Polaria

It’s hard to miss Polaria, Tromsø’s unique new museum dedicated to everything to do with the Arctic. Designed to look like Arctic ice floes pressed up on land by rough seas, Polaria is located just a few minutes walk from the centre of Tromsø and boasts an Arctic aquarium (complete with bearded seals), interesting knowledge-based exhibits, and an incredible panoramic cinema featuring films on the Arctic wilderness. Afterwards, visit the Arctic Walkway to experience firsthand an Arctic winter storm, a dozing polar bear, the tundra and the aurora borealis.
