Arrive into Tromsø Airport, pick up your rental car and drive to the centre of the town. You then have the remainder of day one plus the whole of day two free to explore Tromso "The Capital of the Arctic" because of its significance in Norwegian commercial history - a lively and beautiful city, packed with culture, history and surrounded by mountains, fjords and islands. There are plenty of museums focusing on regional art, Sami culture and history, as well as polar science. We recommend a short trip by cable car to Storsteinen Mountain, where you can enjoy the view of Tromsø and surroundings. Also worth a visit is the magnificent Arctic Cathedral, a masterpiece of modern architecture.
** if your flight arrives late in the day we can add an extra night in Tromsø.
