Full description
Venture through the city center of Tromsø with a professional guide and learn about the city's rich culture and historical events. Tromsø is commonly known as the gateway to the Arctic, as the city has been the starting point for several hunting, research and polar expeditions throughout history. Visit the Bangsundbrygga dock, where you can see the last existing row of warehouses in Tromsø that line the seafront. These buildings have served as warehouses for lumber, fish and catch from the Arctic hunting. Today one of these buildings houses the Full Stream experience center,  where you will discover the Tromsø region's ancient fishing history up until the early 1900s. At Full Steam, you will be greeted by a host who will guide you through the important story of cod fishing in the region. Here you will get the chance to see, hear, touch and taste the story, with samples of local cod delicacies.
