Top Things to See and Do
Troms is mostly known for it's nice nature.
Inner Troms is a nice hiking/skiing area, the most popular route goes from Kilpisjarvi (Finnish border) to Bjørnefjell (Swedish border, up from Narvik); typically one week by skis or two weeks by feet.
Senja and Kvaløya (southwest of Tromsø) is nice islands, with lots of fjords, beatiful mountains and even wonderful beaches - water is a bit cold, though. It's particularly recommended to visit Sommarøy/Hillesøy at Kvaløya, if passing by.
Tromsø, with 60k inhabitants, is the biggest town in all Northern Norway. It has an airport, a university and some museums, and is perhaps most well-known for it's pub-life - though with 0.4l of beer costing 50 NOK, you may want to skip that part.
Lyngen, a peninsula right east of Tromsø, has really wild nature, high mountains, landscape clearly carved by glaciers, dumping morains everywhere. It's a paradise for technical climbing, though most of the peaks are accessible just by feet.
Destinasjon Tromsø is a tourist burea with information about Tromsø and Lyngen.
Nordland is to the south, and
Finnmark to the northeast. To the southeast, there is Finnish Lapland. To the far north, there are the Svalbard islands, which is international territority under Norwegian administration. The capital, Longyearbyen, is connected by flight to Tromsø.
