This tiny little village with a lovely beach is about 45 mins drive from Tromsø through lovely landscape. Apart from the beach there is not much to do, but the seclusion and quietness of the area is well worth a half day's trip.

Too bad the weather wasn't working for us. It was snowing heavily and the clouds cover the peaks. Otherwise, I'm sure it affords breathtaking views.

Grøtfjord is one of the most beautiful places I've visited outside Tromsø. A good place to camp and enjoy it's white sandy beaches. I was there last year in July. I will definitely og back.

Nice beach and beautiful view to the mountains. Road to Grotfjord is very narrow but very good to drive. Beware of oncoming traffic.

I'd heard this place was a good location for capturing the northern lights and I wasn't disappointed. If you have a car you can get here within about 45 mins from Tromso. Worth a visit both day and night.
