Discover the important sites and most picturesque spots in the city of Tromsø on a 2.5-hour historical walking tour with a local guide. See traces of medieval settlement, and explore the vibrant marketplace and fisherman monument. Hear tales of explorers, sealers and polar bear hunters on a guided trip through the Polar Museum then visit the world’s northernmost cathedrals. Finish your tour at Tromsø’s most authentic pub, where dozens of Norwegian microbrews are on tap at an old-school polar hangout.
The tour was exactly as publicised and gave us a great overview of Tromso and the surrounding area, its history and economy. The tour guide's English was great and she didn't shy away from difficult questions about hunting and racial differences. By walking around the city, we got a good idea of where to visit on our own later.
We had a great time with Bernard as our guide. He brought the city to life - through his background and history he was able to share with us the town he fell in love with while at the University. I would highly recommend making time for a Historical City Walk with Bernard!
Wir hatten einen sehr netten deutschen Auswanderer, der uns durch Tromsø und das Polarmuseeum führte. Es war sehr interessant und auch lustig zugleich. Möchte hier nicht zuviel verraten, sonst bucht es keiner mehr. Es ist aber definitiv die 2,5 Stunden wert. Und wenn wir das nächste Mal nach Tromsø kommen, dann ganz bestimmt um den 06. Februar herum...am besten den Touristenführer fragen warum :-
