The road Kvaløyveien divides the museum area into two “courtyards”. By the sea stands the beautiful Kvitnesgården along with a large boathouse, Stornaustet, and buildings that were originally located in Tromsø center. On the opposite side of the road stands Mortengården, constituting the centre in a cluster of six log houses from the early 19th century.

The tour will then proceed with a panoramic sight seeing across the city and stop at the Arctic- Alpine Botanical Garden for a visit to the flower and plant collection.
