The Capital of the Arctic.
Tromsø is known as “The Paris of the North”, partly because of the surprising number of high quality restaurants, clubs, hotels and other establishments that make this city – just over 1000 miles from the North Pole – a favorite for many who come from near and far to experience the combination of nature and exciting northern city life.

Business is Booming
Business is booming in the Tromsø region. As Gateway to the Arctic, the geo-political map is changing and the city is seeing an influx of business related to telemedicine, energy, fishing and aquaculture, satellites and of course the all-important research and development activities that will help pave the way to increased quality of life as we move toward the middle of the 21st century.
Gateway to the Arctic
There are few areas in the world that will equal the importance of the High North during the next century. With climate change and a greater understanding and emphasis on the environment, the High North represents a strategic priority area – politically, related to research, and within business as the focus increases on the sustainable management of the rich fisheries and energy resources with the region.
The seas lying to the North of Tromsø represent the future – and the city of Tromsø is working with
the Norwegian government, business, research, education, and others to ensure the best possible
future in the High North.
