    Fourth Port : Tromso

    January 8 in Norway

    Not much this morning, breakfast, a talk on Hunters and Trappers and lunch. In the afternoon we docked at Tromso for a few hours. Tromso looks like a pretty town but it is a little difficult to tell as it is 2.30 pm and already dark and lots of snow. We walked a short distance to the Polar Museum, it was very interesting and took about 45 min. We then wandered through old town and then into the main city centre. We had our usual coffee and cake before heading back to the ship. After dinner we went up to the top deck where the Captain was preparing some dried fish for us to try. The fish is caught then gutted and left to dry by the wind and snow on the racks on the top deck for a few months. We tried a little bit and both think we would need to be very hungry to eat it on a regular basis. We then came to the room to relax when there was a Northern Lights announcement so we then put back on all the layers of clothes and proceeded to the top deck for a viewing but alas it was very weak. So still no strong coloured Northern Lights.Read more

    Tromsø, Norway

    December 26, 2016 in Norway

    Today, we are en route to Tromso via Oslo and let me tell you that airport is a bitch for transfers. I don't know why they make it so much more complicated that it really is. In the morning, we spent some time in Berlin still but again being the holidays a lot of things weren't open early.

    We touched down in Tromso around 7pm so it was too late to go on a Northern Lights tour. We went to a pub for dinner and then another bar for drinks; the second bar ended up being a Boston bar. How weird.

    Tromso was snowing and it was pretty damn cold. Since it was nighttime, it did not look too impressive, but the lights made it look magical!

    Tromsø, Norway

    December 28, 2016 in Norway

    Today, we drank a lot of beer. Tromso was home to one of the oldest breweries and now has a defunct brewery space that is used for tours. The pub next door has dozens of beers on tap, so there was a lot of variety to choose from. The bartender was also very helpful in helping select beers. Kudos to her!

    We had a large bus tour today to see the lights and it was less impressive given the visibility was low. You can faintly see the lights and you really needed a camera to better capture it. It also sucks that we had such a great showing the very first night, so that set a very high bar for the rest of the nights. It was still a good experience nonetheless since it was different from the mini bus tour. We had to drive out to Finland to chase the lights, so it felt way more exhausting. zzzzzzzzzz.

    P.S. The northern lights photos are from Chasing Lights. They took some cool shots of the bus and cars with the lights.

    Tromsø, Norway

    December 29, 2016 in Norway

    Last day in Tromso! Wow, time flies. Today was a day of sleeping in and we went to get coffee and a light breakfast before going on a brewery tour at Mack Brewery. Learned some cool things and then drank a few beers in their taproom. We then had dinner at Mathallen, which was a bit pricey at $50pp but delicious! The soup appetizer had the softest crab and this chive oil that I'm not sure if it added any flavor to the dish but was a beautiful color. The Norwegian beef was also delicious though a bit on the salty side. After dinner, we went to our last Northern Lights tour--a cruise tour. While we did not see the Northern Lights this night, the cruise itself was cool. Again, a different experience and it was cool to have 3 nights of Northern Lights chasing with a success rate of 67%. 10/10 would do again.Read more

    Tromsø

    August 10, 2017 in Norway

    Die flächenmäßig größte Stadt von Norwegen war sehr schön 😊 Wir haben ein Museum besucht was Information über das Polargebiet bereithielt und wir haben die Eismeerkathedrahle besucht deren Design an einen Eisberg erinnern soll. Sehr schöne Kirche und sehr Moden. Dann haben wir noch das Stadtzentrum besucht 😍 mit einer Fußgängerzone und allerhand kleiner süßer Geschäfte.
    Die Stadt hat uns sehr gut gefallen und ist auf jeden Fall ein Besuch wert aber es ist wie jede Stadt in Norwegen, sehr überschaubar und allzuviele Aktivitäten gibt es nicht 🙈

    We went on a Fjord Excursion today, which was a last minute decision. It was so great! Being in the snow and all. I felt like we had the perfect introduction to Norway! We even saw whales without having to go on a specific whale watching excursion.

    At night we went to our first Northern Lights tour with Northern Soul Adventures and saw the Nothern Lights on our first attempt! Ahhh how fucking majestic. Everybody must experience the magic behind the lights. It was such a fulfilling experience and honestly it was Northern Soul Adventures that made it so worthwhile! I can finally check the Aurora Borealis off my bucket list (':Read more
