AMAZING PLANTS
Nov 2019
One of the most beautiful botanical gardens I’ve ever been to. Small but packed with amazing plants, also with a very nice little cafeteria and a great start for an extended walk on the Tromsø island. Definitely a must see if you are visiting the city.

Tromsø arctic alpine garden
Sep 2019 • Couples
Second visit here after a visit in summer last year. Wonderful place with less flowers here at this time but the shape, colour and texture of the plants is still excellent. Plenty of interest not only for plant and garden lovers but I found the wildlife and the geological displays great too. Not the easiest place to get to but it is served by buses and taxis ( visit Tromsø tourist information for details). Some people said that the paths were slippy but as a disabled person with a walking aid I had no problems getting around. A must visit place for all garden and nature lovers in this area.

Beautiful

This is the northernmost botanical garden in the world and very worthy of exploration. It is located outside of the downtown area and you would need some sort of transportation to get you to it (I was able to drive there in my rental car). The displays are lovely and include flora of many different shapes, sizes, and colors. There is a little shop on site from which you can buy food and drink. There are also restrooms. This is a lovely spot if you happen to be visiting Tromso.

Nothing to crow about

Not maintained, numbering adhoc and very badly organized. No sequence. You have to zig zag to find the whereabouts of the plants as per the map. Only interesting thing was the excellent herb garden

Free open-air botanic garden
Jul 2019
This nice garden is situated a little far from the city centre, but close to the University. The plants are tagged in Norwegian and Latin. There are some benches to rest and eat. Free toilet.

Wonderful flowers and well planned
Aug 2019
A nice surprise, easily reached by local bus. Many flowers and we easily spent almost 2 hours even without visiting the café.

Beautiful Gardens
Jul 2019
This is a botanical garden that is ways from where the cruise ships dock but totally worth the taxi ride and time to see it! This is a beautifully laid out and well maintained garden. The plants and groups of plants are well marked and grouped by geographic region. No cost to spend as much time there as you can allow.

Arctic–Alpine Botanic Garden
Jun 2019
Across from the planetarium, is a walking path that leads to the Botanic Gardens of Tromso. The world’s most northernmost garden’s flora comes from the cold regions of the world including the Arctic, Antarctic and Alpine. Upon entering the pathway, there is display of the different type of rocks found in northern Norway. Belonging to the Tromso Arctic University, the gardens provide an insight into plants that are able to survive the months of midnight sun and snow. We were there in the summer and saw numerous plants in boom including rhododendrons, peonies, tulips, bitter-root from North America, Siberian fall lily and the lovely Himalayan blue poppy. The gardens managed by the Tromsø University Museum and opened in 1994. There are no fences nor gates, and entrance is free of charge. Well-worth a trip out here.

Situated in town by the University
Jun 2019 • Friends
This was the last stop on our cruise ship shore excursion of Tromso as it is near the port terminal.

Very small gardens with meandering paths over large stones, small rocks and narrow footpaths. Those with mobility issues may have difficulty reaching some of the upper sections but are still able to appreciate the flowers planted at the base of the garden by the parking area.

The featured flora are native to the Alpine region. Many varieties that we rarely see.

Restrooms and a small café are on site.

Unbelievable beauty!
Jun 2019 • Couples
I couldn't believe that we were going to a Botanical Gardens in the North of Norway in June. I never expected to find flowers as beautiful as this. It's like a miniature Garden of Eden with everything you can just imagine here. With the snow-covered mountains in the background, you just can't beat the value for what is here. I believe this is the northern most Botanical Garden in the World. You have to see it. We were lucky to be there when the Tibetan Blue poppy blooms for only a couple of weeks a year.
