Tromso Airport Guide
Tromsø Airport is the main airport of Tromsø and the surrounding Arctic region. The airport is located about 5 kilometres (20 minutes) from the city centre. To get to Tromsø Airport from Tromsø itself, get onto the Langnestunnelen and head for the Kvaløyvegen. Once on the Kvaløyvegen, take the exit for the Flyplassvegen and follow the signs for the airport. Tromsø Airport is a small airport, with basic facilities. It is mainly used as a local flight airport rather than international, though there are a few international flights each week.
Tromsø is situated right in the centre of the Northern Lights zone and is, therefore, together with the interior ice in Greenland the tundra in northern Canada, among the best places on earth to observe this phenomenon. Most of the Northern Lights outbursts visible from Tromsø are green, but large outbursts can also include other colours. In order to see the Northern Lights, it must be dark and clear – the reason that you never see the Northern Lights between May and August. The greatest frequency is between 6pm and 2am.
