On this tour we take you on a walk around the small city centre of Tromsø that has been founded in 1795 on the island of Tromsøya. The city, which was also called the Gateway to the Arctic, has been throughout history the start for several Polar Expeditions.
Our experienced guides will meet you outside our offices located in Storgata 77, Tromsø at exactly 12:00; from here they will take you on a guided walk along the pier.
After this short walk the group arrives at the unique Polarmuseet and Skansen area. The tour continues with a guided walk along Storgata (the pedestrian street), the Market Place, the Catholic and Protestant Cathedrals, Roald Amundsen monument and the Mack Brewery.
After this second city walk the group will arrive at the Polstjerna; one of the last vessels hunting seals in the Arctic Ocean until the year 1981.
At around 14:30 our tour finishes and you can choose whether to enter the Polaria aquarium which is right next to the vessel (entrance not included), or you can walk back to the center.
