Tromso has long been an important base for many polar expeditions, and the Polar Museum exhibits and presents this polar seafaring tradition. At the museum you’ll meet the courageous men and women and the ships and equipment that were essential for life both on the sea and in the Arctic.

After approximately 30 minutes you’ll reach Tromso Wilderness Center, owned and run by a couple completely dedicated to their dogs.

You’ll also be shown the equipment they use and of course have time to admire the beautiful husky dogs.
