Affiliated with the University, this amazing botanical garden is the northern most botanical garden. We were amazed at the diversity of exhibits and how well done they are. Donations are requested but not required. It's well worth a walk through.

Well organised and cared for (by the university I think) lots of info but mostly in Norwegian. Also a nice place to walk around on a sunny day.

Lovely gardens, so well laid out with some amazing plants if you like that sort of thing. Sadly no refreshments available and the loo facilities are severly lacking.

We visited the planetarium and then walked around this beautiful rock garden across the street. We thought there was more somewhere else, not sure that we experienced the entire Botanical Garden, but this one collection of plantings was just gorgeous.
