"Botanisk Hage" Botanical Gardens - Botanisk Hage Tip by zweiblumen

 
 

The Botanisk Hage, Tromsø are the World's most northerly botanical gardens, worth a visit for that fact alone. The Gulf stream moderates the climate, so although Tromsø is some 360km north of the Arctic Circle they are able to grow plants here that you would not normally find in such northern latitudes.
