Know More about this tour

The price of this tour includes:
- A qualified guide at your disposal
- Ten samples of locally produced beer
- City walking tour
- Arctic tapas
- Visit to three venues

Your guide will meet you at the tourist information office at Prostneset. From there you will first walk 500m to the first stop at the world's northernmost brewery. On the way your guide will tell you about the historical significance of the site of the world's northernmost Protestant cathedral, and give a brief summary about how its history is intertwined with that of the Mack brewery and Tromso's oldest pub Olhallen.

Olhallen is the place in Tromso with the largest selection of Mack beer from the world's northernmost brewery on tap, and they are also serving 50 different craft beers from Norwegian microbreweries – on tap! Their draught system is the largest in Europe. Sample some of Mack's most popular products, including among others a dark lager, which has been continuously brewed since 1878, making it Mack's oldest still existing product - a true taste of history.

After the tasting you'll visit Kjeller 5, one of the brewery's old storage basements, that has now been turned into Tromsø's only specialty shop for brewing ingredients and beer – a great place to buy gifts and souvenirs!

From there, it's time to walk along the entire length of Tromso's bustling main street (~900m), giving you a chance to see a selection of the most important sights our city has to offer, such as the world's northernmost Catholic and Protestant cathedrals, a number of statues, traditional wooden houses, and another local microbrewery. You'll even encounter the spot with the highest density of sights in all of Tromso!

The final stop of the tour will be a traditional local pub, whose atmosphere is reflecting the maritime history of our city. There you are invited to taste further products from Arctic craft breweries, together with a selection of Arctic tapas, such as reindeer carpaccio or cold-smoked salmon. The tour ends here after the tasting, and you may either choose to stay on your own and have dinner – and/or full-sized beers – at this local restaurant, or you may choose to have your guide accompany you either to Hurtigruten just in time for its departure, or to the meeting point of your northern light expedition.

It is recommended to book well in advance, as this tour is strictly limited to a maximum of 15 participants.

  • Fun way to explore Tromso and meet fun people for an afternoon!

  • The tour was fun and informative but the description made it sound as though we'd be receiving our own plate of tapas. Instead, we had to share with another tour guest. First world problems, I know, but it was very misleading.

  • If you like beer, food and a bit of history then this is the tour for you. Our guide Bernard was very knowledgeable about both the local history of Tromso and the beers as well. We sampled many beers from the local region. A highlight was the Mack Brewery bar with 67 beers on tap unfortunately not enough time to sample them all. The food provided was also excellent. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking to do something a bit different in Tromso. It was fairly good value for money in Norway where everything is very pricey.
