      nightlife and new moon phase

      Tromsø Feb 17, 2015 at 2:23 PM

      investigating a possible trip for next year, end of december 2016 and was wondering if tromso has much of a nighlife? I know it will be dark, but are bars open till at least 10pm? also, the dates we are thinking about, the moon would be in the "new" moon phase--is that too bright to see the Northern lights? I know it depends on nature if we see this or not, and we would book with a company--but I wanted to see if we should even try at all. thanks!

Or is the route very beautiful and should be traveled in day time only? My main purpose of visit to Norway is to experience Mid Night Sun.

      I am looking for a great place -- town, lake, hotel about half way between Oslo and Stockhom for a one night stopover. Cost is a consideration but we want to take advantage of the fact that we will be traveling in a rental car at the end of September so it could be a little ways off the main route in either Norway or Sweden.

      Honningsvåg Jun 9, 2014 at 6:44 AM

      We are due at Honningsvaag on Ruby Princess on 23rd June and have just been reading about Boreal Transport on line. They advertise the first departure for 11.45am but since there will be a cruise ship in port will there be any earlier bus departures? Can you also tell me the various return departure times from North Cape as we would want to be back on board well before our 5.00pm sailing time? How long do people usually stay at the North Cape to get full benefit from their visit?
      Any help or advice you could give us would be greatly appreciated. I look forward to hearing from you as soon as possible.
      Thank you.

      I'm seeking information on the hike to the real North Cape, about 9 km off of E69. We are coming in on a cruise, arriving at 8 a.m., getting a rental car at 8:30, and I'm guessing we could be at trail head, parking area by 9:15. Is it realistic to make the hike from there in 2.5 hours, and 3 hours on the return to the car, back to car say by 2:45? Can you get further down the trail in a car to drop off hikers, shortening the hike by a mile or two? answer to email

      -by Train : Trondheim-Lillehammer (overnight).
      -by Bus : Lillehamer-Bergen (overnight).
      -by Train : Bergen-Oslo-end.

      1. How far is Rica Arctic Hotel Kirkenes and Rica Bryggen Hotel Honningsvag from the Bus station going to/from Kirkenes and Honningsvag..
      2. How to book a seat reservation for my journey from Kirkenes-Honningsvag-Alta-Tromso.
      3. How much is the ticket fare of each leg.
      3. Do you have the time table.
      3. Do you have the email address of the relevant Bus Operator or a Tourist Agency in

      Kirkenes or Honningsvag, for me to contact them.

      4. Do you have the email address of the Bus Operator connecting Kirkenes-Murmansk. I will contact them to book seat reservation of my trip from Murmansk to Kirkenes.

      Dear Sir/Madam, please, your help will be highly appreciated

    • How long should I stay in Kirkenes?

      Kirkenes Nov 11, 2013 at 7:46 AM

      I’m traveling up North with Hurtigruten to Kirkenes at the end of December. In Kirkenes I will spend 1 night at the snow hotel, do a half day dog sledding trip, and do the tour offered by Hurtigruten.

      I have the option to spend up to two nights in Kirkenes, but was unsure if there is actually enough to do aside from winter activities. I don’t plan on doing any other ones like snow mobiling or King crab fishing, etc. Is there enough to see and do culturally that I should stay two nights, or is one full day enough in Kirkenes?

      Thanks in advance for your help!
