Tromsø under the Rainbow

Bank & Currency

The official currency of Norway is the Norwegian krone (NOK), but several attractions, local buses, the Tourist Information Office and taxi companies accept some foreign currencies. However, they may charge a fee, offer a poorer exchange rate or only give change in NOK.

Bank and currency

There are currently no money exchange agencies in Tromsø, so we recommend that you exchange currency at Oslo airport on arrival in Norway.

ATM machines are widely available in downtown Tromsø and at Tromsø airport. Please note that owing to bank fees it may be cheaper to use your credit card instead of exchanging money.

Major credit and debit cards, such as Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Diners, are widely accepted throughout Norway.
