Overview
More
The northernmost escape room in the world! You and your teammates will be given a mission and locked in a room full of codes, puzzles and cryptic leads, with 60 minutes to solve them all. Your only available tools will be creative thinking, teamwork and collaboration, and hopefully you will complete the mission before the hour is up. Bring a playful mood and an open mind!

Although I’ve done better escape rooms you have to travel a long way from Tromsø to do them, and bagging the northern most escape room in the world should be on every escapologists list. Well worth it. Tip: make sure you get your student discount.
