Getting around Tromsø

The city of Tromsø is very centralized and visitors will find that most destinations are a short distance away.

Getting to the Hotel

The distance from Tromsø Airport to downtown is just under 6km. The airport bus (flybussen) offers quick service to the hotels The Edge, Scandic Ishavshotellet, and Radisson Blue. Taxi and municipal bus service are also an option (the 42 bus stops just down from the airport arrivals hall).
Those arriving by boat, will find the hotels (all of which are in the city center) a short walk away.
