This Northern Norwegian recreational ski race was held in a town called Tromso.
TROMSO, a seaport of Norway, capital of the amt (county) and stift (diocese) of the same name on the north-western coast.
Tromso was founded in 1794.
South of the Arctic circle they are, under ordinary circumstances, confined to the plateaus covered with dwarf birch and juniper above the conifer-region, though in Tromso amt and in Finmarken they occur in all suitable localities down to the level of the sea.
The party, with the exception of three, returned to the ship after an absence of 104 days, and the "Stella Polare" returned to Tromso in September 1900.
