Trip Report A Few Days Without Sunlight, Above The Arctic Circle, Tromso Norway.

Jump to last reply

After about twelve hours of flying I am at 69 North, 18 East in “The Land Of The Midnight Sun” except I am here to experience life without a few days of sunshine.

Arriving in Tromso I am met at the airport by my host for place I will be staying over the next few days. After dropping off another guest at a different location, I am driven to a “Home Sleep” apartment in a local neighborhood. Here I will be staying in a private room sharing the apartment with a family from South Africa. Already I feel like I am going to have a more genuine Norwegian experience.

A few minutes spent chatting with my fellow guests and my excitement has already grown at all the possible fun things to do. Door sledding tomorrow where I can drive my own sled, a Northern Light excursion, Skiing & Snowshoeing so much to do.

For now, it's a walk into town for dinner then time to explore Tromso's nightlife as I wait for the skies to clear and hopefully some Northern Lights to appear.
