Arctic Cathedral

The Arctic Cathedral is a landmark in Tromsø standing at the end of the bridge on the mainland. Its ‘Cathedral’ status is only a nickname, as it is actually a parish church of the Church of Noway. The architecture is quite unique and there is some debate whether it looks like an iceberg, a Sami lavvu or a fish-drying rack.

The church has become a part of the famous tourist pilgrimage walk from the city centre, over the bridge to the Arctic Cathedral, and then up the mountain via cable car to see the wonderful panoramic view of the Arctic landscape.
