This is a great resource for travellers with very helpful and knowledgeable staff. My plans changed when one of my tour operators cancelled my snowshoeing tour and the staff here recommended a different tour for me to take which I absolutely loved and enjoyed possibly more than anything else I did in Tromso. The only thing I would advise is... More

Well sited near the waterfront.The office is very often very busy, but the staff remained courteous and helpful. Fortunately there is a numbered queuing system There is a wide range of trips and accommodation on offer. Even if you do not want anything it is worth a visit just to see what is happening in Tromso.

Since we were free in the morning, the staff recommended us to go for snowshoeing for 2 hours! Luckily they had 2 slots for us! It was fun :)
