Selbassenget i Polaria i Tromsø

Many polar expeditions and fishing boats have set out from this city. 

The Arctic Ocean and the ice-covered North Cape have undiscovered nature and great riches. Get to meet seals and other Arctic creatures in the educational centre in Polaria and learn more about how animals, humans, fish and plants live together in the polar region. You can see the big picture on a 21-metre wide screen in the panoramic cinema. 

The excursion continues to the top—421 metres above sea level—with the Fjellheisen cable car where there are spectacular views of Tromsø and the surrounding islands, mountains and fjords. You can go for a short walk on the mountain or visit the restaurant at the top. 

Before returning to the Havila Voyages ship, we stop at Ishavskatedralen (the Arctic Cathedral). The architecture of this landmark reflects the Arctic; some people see the cathedral either as an image of the Northern Lights or as icebergs or fishing racks.
