Winter in Arctic Tromso
The mean temperature in January is only -3 degrees Celsius, while one would expect it to be far colder, considering its northern latitude. A few weeks from November to January the sun does not show above the horizon, but it is not completely dark – you will be amazed by the wonderful, Arctic blue light.
Heavy snowfall is a normal feature, even in late spring. The all-time record for snow depth was set on 29 April 1997, with 240 cm (94.5 in) of snow on the ground.
Tromso offers all kinds of winter & snow based activities such as dog sledding, snowmobile safaris & reindeer sledge, but most people visit Tromso in winter to experience the spectacular Northern Lights.
