Tromso, Norway

At Tromso, you’re nearly 250 miles inside the Arctic Circle. Clues to your location are everywhere; the bars are fully stocked with Arctic Beer and the Arctic Cathedral resembles a geometric glacier.

Tromso features the Polaria Arctic Center, where the exhibits recreate a polar bear den and an Arctic snowstorm. You might experience them for real from the cable cars that climb Mount Storsteinen.
