    The hotel has a great location in the centre of Tromsø. It is truly budget, so don't expect any frills other than free wifi.

    Great budget hotel in the centre of Tromso. The breakfast was very good. The airport bus stops just around the corner making it very easy to get to.

    When we woke up this morning, it was still snowing and still dark. We knew off course that the sun wouldn't rise this time of the year in Tromsų, but it still takes some getting used to. We had a quick breakfast before heading out to explore the city.

    Our first stop was the Arctic Cathedral. We had thought about walking there and from the …

    Today is the start of a life-long dream of mine: visiting the Arctic and hopefully seeing the northern lights!

    I have been perusing weather and aurora forecast websites for the last few days, hoping to see clear weather with above normal solar activity. However, the forecasts keep changing (especially the weather), so I have now decided …

    ... we are East facing, the orange light reflected on the snowy mountains. Pretty. Then sadly as it became dark, the clear sky became filled with clouds. So no chance of seeing the lights again from the city. Monday 16 March 2015 Another lie in today, feeling a bit achy after the past couple of days! After another massive plate of melon, we headed off to explore the other side of the city, across the harbour to the mainland. We caught a bus, a blooming expensive bus, at £5 ...

    The artic cathedral from this side is already spectacular, and I keep thinking how awesome it would be to return during the midnight sun season to watach a concert in it.

    So yes, we decided to walk. It was windy and all but the bridge is not long and I miss ...
