The garden has plants from all over the world, especially mountain plants. The garden is designed to make you walk between the flowers and experience some beautiful greens and informative signs. They also serve great waffles in the middle of the day. Obviously, in Winter there is only snow. Visit between May and September.

What a wonderful place, we had a beautiful sunny day and the plants and flowers were absolutely beautiful, we spent ages just wandering around and taking it all in. The gardens are kept exceptionally well and they are definitely well worth a visit. Daffodils in July - who'd have thought! loved it.

I was just walking around when I came across this place. Seeing as this was in the middle of October I thought there wouldn't be much about but I was wrong. There was a number of different plants all set in beautiful surroundings.

The garden can be reached through a geological trail which was a great start (from the bus stop by the University). We were amazed how much was in flower and enjoyed a huge variety of plants and the informative information about each section.

We took the taxi from the city center to this wonderful and decent-sized garden. I am guessing it is nicer during spring to midsummer, but even on a partly cloud end-of-summer day it was gorgeous. A map of the garden is posted at multiple locations for easy guidance, and a little playground/obstacle course for children to play in at one... More

Coming from Australia, all our local attractions are the Biggest in the Southern Hemisphere. Equally, everything in Tromso tends to be the most Northerly. I think the Tromso Brewery has a bigger claim to fame but the Gardens are also well worth a leisurely stroll downhill from the University. Everything is well labelled and laid out and they've really packed... More

The most nortern botanical garden. Free and open 24 hours. Located near the university campus. IF entering from the university side then you walk through the woods to reach the garden which is pleasant as a geological history is laid out. The garden produces guides for any particular highlight at the time. In July it was a blue poppy form... More

I have during the summer of 2015 walked many walks through the botanical gardens. They are beautiful, and fascinating, with arctic fauna!
