How to Spend 2 Days in Tromso

How to Spend 2 Days in Tromso

A 2-day trip to Tromso offers the chance to fully explore the sights of this historic Norwegian city, get out onto the surrounding fjords, spot wildlife, and maybe even see the northern lights. From husky sledding to warming up around a campfire, here’s how to spend two days in Tromso.

Day 1: The City and the Fjords

**Morning:**Spend your first hours in Tromso getting your bearings and sightseeing. Guided walking tours take you to landmarks such as the Arctic Cathedral and Polar Museum while filling you in on the history of the city and the many polar explorers, hunters, and adventurers that have passed through it.

**Afternoon:**Spend the afternoon taking in Tromso’s landscapes and abundant wildlife with a fjord cruise aboard a classic wooden boat. Look out for seabirds (puffins and sea eagles), dolphins, pilot whales, and more. Tours typically serve passengers soup, made with freshly caught seafood, to keep warm.

**Night:**If visiting between November and March, it's possible to embark on a northern lights tour. Bus and boat tours are led by experienced guides who know the conditions and viewing spots best. If visiting in summer, make the most of the midnight sun on a catamaran cruise through the fjords.

Day 2: Whale Watching and Dog Sledding

**Morning:**From November through February, whale watching tours take you into the fjords to look for orcas and humpback whales making their way around the islands. Tours are offered by catamaran or by rigid inflatable boat. Outside of whale season, experience indigenous Sami culture on a reindeer sledding, feeding, and culture tour.

**Afternoon:**Spend your afternoon mushing across the tundra on a husky sledding tour. Tours from Tromso take you to nearby husky farms where you can get acquainted with the dogs before embarking on an adventure, zipping across the icy wilderness in a sled.

**Night:**Whether it’s winter or summer, round out your Tromso visit with a campfire. In winter, tours lead you on snowshoe through frosty forests to a warm campfire. In summer, a beachside bonfire keeps you toasty as you soak up the glowing midnight sun. Tours typically include food and drink.
