Located above the Arctic Circle beyond the 69th parallel, Tromso is sometimes called «Paris of North». During our two-day stop in the city, at the end of June, we discovered such a green city where the temperatures were warm enough for us to wear our shorts and T-shirts! What a contrast with the temperature and the landscapes of the Canadian Far North located at the same latitude. Thanks go to the Gulf Stream! During our stay our greatest pleasure was to board the Fjellheisen cable car to reach a splendid panoramic view of the whole the area and hike under full day light or the midnight sun!
