SAS pilot Jon Fredrik’s Tromso
Take the Fjellheisen cable car
Across Tromso Sound from the town center is Tromso Cable Car. It’s a simple walk across Tromso Bridge and then a four-minute ride to the top – 421m above sea level. You get stunning views of Tromso and the surrounding area, as well as a great starting point for a longer mountain hike across Fløya and up to Tromsdalstind.
This is an iconic mountain southeast of Tromso. It is quite a demanding trek but worth the effort when you finally reach the summit and take in the 360-degree view. Don’t forget to bring something to drink and some energy snacks. And good shoes! From the peak you can see the golf course to the east and the Lyngen Alps.
Golf course with a view
The most northerly 18-hole golf course in the world is at Breivikseidet. The fantastic location makes it difficult to concentrate on your game, so you can always blame a poor score on the stunning views.
Tromso Golf Club
A good place to relax
The sauna on the 10th floor of the Radisson Park offers amazing views across Tromso Sound towards Ishavskatedralen (the Arctic Cathedral) and Tromsdalstind. Perfect after any of the three outings above and before you head to Skarven for a bite to eat.
Radisson Blu Hotel Tromso
An iconic restaurant
Skarven Kro has a fantastic, informal atmosphere. A steaming hot bowl of fish soup with a delicious local something in your glass – it’s the perfect place to round off an eventful day.
