Sport and recreation

Holidays in the Tromsø region can be as active or relaxing as you wish. Whether you are seeking sport, recreation or relaxation, there are many options to suit young and old alike. 

You can take part in sporting activities such as golf, tennis and bowling or head to Tromsøbadet, an oasis just outside downtown Tromsø with outdoor and indoor pools, water slides, jacuzzi and more. Swimming in a heated outdoor pool while taking in the view of the surrounding mountains does wonders for body and soul. 

If you enjoy climbing, you can visit the city’s climbing centre at the same complex. Climbing is a wonderful way to relax, and you can literally go all the way to the top! 

The floating sauna Pust and the old fishing boat Vulkana, which has been transformed into an Arctic spa, are also extremely popular options for visitors and locals alike. The atmosphere in a glowing sauna is wonderful and, if it gets too hot for you, you can jump straight into the icy fjord before rushing back into the sauna to warm up again. 

The Tromsø region offers a wide range of sporting and recreational opportunities – all year round. Select from the options and then it’s time to explore, do and enjoy!
