The Tromso Botanic Garden is a lovely refuge a short walk from the cruise pier. There is no cost to wander around, and the plants are well marked. It was fascinating to see the similarities and differences with familiar flowers.

Very accessible but quiet refuge in Tromso. Easily reached from the cruise ship pier or via the Tromso bus system. Plan to spend 1 hour or so walking through the Botanical garden. There is no entrance fee.

Amazing botanical garden. A huge range of plants and flowers from all over the world even though this garden is above the Arctic circle. A wonderful place to just wander through...even in the rain.

Interesting collection of plants from around the world which should be relevant to everyone. There is a nice café. It is walking distance from the city center.
