I walked to the Chapel from the cruise ship area. I enjoyed walking over the bridge, but that might be too much for someone who is not used to walking or if you have limited time. There was an entrance fee. The cathedral is beautiful...More

This was a really beautiful experience. We attended the Arctic Cathedral Midnight Concert and it was wonderful. The cathedral has excellent acoustics and the singers performances were delightful. Would recommend anyone to make the effort to get to the concert. Well worth a visit.

So we decided to walk to the Arctic Cathedral across the bridge, which should take about 20 mins but we probably took longer due to the awesome views we kept stopping to check out! The cathedral itself reminded me Toblerone, it was definitely unique in...More

again probably too late, but I would say it IS worth paying to go into the Catheral, the views of the lights streaming through are wonderful and the price goes to the upkeep of the Church
