The church looks great from far away- and is quite pretty looking closely... We found even nice Aquarell paintings from tromsø a regions and met the artist:-) Just careful in case it is snowing/freezing/... the entrance is slippery ;-kr

Very nice place to stop by during the dark winter nights. In contrast to other Lutherian churches in Norway, this one is open for tourists. The entrance fee is 50 NOK. Also check the back side with its colourful mosaic.

The view from outside of the Cathedral is very pretty, overlooking the city. Its 50Nok to go inside the Cathedral, which was quite pricey. Was bit disappointed inside, expected more.

I believe the port for the larger cruise liners is a short distance away, but not far enough to be a problem. I think there is a small fee for The Arctic Cathedral and the Cable car is not that much further on from there... More

On Sundays there are three masses per day. Go to the tourist information in the city centre, and they will advise you. The bus boes from centre over the bridge to the Cathedral. Pål
