I suppose if you know what Roald Amundsen achieved it's nice to see a statue honoring him. He led the first expedition to traverse the Northwest Passage by sea, from 1903 to 1906, and lad the first expedition to the South Pole in 1911. To me these are all the more amazing considering they didn't have all the electronic navigation devices and synthetic materials for warm clothing available today.

Norway in general and Tromso in particular must be very proud of its world class explorers such as Roald Amundsen. This American is a big fan of Amundsen, Heyerdahl, etc.. Kudos to Tromso for this wonderful monument.

The nearby art gallery has erected a box around the bottom of the monument in a feminist move to show how influential women do not get exposure once they die. Unfortunately, they have decided to take this (correct) anger out on poor Amundsen, one of the world's greatest explorers. Why not just give Betsy her own statue?

It is FREE.

If you come to Tromsø city center, it is almost impossible to miss this triangular city park where the statue of Roald Amundsen resides, looking out to sea. I am glad that this great explorer is tastefully commemorated here as I find that Norway in general is not a bragging culture and I don't think they do nearly enough self-promotion about their historic deeds and accomplishments on the world stage. Like, in the US, we hear more about that other fellow who actually lost the race to the pole and killed himself and his team in the effort. Amundsen accomplished one of the great geographic firsts during that golden age of exploration, reaching the South Pole.

The monument itself is well done, a decent likeness, and it appropriately towers over us regular humans bigger than life. There is great attention to detail in the anorak (as I have studied that garment). It is located about a block away from the city cathedral closer to the sea and near the new transit hall, Presneset.

It is worth a brief stop as one strolls the waterfront. It is usually surrounded by seagulls, but is well maintained by the city.

A tribute to a great explorer and in a suitable location! The day we visited his statue the snow was falling quite heavily and the top part was not to be seen!

An impressive little monument in a nice little park outside the art gallery. A nice spot for a rest and a few photos.

After spending nearly 5 weeks in Scandinavia and visiting various polar expeditions museums it was easy to look upon this statue with awe at the achievements of Roald Amundsen. Lots of golf keen to get photos.
