The Tromsø Bridge is a cantilever road bridge in the city of Tromsø. The 1,036 metre long bridge has 58 spans, of which the longest is 80 metres with a maximum clearance to the sea of 38 metres. It crosses the Tromsøysundet strait between Tromsdalen on the mainland and the island of Tromsøya.

The church is in an ideal setting, centrally located in Tromsdalen and on a slight hill, close to the Tromsø Bridge. It´s location makes it visible from the island itself and from the housing areas on the mainland. Whether travellers come by boat or by car, the church is easily seen and found.

The Arctic Cathedral is a name often given to the church. Perhaps because it has become a major tourist attraction in Tromsø? The large, angular formation and the light colour can easily be associated with an iceberg.

Tromsø is actually on an island, Tromsøya. The Tromsø sound divides the town from the mainland, where the famous Arctic Cathedral stands with its unique architecture. On the mainland, a 4-minute trip by cable car takes you up Storsteinen mountain, 420 metres above sea level. At the top there is a magnificent viewpoint and Fjellstua restaurant. The Coastal Steamer (Hurtigruten) has daily departures.

Between the end of November and January, the sun remains below the horizon, and Tromsø is in darkness. The winter is the best season to see the Northern Lights (Aurora Borealis).
