Family outing to the Botanical Garden and Science Center with German/English speaking guide. Bring your kids and inner child on this family outing to visit the northernmost Botanical garden and The Science Centre of Northern Norway. Join us on a 2,5 hour educational, fun and energetic time just a 15 minutes walk from the harbour in Breivika.
The Tromsø Arctic-Alpine Botanical Garden is home to thousands of plants and species from all parts of the world. Here you´ll find tough little plants from the polar regions or the high mountains, which have difficulties surviving in the milder climates where most botanical gardens are located. We will take the whole family on a guided tour through the Botanical Garden, while keeping the kids interest with small assignments and quiz-games through the walk. (..and there might be a prize for everybody at the end of the tour through the Botanical Garden)
We will also take you all to the Science Centre, which is located right above the Botanical Garden. It offers plenty of educational fun and close to a hundred interactive exhibits within the following topics: The sky above, Climate and weather, Energy and environment and Body and brain. A visit to the Science Centre is definitely for the curious-minds of all ages.
At the Science Center you also find Norway´s largest all-dome full digital planetarium. Under the 360° planetarium dome, breathtaking shows come alive. The topics of the shows vary from the origin of life, stars and the universe, to our living climate and spectacular rides through the cells of the human body.*
When both kids and grown ups are exhausted and filled with new lessons our guide will walk you safely back to the ship.
