Tromsø : Michelin's recommendations
tromsø is a city-island in the middle of a wide channel between the coast, to the east, and the island of Kvaløya. It is encircled by snow-capped mountains that reflect the strange Arctic light that bathes the sea in sparkling silver and envelops this sublime scenery in a veil. Tromsø’s location north of the Arctic Circle means it enjoys the midnight sun for two months during summer, but from mid-November to mid-January is plunged into darkness, sometimes lit by the Northern Lights.
