Tromso, Norway

May 11, 2018 - National Geographic Explorer


As we head north, today was our final day in Norway before we cross the Barents Sea to reach a gem of the Arctic Ocean: Bear Island. We spent our morning visiting the gateway to the Arctic, Tromso, where you can visit a modern cathedral and two important museums: The first focuses on natural history; the second tells the story of polar exploration and the two famous Norwegians explorers, Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen.
