While it isn’t that often that I dine out in Tromsø, for the occasions that I do, it’s been an absolute pleasure.

Graffi Grill Tromsø is one of my favourite places to dine. Located along Tromsø harbour at the port terminal at Prostneset, the restaurant is easily accessible, and for the moment, fully decked for the festive yultide season. My favourite is the grill sample platter, with a variety of grilled meats and accompanying side dishes. We went crazy this time, and settled for a medium rare entrecôte. Totally enjoyed the yuletide vibes at the restaurant, and looking forward to the next occasion to visit.

Entrecôte seasoned with black and white pepper. Accompanying the grilled meat was a selection of sauces, and a side of french fries.

A street away from Graffi Grill is Tromsø Cathedral, the world’s northernmost Lutheran Cathedral. It stands here in the light of mørketid. Mørketid 2021 for Tromsø is between 27 Nov. 2021 to 15 Jan. 2022. Mørketid occurs in the Arctic region, where the sun does not rise above horizon and beautiful hues of midnight blues can be observed.
