A few photos from around the city of Tromso, Norway. Home to the northernmost university, brewery, Burger King, botanical garden, and probably a whole lot more.

The Mack Brewery features a nice tour of the brewery, which is also home to the northernmost Coca-cola bottler, and is one of very few that can use local water untreated to mix with the Coke syrup and still meets the strict quality standards that Coke has. I'm not a huge soda drinker, but I'd argue that the bottled Coke there is better than anywhere else I've had it.

The most popular beers in northern Norway are Germanic based, so there's a whole lot of pilsners and lagers, most of which have very mild flavors. I came back to the US very happy to enjoy some bitter Chinook and Cascade hops ... a taste that just can't be found in Europe!

Tromso was once a main base for many Arctic activities, from expedition/exploration to fishing. There's plenty of examples of that life here by way of Polar Bears, seals, whales, and any number of other typically arctic things.

I don't think that Greenpeace has a branch office here.
