“When we first built the hotel in 2001, we had five meeting rooms that had to be turned into a restaurant every evening. We were very good at moving chairs,” host Kjell-Ove Hveding jokes. Since then, Sommarøy Arctic Hotel Tromsø has changed significantly. There are now 11 meeting rooms, the biggest with a capacity of up to 200 people, and the venue can serve up to 250 guests for dinner. Outside is a pier perfect for barbeques, and wherever you look there is beautiful scenery. “We wanted to build one of the best coastal hotels in northern Norway, and the feedback we get suggests that we’ve achieved that goal,” says Hveding.
