Some nice glass and you get a chance to see them making it all! Great place to catch a rest while seeing the town. Keep in mind prices in Norway are triple what you think they should be.

We watched the glass blowers make a heart (it was just before Valentine's day) and a paperweight. They were really informative and friendly, explaining how different items were made. Lots of beautiful things in the shop. Also the warmest place in Tromso!

Been there on 30th December @ 10 AM and i asked if there is any glass making activity and he said probably NO. So returned back immediately since other than glass making his items to be sold are not that attractive to buy.

We visited Blast to see some fine glass. I stepped in, and I saw a variety of glass artworks all made by Blast employees. I really appreciated the glass and will definitely visit Blast again. In addition, I highly guarantee visiting Blast while visiting Tromso.

Blast is just to the west side of town its easy to find and would interest anyone in the arts. First off I would say that no one in their right mind goes to Norway for the shopping, as everything is so expensive but particularly...More
