Make the most of the midnight sun
In the city where the sun never sets (in the summer months, at least), make the most of an evening in Tromsø with the Midnight Sun Tromsø E-Bike Tour. This 3 hour bicycle tour will introduce you to the history and culture of one of Norway's northernmost cities, which has long been a hub for culture, fishing, and Arctic exploration.
The northerly location of Tromsø and the tilt of the earth's axis in the summer months produces an unusual phenomenon: the midnight sun. Make the most of the long daylight hours by rounding off your day of sightseeing with an evening city tour. As the cultural hub of the region, steeped in Norse and Sámi heritage, Tromsø is a city with much to offer: the harbor, Skansen, Vervet, The Arctic University of Tromsø, Prestvannet, and Telegrafbukta. Your e-bike tour’s knowledgeable local guide will draw your attention to the lesser known spots frequented by locals, and will sketch a vivid portrait of island life in this unique nordic city.
Also known as the 'Gateway to the Arctic', Tromsø was the starting point for many famous Arctic expeditions in the 20th century, thanks to its favorable geographic location and the savvy Arctic knowledge of its inhabitants. The city also enjoys the nickname ‘Paris of the North’, which has stuck since the 19th century, when visitors discovered a surprising sophistication compared to the southern Nordic peoples. Your guide on this day tour will deepen your knowledge of this characterful and historic city, rich in both adventure and culture.

Family Fun through Tromsø
If you want to experience Tromsø as a local, this tour is a can’t miss experience. Our family of 5 riders ranged in age from 13 to 66. We have biked together before on city tours throughout the U.S. Everyone rated this one a favorite! First, the e-bikes were top of the line and our guide, Espen, took the time to show how to use them properly . He had us practice before beginning the rise. We appreciated his patience and focus on safety. We traveled along the shoreline and through local parks. We were lucky to see groups of families together celebrating Midsommar with bonfires on the beach. It was so special to see this annual event. Our journey continued through the more wooded areas of Tromsø and we all appreciated the e-bikes on some of the tougher hills. We saw many local areas and sites that showcased Tromsø as a great location as a place to live or for travel. Espen was a wonderful guide for this tour! As a native son of Tromsø his love for his community was evident at every stop. The Tromsø tourism board should have him run all of their tours! If you are looking for a fun ride exploring the city of Tromsø with a friendly and knowledgeable guide, this is it!
