Arrival in Tromsø, make your way to the Thon hotel Polar, this modern hotel is located in the centre of this beautiful arctic city. Tromsø, is home to the world’s northernmost university, brewery and cathedral has two special “nicknames”: it is known as ‘Paris of the North’ - due to direct trade connections with France during the 19th century- and as “the Gateway to the Arctic”, because for many decades this city has been the centre for arctic hunting and the starting point for the most famous Arctic expeditions.
