Storsteinen is a scenic spot overlooking the city of Tromsø. It is a 420-meter-high mountain that sits slightly deeper than the coastline of the Norwegian mainland. It offers a broad view of the island that floats like a sandbar in the deep inlet of the fjord, and of the city that lives there. The night view of the city, with its shimmering lights and the aurora borealis coloring the sky in harmony, is miraculous in its beauty. It is a spectacular view that everyone who visits here wishes to see.
Tromsø, the central city of northern Norway, is located in an intricate fjord and consists of the mainland and several islands. The city has flourished as a base for Arctic exploration and as a fishing base due to its relatively mild climate despite its location in the Arctic Circle, and boasts such beauty and rich culture that it has been called the "Paris of the North”. Tromsø is also famous as a place to observe the northern lights. Every year, many visitors come to Tromsø to see the fantastic aurora borealis shimmering above the city like a sea of light.
