Awed by the beauty and peace of the Arctic Cathedral! The architecture is fabulous and such a testament in connecting the area and religion.

The church was nice, but I think the price is overrated to go inside. Churches are a place of worship and should be free of charge

The Arctic Cathedral can be seen across the water from the main city area of Tromso. It is a beautiful building . A walk across the Tromso Bridge will take you to the Arctic Cathedral .

Absolutely not to be missed. Quite expensive for 30mins but typical Norway and no regrets. The music was so beautiful. Enchanting.

We went to a mid night concert in June so we were able to see the place in daylight. It has the appearance of several lumps of concrete propped against each other. That said it has produced excellent accoustics.

If you do not have time to explore inside, take a good look from outside. The architecture is beautiful.

It’s expensive (50NOK per person) to visit a church and see a very nice stained glass window - A big part of which is covered by the white backdrop of the alter. The architecture is impressive but can be appreciated from outside. The staff refused...More

Stopped briefly at the cathedral for photos. Neat architectural design. Could not go inside the see the stained glass windows because of a funeral in process.

From a purely aesthetic perspective, this Parish Church displays interesting modern architecture from the outside and a beautiful mosaic stain glass appreciated inside, but not much more to take away beyond that as a visiting tourist. A little less that a mile walk from the...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
