    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.

    Tromso Fjords

    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 …

    Arriving in Tromso

    We took an afternoon flight with Norwegian Air direct to Tromso from Gatwick. The flight was very good and it even had wi-fi a first for me when flying. It's a good idea to take snacks with you as the food is relatively expensive on board. The flight took about 3.5 hours and cost about £130 return. Once at the airport in Tromso we found the ' …

    Sami tent experience

    ... this mean we still had a chance to see the Northern Lights later?!!!! So our final night in Norway would be spent in a Lavvu, which is a temporary dwelling used by the Sami people of northern Scandinavia! Looks a bit like a wigwam tent :) Well it is a wigwam with a Norwegian twist, there is a fire going inside! Not sure if UK health and safety would deem this safe! Supper consisted of Biddos, which is a traditional Sami vegetable soup and reindeer meat! It was very yummy! Then ...
