Driving to the Midnight Sun

Jump to last reply

I'm looking at possibilities for a couple of weeks in June - our previous plans for April in Tuscany have been torpedoed by - ick - work, so looking at other possibilities. We'll be in Stockholm, and am thinking about hitting the road to the north.

Various mapping sites say it's about a 3-day drive from Stockholm up to the far north - Hammerfest, Kirkenes, Tromso etc. Can anybody confirm those times are about right? How are road conditions in mid June? (Our experience in the north is from Alaska, where many roads are prone to frost heaves, closures etc., but those are different geological areas, so not sure how comparable.)

I think it would be fun to spend some time above the Arctic circle in June, since we're planning an Antarctic cruise in December.

Any input is most welcome.
