  • Very modern Cathedral, which has a peaceful atmosphere. No excessive decoration. Beautiful organ of entrance fee of 50NOK is not adequate, it is a House of worship and should be accessible to everyone on Sunday admission is free

  • Nordlystkatedralen is great nice, take the opportunity to sit down with a stun, and indulge in the environment or take the opportunity to grab a snack in the Café.

  • Totally unique. Loved it. Fabulous welcome and a wonderful service the morning after some friends were married in the Chapel at the Igloo Hotel in nearby Sorrisniva. We were invited for an impromptu tour of the Katedralen and got to see the work in progress for the Northern Lights experience they are going to install here. I loved the fact that the entrance to the cathedral faces straight down towards the University and not towards the traditional compass direction. It's quite magical, and this is coming from someone who loves carved stone buildings... The statue of Christ at the Communion Table really is a powerful evocation of His Presence and the focus of the life of the Cathedral is Christ, led by the Father and then out to the community...
  • Modern and nice architecture. Don´t expect the magnificence of a gothic cathedral, though.
  • Must see place.
  • Very enjoyable
