Tromso is a port city in Northern Norway. The city has population around 70,000, ranking it the largest above Arctic Circle and the world's northernmost one with population over 50,000. The world's secong largest northernmost town is Alta Norway (population around 15,000).

Tromso (Norway) cruise port

Tromso is famous for its Arctic Cathedral, planetarium and old districts with charming wooden houses. The town is the Norwegian Arctic's tourist and cultural centre, with plenty of cafes, museums and even a brewery with a beer hall to be visited. Remember to see the amazing coastal views from Mt Storsteinen, that is also reachable by cable-car.

Established during 13th century, the town slowly developed as a fishing port with a church. It eventually became the major port for barter trade with Russia. In the 19th century, Tromso became the "Gate to the Arctic" after Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen (both links are to the Hurtigruten ships) used Tromso as a starting point for their European Arctic expeditions. Today, the city is often referred to as "Paris of the North".
