Travel and Venue Information
Tromsø is located 217 miles north of the Arctic Circle and is the largest city in Northern Norway. From September to March many people come to Tromsø to see the northern lights. From 20 May to 20 July the midnight sun makes it possible to do as the locals and participate in various activities around the clock. In general, Tromsø has a mild climate for such a northerly destination because of its seaside location and the warming effect of the Gulf Stream.
The city is known for its lively night scene and a range of restaurants specialising in the fresh ingredients of the Arctic. Tromsø’s multi-cultural community, featuring more than 100 nationalities, does its very best to whet local palates, and there is no shortage of new eateries based on local food.
Human settlement in the Tromsø area dates back thousands of years, though the city itself was founded only about 200 years ago. Tromsø soon became the center for trapping in the Arctic region, and in the early 1900’s it was the starting point for expeditions to the Arctic. Hence its nickname: “Gateway to the Arctic”.
