Where to stay in Tromso

Tromso is a major tourist destination in northern Norway and offers a range of accommodations. In the city center, take your pick from numerous hotels at varying prices and within walking distance to restaurants, nightlife, and tourist attractions. If you've come for the city's main attraction, the northern lights, check out a number of offbeat accommodations that bring you closer to nature. Consider staying in a cabin or fishermen’s cottage near the city, with a fjord or the sea as your backdrop. Alternatively, experience the local culture by renting a room from a family.

  • This contemporary art museum was a real find during our Hurtigruten voyage above the Arctic Circle. And, amazingly, it’s free! We discovered it during a call at Tromso and were pleasantly rewarded. Th...  more »

  • The exhibit, There is No, taught me much about the Sami indigenous people in Norway. No word for Art, yet what artisans they are! Utilizing resources found in nature for tools, bowls and clothing were vibrant and beautiful. Tastefully displayed in a spacious venue of silence. I found myself very engaged with the exhibit. Free entrance and informative brochure and attendees came as a bonus surprise. If only the free coffee machine worked...it would have been perfect to sit and reflect on the emotion. I highly recommend this museum during your trip in Tromso.
  • The museum had a great exhibit honoring the Sami people and their artwork while we were there. The museum was free and a great place to walk around in about 2 hours. Definitely worth visiting if you are in Tromso for a few days!
  • Small museum but no admission fee. Even though it's a small collection but it has a good range of artworks by Norwegian artists from classical to modern art. Would be nice to have a guide or more explanations. Great rainy day activity.
  • Free art museum with a focus on Nordic artists. There's a permanent collection with some Peder Balke and rotating contemporary shows. Worth a visit.
  • Newest exhibition is about art and the lack of a proper word for it in the Sami culture. Some nice pieces on display that exhibit the craftsmanship of the northern people
