Discover the wonders of the midnight sun with one of our cruises to the Arctic Circle. See the magnificent beauty of this ice-capped region, where during the summer months the sun barely dips below the horizon even during the night. And then during winter months, the opposite occurs, with the sun almost never appearing wholly above the horizon during the day. This of course makes it one of the most popular places to view the Northern Lights as they illuminate the impressive islands and glaciers that dominate the landscape.
It’s not a completely remote and isolated region though, with many cruise lines paying a visit to the charming city of Tromso. This Norwegian delight is home to the Arctic Cathedral, a renowned landmark that’s home to a stunning glass mosaic. You can also visit the Polaria Museum and Aquarium to learn about local wildlife species including seals. Surprisingly, Tromso also has somewhat of a reputation as a party town – so you’ll find a wealth of bars and pubs where you can let loose. Whereas if peace is what you prefer, take a trip up Mount Floya (either on foot or by cable car) and you’ll enjoy unrivalled views across the city.
The currency in Tromso is the Krone. The time zone in the Arctic Circle varies, but Tromso is 2 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time (GMT +2).
