Tromso is often referred to as the capital of the Arctic and serves as the starting point for many Arctic expeditions. Tromso enjoys midnight sun from May 18 to July 26. During this period, the sun is always above the horizon and the city is warmer than most other places located on the same latitude due to the warming effect of the Gulf Stream.

We crossed the Sandnessund Bridge to the mountainous Whale Island and visit the Wilderness center where over 200 husky dogs live, tour the Husky yard, met the dogs and puppies and learned about dog sleds.

We visited the Northern most aquarium, Polaria, an information center focused on the polar regions. The building itself resembles blocks of ice sliding out into the ocean, unique of its own.
