Well this is so special it deserves an entry all to itself.
We got all rugged up last night and headed to the Tourist Information Bureau for our guide to pick us up - but no-one there. Started to wonder if it was us - twice in one day.
Should say here that yesterday we headed round to the Tourist Information to see if there were …
So today we were meant to be going dog sledding - up early, breakfast and all wrapped up and ready to go outside the hotel at 9.30am. But nobody there!
At 10.00am I asked the hotel reception to check with them. Story was that they tried to get in touch with us - the hotel were very unimpressed with this! - but the tour had been put off …
So was wide awake very early this morning but was good as we got all packed and headed down for breakfast and we were the first people there.
We checked out and crossed the road to the National Theater station where we wanted to catch the Flytoget - train to the airport. I had all sorts of dramas trying to buy us tickets at the ticket …
Sorry the pictures are a bit **** - our camera doesn't deal with low light situations very well. Norway was so pretty and our photos really don't capture it's beauty, oh well, next time.
I always think it's funny how sometimes things just fall into place. To be honest I thought that Christmas day on this holiday might end up being a bit of a downer for us. There didn't seem to be anything much happening in the hotel, the shops were all closed and I envisioned Craig and I sitting in our room drinking coffee (since we'd donated our …

TravelPod Member ReviewsRadisson Blu Hotel, Tromso Tromsø
Our stay at the Radisson Blu Hotel (aka Radisson SAS Hotel) was pleasant. With had a minor problem with our booking, but after a while everything was cleared out and we went to the designated room.
I'll make a small review for the following categories:
ROOM: We had an average size room. Two separate beds (-) and with clean linen (+). In the room you have a TV, Minibar, Trouser pressing machine and AC. No safe, though.
One of the windows had a small breach (was not completely isolated from the exterior) and you could hear the wind enter the room (-).
In my opinion, the decoration was a little 90's and old fashioned. But the hotel is in renovations, so there's hope :)
CLEANLINESS: The room, the linen, the bathroom was very clean.
BREAKFAST: Great breakfast. Lot of variety! The breakfast room is very large and with a lot of tables and you don't feel like in a small crowded place.
STAFF: The staff were helpful and nice. Althought many say that the nordics are "cold", I disagree. All the staff I've met we very warm and always ready to help you with a smile! (+)
LOCATION: Very close to the Flybussen stop and the main city street. You have a great view to the Artic Cathedral and the moutains, when staying at the top floors.
OVERALL: I'm pleased with my stay and I recommend staying here when visiting Tromso
