Drop By the Top of the World

Far north of the Arctic Circle, Tromsø is surrounded by a dramatic landscape of snow-capped peaks, scattered islands, and fjords, a scene best observed by taking the cable car up Storsteinen Mountain.

In town the striking Arctic Cathedral mirrors the setting in glass and concrete, its triangular façade representative of an iceberg pointing to the sky.

This part of the country is home to the Sami, Norway’s indigenous people, with their own language, culture, and traditional pursuits of fishing, hunting, and reindeer herding.

Stop in at the Wilderness Center to say hello to Tove and Tore, their children, and more than 100 Alaskan huskies.

A landmark visible from much of Tromso, take in its stunning glass mosaics, prism chandeliers resembling icicles floating down from the ceiling and an impressive steely organ suggesting ice floes.
