Become a Tromsø expert and win a dream weekend for your family

This summer, children in Tromsø can take part in a competition to win a dream weekend for the whole family (two adults, three children) at a selected Thon Hotel in Norway. The competition is all about collecting stamps at eight  of Tromsø’s attractions. In a fun and playful way, you will be learning more about Tromsø and be able to win prizes.
 

How to take part:
  • Get your “Become an Expert of Tromsø” card at the Tourist Information Center or from any of the eight participating attractions. The card is free!
     
  • When you arrive at the attractions, you will be given a task to solve. The tasks will all be different and can be a quiz, treasure hunt or so on. It will be great fun!
     
  • Once you’ve solved the task, your card will be stamped. At some attractions you might even get a small gift after completing the task.
     
  • You need to have 3 stamps to be eligible to enter the competition.
     
  • If you manage to get all eight stamps, there are two extra prizes to be won. These great prizes will contain gifts from all the attractions!
