Tromso is located 350 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle and it is the largest city in Northern Norway. From 20 May to 20 July we can see the midnight sun. And from 20 November to 20 January it is the polar night. It is call sometimes the capital of North because it is the biggest city in in the north Europe. Even if Tromso is located above the polar circle, as the city is on the seaside and thanks to the warming effect of the Gulf stream., never it is very cold there. And you have beautiful days in summer and not too much cold days in winter. I had the chance to have a sunny weather during my three days and a temperature around 16/17 degrees during the day. Definitely it was a city that i wanted to see during my trip.Tromso is moreover know to be one of the best places on the planet from where to observe the amazing phenomenon that is the Aurora Borealis.
The center of the city is located on a island, making the city charming. You have a bridge in one side and and other bridge in the other side. It great because it is forbidden to park a car in the center of Tromso and there are no places for this. So Tromso’s center is very quiet because you have just few cars. The other interesting thing is that we can cross the city and link many part thanks to a underground net work for the car, just under the city. And it is great to cross easily the city. I was the first time that i saw something like that. I discovered shops and food in the area it is a great pleasure to wander on the street an near the harbour. The city is surrounded by the sea.
This city is very modern, clean, and has many activities to offer, from an aquarium and several quality museums to the world’s northernmost botanical garden. I saw this garden and as a connoisseur of plants, i can say that the garden is beautiful with a perfect work and maintain there. So we can see all the plants growing in the arctic area.The artic cathedral is an architectural element to see in Tromso, and it has become one of city’s most striking landmarks.
I wanted to sleep in Tromso’s campsite but finally the campsite was very full, the only campsite in Norway where there were many people. It was a little a pity because i could be just beside the center at the end of the day. However i don’t regret because i’m stayed on a campsite located 20km in the north of Tromso. Just going on on the road in the north. And i can advice this campsite for the location. Along the sea with a perfect view.
