      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.

      Staff have been brilliant, very helpful with every request. Location is great, everything within walking distance. Highly recommended, free breakfast hits the spot too. I would stay here again no problems.

      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 …

      Start of a dream

      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 …

      Today we were having a trip outside Tromso to see the Fjords. We were met by our Sami guide Marie at the tourist office and off we went back through the Kvalsund Tunnel to the island of Kvaloya. Here we had plenty of photo stops to take the amazing scenery. Our first stop was just as we crossed to the island. The sunrise was spectacular and a …

      Today we were to do dog sledding with Arctic Adventure Tours, something I was really looking forward to as we had never tried anything like this before. It was a 30 minute ride to Kvalųya island (Whale Island) and we watched as the temperature dropped to -16C in some places on the way - it was going to be cold. The scenery was beautiful as it was …

      The next day we had time to see the sites of Tromso. We bought an all day ticket but made a mistake with our first bus and found ourselves too far out of town. The sunrise today painted the sky with pink hues around the mountains, at least finding ourselves out of town we were able to look back at Tromso and see the mountains behind. We took a bus …
