The most northerly aquarium on the planet, Polaria dedicates its exhibits to the wildlife and ecosystems of Norway's most extreme reaches. Visit the facility, housed in a building designed to resemble ice sheets, and explore its multitude of Artic display tanks. Although the city of Tromso itself is northern, the aquarium offers a special focus on the Svalbard archipelago. Wander the many exhibits dedicated to cold-water creatures, including shoreline dwellers, and stop by the open enclosure to visit its contingent of bearded seals. Afterward, take a stroll through the Arctic walkway portion of the center, which boasts a collection of heavy equipment and gear used in polar exploration. For travelers who use our online itinerary creator, Tromso holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Polaria and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.
