking Association) www.visittromso.no/booking

ARCTIC NATURE

ACTIVE SUMMER IN TROMSØ Given its location on an island surrounded by steep mountains and peaks, it is natural for Tromsø to offer a wide variety of activities for those who prefer heights. We recommend a trip to Lyngen. Here, mountain peaks rising 1833 m directly from the fjord, blue glaciers, cascading rivers, gleaming mountain lakes, deep ravines and black scree are some of the natural attractions. We also offer both Icelandic and the Lyngen Horse - and husky dogs in abundance. Whether you just want to greet them or go out on tour, we offer an activity that is suitable for you.
