Troms, Northern Norway
Located in the far north of the Scandinavian penninsula, Troms county is full of mountains, fjords and islands, of which the most striking are the Lyngen Alps.
Located at a latitude of nearly 70�N, Troms has short, cool summers, but fairly mild winters along the coast due to the temperate sea.
The city of Tromso, in the north central part, is the county administrative center, an Arctic seaport, and the seat of the world's northernmost university, renowned for research about the aurora borealis.
