  • See a different side of Norway in Tromsø

    2010-03-17

    Possessing lush green forests, swooping hills and a deep relationship with the sea, Norway can prove to be an ideal vacation spot for travelers interested in a relaxing place with a cool breeze and beautiful scenery. When visiting the Scandinavian country, visitors might want to take a trek to the largest city in the country's northern region, Tromsø.

    Tromsø is a city in Troms County that has gained a reputation in Europe as a hub for art, history, sophistication, fine food and an active nightlife amidst the omnipresent beauty of the Norwegian countryside.

    As a northern city, Tromsø is home to two unique light-based phenomena - the aurora borealis and midnight sun. From May 18 to July 26, the sun is always above the horizon in the region - a potentially disorienting factor for many tourists. When it is dark, the city becomes a prime viewing spot for the aurora borealis, particularly between early October and mid March.

    The city also boasts the impressive Ishavskatedralen, or arctic cathedral, a stunning triangular church which features one of the largest stained-glass windows in Northern Europe that illuminates beautifully in the sun.
