Wow, the Fjords are truely amazing. If you can get out amongst them. If you are not in Tromso for long take the cable car up to the top for an epic view.

The fjords around Tromsø shoud definitely be on everyone's bucket lists. If you go in December you are very likely to see whales and orcas enjoying the herring, northen lights, incredible landscapes and meet friendly norwegians.

Most amazing places to see, we rented a car and spend a day driving. Winter makes it unique and barren and give one a different insight into life there. Very few hours to see it in a day and lots of rain, so consider your selve lucky if you get a gap in the weather when it is light.

Beautiful scenery. Definitely worth a look, especially in Winter where the snow over the countryside is a beautiful backdrop to the city.

We travelled by car around the countryside along the Fjords which was a wonderful experience although too shorts as it gets dark very early

Some days ago we experienced the Fjords Excursion by Chasing Lights, starting from Tromso, guided by Marek in a very friendly, professional and caring way. He took pictures, which he provided on the next day via dropbox link, together with a tour description and the route we took. We were able to see Orcas and Humpback whales, reindeer and moose,...

Obviously this is a massive attraction for coming to Tromso, especially in whale season! We stayed in a place called Ersfjordbotn on Kvaløya looking out on to the fjord there in mid november.. and we had a pod of killer whales swimming out there that was could see from our bedroom window... a morning i will never ever forget!

The various Fjords were beautiful. Even though we didn't see any reindeer or moose like we had hoped, the landscape was breathtaking and we spots huge pods of Orcas and Humpback whales from the shore! Even though my family of the 3 would not call ourselves "nature lovers", we ALL really enjoyed the Fjords!

Booked at the Radisson Blu - very expensive 2400 NOK per person. Research for a better way of seeing the whales I would suggest.

Edel was a great host. The drive and the scenery was magnificent. Definitely a must do while in Tromso. Lunch at the arctic hotel was amazing with the most amazing view I've ever had at any meal.
