SAS pilot Jon Fredrik’s Tromso

Chief Pilot Jon Fredrik Løvberg’s favorite city is Tromso. “I love it in summer when the midnight sun lights up the ­fantastic mountains ­surrounding the town. Or a beautiful ­winter’s day with the Northern Lights dancing in the sky.”

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.

Trek 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.

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.

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.
