Telegraph bay

This place is popular with the locals in the summer. You might even encounter people enjoying swimming in the clear waters of the bay. Try it yourself, if you dare.

The little red hut is where the telegraph cable came ashore in 1894, and connected Tromsø with the world ever since.Hence the name “Telegraph bay”.

A festival of rock music takes place here in July, simply called BUKTA (“the Bay”). Many international stars have performed here, like Motörhead, Iggy & The Stooges and Patti Smith.
