Valhall Stadion – Tromsø, Norway

Valhalla StadionJust when I think I won’t find another track that’s farther to the north, one more shows up.  Today’s Norwegian track is even deeper into the arctic circle than yesterday’s, and is located in Tromsø.  Valhall Stadion has a really nice looking Tartan track, and one that appears to be fairly new.  There are eight full lanes here.  The horizontal jumps are located between the bleachers on the west side and the track.  All other field events are found on the inside of the track.  And as you can see in the photo below, the views from the track are pretty nice too!  This venue has a long history, with a track being here since 1920.  The BUL-Tromsø Friidrett track club has some pretty cool photos of this track on their Facebook page too.
