Top Image: 2982

The worlds Northernmost Botanic garden features, Arctic, Antarctic and alpine plants from all continents, along with perennials and herbs of traditional use. The Tromsø Arctic-Alpine Botanical Garden is home to thousands of plant species from all parts of the world. The emphasis is, however, on plants from the polar regions or the high mountains, which have difficulty surviving in the milder climates where most botanical gardens are located. With its long, snowy winters and cool, moist summers, the Tromsø climate is ideal for these plants, providing the perfect conditions for tough little plants that are a little sensitive to heat. The garden also features rock formations and areas of gravel that recreate the conditions where the hardy plants grow wild.
