The Tromsø Botanical Gardens are just across the street from the cruise terminal, perhaps a few hundred meters to the southwest of the cruise terminal bus stop. There’s even a tunnel under the road so that you can get there without crossing against traffic.
I’d love to be there during the evening and morning; these pictures were taken in very challenging afternoon light, and during the summer, the “golden hour” for photography really lasts something like 15 hours, starting sometime in the early evening and stretching all the way through until sometime in the morning! ☺
In gentler light, it would be possible to give a sense of the layout of the gardens, how pleasant they are to wander through. But since we were there mid-afternoon, I’ll just ask you to take my word for it.

These flowers are from all sorts of northern or cold environments: the Himalayas, Northern Canada, Russia, Alaska… I think there were some from the extreme southern hemisphere, but I don’t remember. This was one of my favorite stops on the trip.
