Clearly visible from the town centre, the Arctic Cathedral stands proudly at the end of Tromsø Bridge. Its architecture is pure, minimalist, yet striking; certainly deserving of its Arctic Cathedral moniker. 

The building is even more impressive when illuminated at night, a bright beacon beneath the dark mountains around. We’ll be visiting near to midnight for an exclusive concert just for us. 

Inside, your attention will likely immediately be caught by the eastern wall behind the altar. The whole wall is stunningly decorated with one of the largest glass mosaics in Europe. 

As the candle lights flicker, this elegant church is filled with the sounds of the most beautiful Norwegian folk songs, as well as some wonderfully powerful classical and sacred selections.  

This incredible musical experience is enhanced by the Arctic Cathedral’s fantastic acoustics, made possible by the shape and size of the building. All in all, it’s a moving way to end the day.
