Picture prior to visit made it seem more then it is. Looks great from a distance at night. Not so much up close during the day. It what it is.

I have given 1 for the stain glass window. Was it worth the 10 NOK to see it? No. Just a modern church inside which took me about 30 seconds to see. If I was a spiritual person maybe it would have been different but...More

A beautiful cathedral and well worth the viist. If it is not windy walk over the bridge from the city and this is an experience in itself and nice to arrive at the cathedral.

It was a good walk from the Tromso island up the bridge and back. The cathedral is modern, different, serene and of course, has great views, from outside and within.

My husband and I went here because I was interested to see the Cathedral up close. It was really nice from the outside. If you want to enter, you have to pay. We paid 100 (?) NOK for both of us if I remember correctly...More

We were lucky enough to enjoy a midnight concert in the Arctic Cathederal in Tromso. Visually stunning building inside and out. We enjoyed perfect sound reverberating through the triangular structure. A male vocalist accompanied by a flute player and a pianist using his big black...More

Worth a quick visit to see the beautiful stained glass window behind the altar. Take the bus from the city centre and walk back across the bridge for a great view of the sound.

Check timings before you go. We waited until they opened after doing the cable car tour. Once inside, you pay for admission and church is small enough to look around for no more than 1/2 hr, unless you wanted to stay longer for private prayers....More

Interesting architecture but little else to recommend about a visit. Probably much better to visit for a concert or church services. A band was doing a sound check for a concert of Christmas music that evening while we were there, and the acoustics were impressive.

It is a beautiful building and the organ plays wonderful music. Not really worth the price and not much to see inside. Would only do if the weather is bad outside.

There is a ticket desk at the entrance for tours and concerts. They speak English. Cash only But there is also a website Arctic Cathedral Midnight Sun Concerts where you can book on line with your card.

I believe the port for the larger cruise liners is a short distance away, but not far enough to be a problem. I think there is a small fee for The Arctic Cathedral and the Cable car is not that much further on from there... More
