In the Footsteps of Amundsen: Guided city walk of Tromsø
Your guide will stop by the statue of Roald Amundsen. Amundsen started several of his polar expeditions from Tromsø. In 1928, Amundsen had spent 35 years of exploring and establishing a new standard for what it meant to be a man of discovery. He set out from Tromsø to find his former friend, now an enemy. It was none other than the Italian explorer Umberto Nobile. Nobile had been lost in the Arctic, never to return. During his hunt for Nobile’s remains, Amundsen’s seaplane crashed somewhere in the Barents Sea. His body was never found, neither were the bodies of the five-member crew.
Your guided walking tour will end at Polar Museum. Here you can see a photo exhibition depicting the life and adventures of Roald Amundsen in the Polar regions. The museum also exhibits artifacts from Amundsen’s famous expeditions. Some of those considered the greatest gems of Norway’s proud polar history.
