Want to visit the "Paris of the North"? Then fly to Tromsø. Because, even though Tromsø is only the 7th largest city in Norway, it is number one when it comes to nightlife.
Its status as number one for nightlife could be due to more than 10,000 students who attend the university and college. Or is it due to the hospitable and friendly people? It is probably a combination of both.
If you fly to Tromsø you can also catch the city's own symphony orchestra, enjoy beer brewed at the city's own brewery, visit the wooden cathedral, or take advantage of the fantastic opportunities for outdoor recreation.

Visiting Tromsø in the winter or spring is a treat as you can head out of town and test the world-famous Lyngen Alps with big mountain skis strapped to your feet.

Another experience you'll enjoy if you fly to Tromsø is the cable car. It will take you up to a fantastic lookout point. Here you can go for a walk, eat in the café or just enjoy the beautiful views over the city.
